Mug cakes are great because they are quick to make and you only need a small amount of each ingredient. In these days of social distancing people aren't inviting a group around for afternoon tea and so a regular size cake doesn't all get eaten before it goes stale if there is only one person in the house. Or it does and then there is that guilty feeling.

Coconut flour is gluten free so this mug cake should be okay for those who are gluten intolerant, just check that all the other ingredients are gluten free.

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • ¼ teaspoon bi carb soda (baking soda)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon white chocolate chips

  • Notes-
  • White or raw sugar can be used
  • Use either smooth or crunchy peanut paste. I like the crunchy texture of crunchy peanut paste myself.
  • If you want more chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons will make your mug cake even yummier
  • Use brown chocolate chips if you prefer

  • Method
  • Sift the coconut flour, cocoa and bi carb soda into a small bowl
  • Add the sugar
  • Mix in the peanut paste and beaten egg
  • Mix in milk and vanilla essence
  • Stir in the chocolate chips

  • Pour mixture into a greased 350ml mug, using a spatula to scrape out the bowl
  • The mug will be about half full but the cake will rise a lot so you need a large mug

  • Make sure your mug is big enough for the cake to rise without overflowing ImageMarie Vonow

  • Microwave on high for one minute
  • Check and cook for an extra 30 seconds or however long you think it will take to finish cooking
  • Eat from the mug and enjoy every mouthful

  • Notes
  • Microwaves vary so do check after cooking for one minute to see how much longer it needs.
  • Check that the mug you use is microwave safe.
  • Don't use a small mug because the cake will overflow.
