Keto Chocolate Mug Cake

A mug of chocolatey goodness made in the microwave, in minutes

A keto mug cake for Valentine’s day – chocolate, of course – you can whip up in a jiffy in the microwave. This low carb dessert comes together in under two minutes and uses no fancy ingredients or equipment. It’s perfect for sharing, especially now Valentine’s Day is around the corner and, trust me, there isn’t an easier way to impress your loved ones.

Made to share

Don’t worry if the carbs look like a lot. The cake is pretty heavy so you’re not going to be eating all of it in one sitting. That’s why it’s important to share! Anyway if almond flour isn’t your thing then I’ve got a delicious recipe for a microwave cake using coconut flour.

    …Wow! I just made this cake to kill my sweet tooth craving. I feel like I am cheating on the keto diet. It is so sinfully delicious. Honestly, there is no need to ever go back my old way of eating. Thank you for sharing this recipe. You saved my keto lifestyle!

          It’s 170C/340F if you want to bake this. Also just type 170 C to F in your browser to get an instant conversion in google 🙂

      I will be able to do that soon but right now 55% of my traffic is from the USA and only 10% from India so got to cater to the biggest player. I will soon enough have something that directs people to the appropriate product in their own country.

      Depends on what size cake tin you use but i think 3 times should suffice, or maybe 4 and yes it will last for a week in the fridge.

    What constitutes stevia “to taste” for someone who’s never tasted it before, please?

      Basically taste the batter, once it starts tasting ‘sweet’ enough then that’s ‘to taste’

      If you scroll down to the recipe, at the end of the ingredients there’s a little converter that converts from Imperial to US 🙂

      Eating 1 egg over your protein allowance for the day will do NOTHING to you.
