How To Make A Chocolate Mug Cake Easy- Step By Step

  1. First, making a chocolate keto mug cake with coconut flour is easy but the 3 ingredient method I don’t stand by. You want/need the best mug cake possible and it’s my job to provide that with my recipes.
  2. Start out with grabbing coconut flour, dutch process cocoa powder, sweetener, baking powder and salt.
  3. Then, you wet ingredients are an egg, liquid sweetener, vanilla extract and sour cream.
  4. Next, combine all those ingredients into a mug or small bowl.
  5. Cook for 2 minutes in the microwave. yes, you also need more than just a 1 minute mug cake.
  6. Don’t even allow it to cool when done. Scoop some keto ice cream and dig in with the coolness and warm gooey center.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Each ingredient matters in this chocolate keto mug cake with coconut flour recipe. But, you can skip a few without altering taste. However, you will sacrifice texture in the process. See the list of ingredients that can be removed here: sour cream, vanilla extract, baking powder.
  • You can not switch the coconut flour for almond flour in this recipe.
  • Two minutes is required for a fully cooked mug cake. For a moist, gooey center cook for 1.5 minutes or even just 1 minute. The outside will be done with a slightly undercooked gooey inside to pair with your ice cream.
  • Use cocoa powder or dutch process cocoa? Don’t cheat yourself here! Using regular cocoa powder doesn’t produce that rich chocolate flavor you get out of your favorite chocolate recipes. Think Oreo’s or brownies, they both use dutch process cocoa. Can you sub, yes but do you really want to?

Why Does Keto Mug Cake Come Out Dry

It’s all in the ingredients. Coconut flour is dry and there is a balance that’s needed. I make coconut flour recipes all the time. In the beginning, I had to learn to make it work. If too much liquid you over saturate the coconut flour and it’s mushy. If not enough liquid or the right amount of moisture then you get a dry mug cake. An egg and sour cream combination create a perfect texture and balance of moisture in your crumb.

Can You Substitute Coconut Flour For Almond Flour

As mentioned above, no! Please avoid this disaster. Almond flour is more resistant to absorbing liquid. I show full examples in video here. I have a great peanut butter mug cake and pumpkin spice mug cake using almond flour. To avoid the eggy taste and texture a mug cake makes you need multiple different ingredients with each. For example in a almond flour mug cake the need for xanthan gum isn’t needed at all.
