Recipe type: Cake
Serves: 1-2
  • 1 large microwave safe coffee mug
  • 4 tablespoons gluten-free S R flour mix (homemade or a bought brand – White wings, Macro)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut palm sugar Available here or in most good health food shops
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla almond milk, or coconut milk or rice milk, (cows milk or goats milk if you are not dairy free)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil Available here or in most good health food shops
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional add-ins: pinch ground coffee, dark chocolate chips, coconut flakes
  1. Grease a coffee mug with oil or butter. Place all ingredients in mug and mix with fork to combine ingredients, but don’t over-mix. Microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds. The cake might look like it is overflowing from mug, but it will settle. Cooking time depends on microwave strength, but the standard is 1 minute and 30 seconds; with 3 minutes being on the higher end. Final product should be moist.
Note: If using a homemade flour blend, make sure the blend contains baking powder and salt. If you prefer to use the oven then this recipe still works well. Cook on 180 degrees C for 10 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. Make sure you grease the mug well.
