  • Beat eggs in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add melted coconut oil and beaten eggs to the almond flour mixture, whisking everything together with a fork.

  • Lightly grease 2 microwave-safe mugs. Pour batter into mugs, leaving at least 1 inch of empty space at the top so the cakes can rise.

  • Microwave on high power for 1 minute. Test cakes for doneness. Continue cooking in 10 second-intervals, if necessary, until cakes are cooked through and not runny in the middle.

This recipe is a must try! I absolutely could not believe how easy this was to make! I decided to try it as a fast and easy desert. I followed the recipe to the detail to see what the untampered cake would taste like. Perfection! My next batch I will add a few chocolate chips to the mix powdered sugar and a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the finished product. Read More

YUMMY! followed the recipe to the T! Started a KETO diet and this is my first sweet treat. I used Steveia sweetner. Can't believe how easy it was. It makes 2 small portions- we both wanted more! Next time I will double the recipe for 2 of us! Read More

I love the concept and the ingredients are great. However the taste was terribly bitter. It needs much more sweetener than the recipe calls for. I'll make it again with adjustments. I should have noticed the proportion of cocoa powder to sweetener when I made it. That one change will make this mug cake so much better maybe a four or five star recipe. Read More

I didn’t like it at all. It was dry. I didn’t like the texture nor the flavor. The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because my husband liked it. I think that next time I will use butter instead of coconut oil. And I will definitively add more sweetener. Read More
