How to Make a Keto Mug Cake with Chocolate Chips {Quick Overview}

This is just a quick overview of how to make this low carb mug cake. For the recipe in detail, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.

Melt butter in a microwave-safe mug or ramekin. Then add the heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and egg. Whisk until the egg is well incorporated.

In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients except chocolate chips.

TIPS:

  • For a more cookie-like texture, omit the baking powder. Omitting it will make the resulting dessert less “fluffy.”
  • For a slightly different flavor, you can use a combination of Swerve Confectioners and Swerve Brown. Use the same total amount (1 tbsp), but experiment with different combos, like 2 tsp Swerve Confectioners + 1 tsp Swerve Brown.

Then, add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Because of the coconut flour, the mixture will be quite thick.

TIP: For a fun presentation, make sure you sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top!

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a microwave-safe mug or ramekin. Then add heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and the egg. Whisk until yolk is incorporated and mixture is well-combined.

  • Add dry ingredients to the mug (or ramekin), then mix thoroughly until well-combined.
  • Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  • Place in the microwave for 50 to 90 seconds on high, being careful not to overcook. Check at 50 seconds and again at 10-15 second increments to ensure you remove it at the right time.
  • When finished, put a fork in the mug cake and carefully lift it up and flip it over. If the bottom isn’t fully cooked yet (this will depend on your microwave), cook it for another few seconds.
