Check out this delicious, fast and easy recipe – WTF? book’s Mighty Mug Cake! Made with mixed berries and served with creamy unsweetened yoghurt, it is sure to be a hit this weekend!
Prep time:10 minutes
Cooking time: 2 minutes (including melting butter)
Carb count: 5.8g
- 3 tbsp + 1 tsp (50g) Butter (plus a little for greasing the mugs)
- ⅔ cup (50g) Almond Meal (plus a little for dusting the mugs)
- ½ cup (75g) Mixed berries
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tbsp (30g) Xylitol
- 1 Tsp (2g) psyllium
- 1 tsp (4g) Chia
- 1 tsp (5g) baking powder
- ½ tsp (2ml) vanilla extract
Rub some butter inside the lining of your mugs then dust with a little almond meal – this creates a coating to help prevent the cake sticking. Gently melt the butter and the berries in the microwave until the butter is slightly melted and the berries are soft. Reserve a couple of berries for serving and mash the remainder with a fork. Crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl, whisk them with a fork then add the berries, butter and the remainder of the cake ingredients.
Mix everything together well and spoon the cake mix into the mugs before cooking in the microwave for about 1 minute (mine took 1 minute 15 seconds in an 800w microwave). Once the mug cakes are cooked allow them to cool slightly, then turn out onto plates, you can garnish them with some whipped cream or full fat unsweetened yoghurt (I like the Greek stuff) and serve with the leftover berries. Or alternatively, eat straight from the mug!
