Nothing hits you like a Chocolate Cake craving, but when you’re eating low carb, what do you do??

You make a super easy super quick 1 min microwave Chocolate Mug Cake which is just 3 gms net carbs per serving and you can also portion control. Sounds like a win?? Yes, coz it sure is!

Made this decadent Chocolate Mug Cake in 1 min, added a wee bit of coffee (coz, why not?) and topped it with a Dark Chocolate Ganache, garnished with Fresh Peaches and mint.. Mmmmmm Divine

Now, you can have your cake and eat it too, guilt free! Let’s get going

Makes 1 mug or 2 ramekin cakes

You’ll need:

Dry Ingredients:

2 tbsp Almond Flour

2 tsp Coconut Flour -teaspoon

2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp low carb sweetener – I use Erythritol

1/2 tsp coffee – optional

Wet Ingredients:

2 tbsp melted butter

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract


In a mug, mix all the dry ingredients with the help of a fork

Now in another bowl mix the wet ingredients, butter, egg and vanilla extract

Pour the wet ingredients to the mug that has dry ingredients and mix well until combined

Let sit for 2-3 mins and then microwave for 60 secs/1 min

Dark chocolate Ganache- Optional but recommended

In a microwaveable bowl, add 1 square of Lindt dark chocolate (break into small pieces) and 1 tbsp heavy cream. Microwave for 30-35 secs and mix well together

Pour over your mug cake and garnish with choice of fruits
