TREATS IN A MUG IN SECONDS

on

Sometimes I crave a treat but don’t want to make a large cake, I’d eat it all too quickly. So to curb my cravings and not to be so greedy I’ve got into making mug cakes. Equivalent of one slice and I can’t have more plus only take minutes to make so its a quick fix. All recipes are for one servings except the espresso cake which is for 2.

MAPLE AND PECAN MUG CAKE

1 tbsp coconut flour

1/2 tbspErythritol granulated

1/2 tsp baking powder

2-3 pecan nuts, chopped

1/2-3/4 tbsp ground seed mix

2 tbsp Olive Oil or melted coconut oil or melted butter

1 large egg

5-8 drops liquid Stevia

1 tbsp sugar free maple syrup or a few drops of maple flavouring

Serve this with a little more Sugar-free maple syrup drizzled over the top and a little more of the chopped pecans plus of course some cream.

Or heat 2tbsp Sugar-free maple syrup in a small pan and heat until just before boiling add 3 tbsp double/heavy cream and simmer until thickening. Allow to cool slightly and pour.

CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

1 tbsp coconut flour

1/2 tbspErythritol granulated

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2-3/4 tbsp ground seed mix

2 tbsp Olive Oil or melted coconut oil or melted butter

1 large egg

5-8 drops liquid Stevia

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

I topped this with a runny chocolate ganache (recipe below)

VANILLA MUG CAKE

1 tbsp coconut flour

1/2 tbspErythritol granulated

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2-3/4 tbsp ground seed mix

2 tbsp Olive Oil or melted coconut oil or melted butter

1 large egg

5-8 drops liquid Stevia

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

When cooked I topthis with either Sugar Free Strawberry Jam or Blueberry Jamor Zesty Lemon Curd

Which, with the jam, made it like a jam steam pudding like my mum used to make.
