This keto coconut flour mug cake is the most delicious keto vanilla mug cake with only 4.9g net carb per serve. Plus, it makes a lovely single-serve keto birthday cake if you use my keto coconut frosting. Also, the recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and therefore suitable for anyone on a paleo diet too!
We all crave birthday cakes at some point, whether it’s your birthday or not, that craving must be fixed right? As always I’m here to tell you that this is ok to have birthday cake on a keto diet. Of course, you need to use the right ingredients to keep things very low-carb and high-fat but keep reading and I will guide you through this in a sec!
Coconut flour is one of the lowest flour in carbs. Therefore it’s the perfect choice to make keto cakes or bread. It is also a high fiber flour, meaning it absorbs liquid very quickly and that is why you need to measure your flour with precision to ensure a moist keto vanilla mug cake. Let’s see what you need to make this lovely treat:
A keto mug cake is generally baked in the microwave between 60 seconds to 90 seconds. As I divided this recipe in half, I cooked this recipe in 2 separate mugs to assemble a birthday layer cake. Consequently, I only microwaved each mug cake for 60 seconds. The reason why I decreased time is to keep the cake moist and soft. If you intend to microwave the whole batch all at once you can microwave it for 9o seconds. Of course, some of you may not have a microwave and that’s ok. You can bake mug cakes in greased ovenproof ramekins for 8-12 minutes at 180 C (350F). You know the mug cake is ready when the batter is set but still moist.
The best way to create a single-serve keto birthday cake with a mug cake recipe is to bake 2 similar cake layers and assemble them with keto frosting. My favorite keto frosting is dairy-free, made of unsweetened coconut yogurt, unsweetened desiccated coconut, powdered erythritol, and stevia drops. Actually, pure coconut yogurt is the best keto yogurt you can eat! It has no sugar, no dairy meaning no lactose sugar. It’s made of 100% coconut cream and probiotic that is all. I recommend you check the ingredients list of your yogurt before buying as some brands add starch or sugar!
I love low carb mug cakes for breakfast or as a quick sweet craving fix in the afternoon. I created a range of delicious keto mug cakes for you to try. Also, if you don’t like coconut flour you can try my almond flour mug cake recipe instead
