The man has a sweet tooth. I’m lucky not to have it, but he does….at 11 o’clock at night. That’s not a keto friendly time! So, I made this fast and easy…takes less than 5 minutes to make. This mug cake has become my go-to for him. Ends up with 6 net carbs and is fluffy and delicious!
Keto chocolate mug cake
Measure out 2 Tbsp. butter and put it inside the mug you will be using.
Microwave the butter for 20-25 seconds until it mostly melted and hot. Add your sweetener to the melted butter.
Add your 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder to the butter.
Add egg. It will help the cake rise.
Mix the ingredients well, until everything is combined and there’s as little lumps as you can get. If you’re going to make 2 servings, this is the point where you would measure the batter out into 2 mugs or 2 ramekins. NOTE: the nutrition information I have given is for ONE serving, so if you're sharing, the net carbs are half.
Microwave the cake for 60-75 seconds. It takes 75 seconds in my microwave. If you are making 2 servings, probably 50-60 seconds would do the best.
While you’re waiting for the cake to cook, whip some cream in a mixing bowl. (Optional)
I do this by using an immersion blender – very quick, easy, and tasty but it will produce stiff peaked whipped cream (and to some it may be over whipped). Pour enough whipping cream into a container to cover the immersion blender blades. Blend for 20-40 seconds until you reach the consistency you want.
Let the cake cool for a moment and spoon on the whipped cream. (Optional)
Chefs notes: Note: You can use any low carb/low glycemic sweetener for this.
