Vanilla Coconut Flour Mug Cake & Chocolate Peanut butter Ganache

Cake in a cup

Just realized on every almond flour recipe people ask me if they can make it with coconut flour and vice versa. So this recipe was inevitable. I made a delicious Keto chocolate mug cake using almond flour and of course, the first comment was ‘can I make this with coconut flour’. So this had to be done, I devised a recipe for a mug cake with coconut flour. Now you have the option of a mug cake with coconut flour as well. Hope you enjoy the recipe.

What’s on top?

For this recipe I chose to make a chocolate and peanut butter ganache as I felt it would pair well with the vanilla flavoured cake. You could also add cocoa powder to the cake itself to give it a chocolate flavour and skip the ganache, but why would you? If you aren’t a chocolate fan (is that even possible?) then you can always try a cream cheese or mascarpone frosting to go with the cake. And if your middle name is lazy, then just pour over some sweetened heavy cream or whipped cream.

    I baked mine at 350 F for about 15 minutes. Ended up trading out 2 tsp of the coconut flour for cocoa powder to make a chocolate cake, and it was deeelicious! The texture is fantastic – fluffy, soft, with just the right bite to it – and it’s super filling, too.

    So would you put 2 tbs cocoa powder!? Instead of flour? Seems like a lot. But it works?

      No why would you do that? Coconut flour and coco powder are 2 different things. You can add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder if you want to turn it into a chocolate cake but you need that coconut flour.

      No you can’t replace the flour in the cake with cocoa powder, they are 2 different things.

    If I don’t have coconut milk can I use heavy whipping cream or 1/2 and 1/2?

    Any way to substitute the egg in this recipe? Maybe yoghurt or a flax egg or anything else you suggest?
