Chocolate cake in a mug recipe 

The mug cake  is a popular recipe that was blown over IN America. It is a cake that you can prepare in the microwave within a few minutes. The mug cake owes its popularity to the fact that you prepare it easily and quickly. In addition, it is easy to portion and you have little washing up. I came across the mug cake for the first time in the supermarket. I was very curious and therefore had a bag from Dr. to test. Bought Oetker. The cake was ready within two minutes and it tasted super good. The only drawback of the Dr. Oetker mug cake is the large amount of carbohydrates.

Low carbohydrate version:

I liked the idea for the site and started experimenting with a low-carb version of the mug cake. I have replaced the wheat flour with almond flour and coconut flour and the sugar with Stevia crystal. The first attempt was not entirely satisfactory. I had used too much flour and not enough butter. After a minor adjustment, this problem was resolved and the result was a delicious creamy chocolate cake. To test whether the cake came close to that of Dr. Oetker I had a friend taste both cakes. He did not know which cake was sugar-free and indicated after tasting that he liked the low-carb version. According to him, the low-carb chocolate cake in a mug had a better chocolate taste. A success!


- Almond Flour
- Coconut Flour
- Extra dark chocolate

Preparation tips:

I have prepared the chocolate cake in a mug in this recipe in the microwave. If you prefer not to use a microwave, you can also prepare it in the oven. Then pour the mixture into a heat-resistant bowl or mug and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes. I hope you like the recipe.
