Keto Chocolate Mug Cake

4.8 from 5 reviews

This Keto Chocolate Mug Cake is made with coconut flour and cocoa powder for a satisfying piece of cake you can make instantly. It takes 5 minutes and is keto, gluten-free, and Paleo-friendly. 



  1. First, start by taking a dab of coconut oil or olive oil and coating the inside of a microwave-safe mug.
  2. In a small bowl, add all of the ingredients.
  3. Whisk together the batter until combined. It’s ok if the eggs have made some of the coconut oil hard.
  4. Pour the batter into the coffee mug. Use a spoon to level the batter, so it is smooth.
  5. Place the unbaked mug cake into the microwave and microwave for 2 ½ minutes. Then check on the mug cake and continue baking in 30-second intervals until baked. It took 3 minutes in my microwave.
  6. Once baked, eat right away or top with frosting. 


Note: The coffee mug will be hot when finished baking, so I recommend using oven mitts to remove it from the microwave. Since this mug cake has a lot of erythritol I suggest consuming it while the cake is warm. Once it is cool the erythritol crystallizes and makes the texture of the cake feel hard.
