What is up my favorite people — this is an interesting week don’t you think? It’s not like it’s the week of Christmas or Thanksgiving where we can woohoo lots of FOOD and ohh maybe a present or two and oooohhhhh more Food!

No, it’s Valentines Day. The only reason I fully support Valentines Day is because it normally includes chocolate, and lots of it. As a not so surprising confession, I’m really not the red hearts and pink accents kind of Valentines Day girl. I’m more eat way to much Sushi and watch Enders Game kind of Valentines Day girl {it’s ok to be jealous of my plans on Friday}.

But because Valentines Day is literally around the corner and I was going to post a Mug Cake recipe soon — I figured what the heck, I’ll hook you guys up with something for your sweetheart or just for you.

Mug cakes are new to me — this isn’t something I’ve been making for years and years, it’s literally been two weeks. And my first reaction? How have I LIVED without these little suckers! They’re fool proof, single serving, chocolatley cups of omgyummy. I kid you not — Mr. POAB who as we all know isn’t a dessert lover, actually likes these and was quoted saying “they taste like cake”.

And in the words of one of my friends — Boom Roasted. Exactly.

Now if you’re making these for your hunny on Friday — fear not, you can’t mess this up, this won’t mess up your kitchen and you’re going to be a hero for thinking of a dessert that can be made at a moments notice. Heck if you want get fancy with it and pop it on a plate, then you’ll get the melty chocolate on the bottom to drizzle over the rest of it and now you like a pro.

Just make sure the mug-of-choice is microwave safe and dishwasher safe {because trust me — these make the cup not to fun to clean — sorry!}.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Almond Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Chocolate Chips {I used the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips — they’re gluten, soy + dairy free}
  • 2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. Vanilla
Instructions
  1. Crack your egg into your mug and use a fork to beat it up
  2. Add the rest of your ingredients into your mug and beat it up all together well.
  3. Microwave for around a 1½ minutes. {Go for a minute first and the check it and give it another 30 seconds}

For Mug size? When I use my normal coffee cup these filled it about half way — the cup I used in the photo is a little “cappuccino” mug I snagged at Target for $1.25 on clearance {in the words of Gus from Psych “You know that’s right”}.

Oh and make yourself one of these tonight — cause you totally deserve it!

    If mug cakes are new to you, then you’ve been missing out on something delicious and simple. Question: Should there really be a whole tablespoon of vanilla in this tiny mug cake recipe? That seems like a *lot* of vanilla, is that right or should it be one teaspoon? I just made it with a 1 tsp and it tastes fantastic!

    Here’s one of my all time favorite paleo mug cake recipes – Moist Chocolate Cake. It has a few more incredients than this one, but it’s absolutely amazing.

    Thanks for sharing this!

      Heyy Brian!
      Hahah I actually do use a whole Tablespoon in mine but I’m vanilla obsessed so it works for me! But less always works too :)

    Oh how I have been missing these little mug cakes since going Paleo!!!! Thank you, Liz, for giving me back my bedtime dessert!! I kinda agree with Brian’s take on the vanilla…a little much for me. Didn’t have any chocolate chips so I threw in a spoonful of cocoa powder and some shredded unsweetened coconut and it was wonderful! Next is going to be a lemon flavored one!

    Again, thanks Liz for these fab recipes!!!!!

    Wow this is the only successful mug cake I’ve ever made (paleo and non-paleo). I added some coconut oil and omitted the chocolate chips but now wish i had added them haha. Thanks!!!!

    I’m actually sitting on the couch right now eating my mug cake. This is literally the only mug cake i ever made that worked! I only used 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tb of chocolate chips then added little bit of shredded coconut to it. It came out amazing. Thank you so much! Soo good
