Toppings that are delicious and keto-approved for this recipe are:
If you don’t have a microwave, you can bake this chocolate chip mug cake in your regular oven.
However, as mentioned before, the cake won’t rise as much, and it takes longer to bake through.
I recommend using a 5-inch oven baking pan or any ceramic ramekin that is oven-friendly. Grease mold with coconut oil and fill following the assembling tips above.
Bake at 350°F (180°C) until the cake is set and a pick inserted in the center of the snickerdoodle cake comes out clean. It can take 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the diameter of your mold. The wider, the faster it cakes, but the less it rises!
You can make ahead your mug cake batter and store it in an airtight container in the fridge overnight.
Or place the batter in your coffee mug, wrap the top with plastic wrap to prevent the batter from drying out, and refrigerate overnight. The next day, microwave for a sweet quick keto breakfast.
Note that you can’t prebake a mug cake and store it for the next day. The texture of microwaved baked cakes dries out very fast, resulting in a dry, hard cake after a few hours.
Consequently, always microwave mug cakes before serving and enjoy hot or lukewarm, within 30 minutes of baking.
I love to make low-carb mug cake when a cake craving comes up. Below are my others favorites for you to try.
