So let’s talk about that mug cake up there. Admittedly, I’m having a hard time typing about it because I keep staring at that photo and thinking, “I really should go into the kitchen and make another one RIGHT NOW…”

Friends, this keto mug cake tastes like a pancake. (Especially when served cut in half — I’ll share photos of that version soon.) It’s happiness in a mug. And it’s so easy to make! This keto Pancake Mug Cake is literally going to have you bouncing out of bed in the morning with a smile on your face, knowing that you’re just a few minutes away from a ridiculously good low carb pancake.

You need just a few keto staples to make it and a few minutes of your time. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

Ingredients Needed for a Keto Pancake Mug Cake

Coconut Flour

I’ve tried several coconut flour brands, and TerraSoul is my favorite so far. Their coconut flour is light and fresh.

Swerve Confectioners Sweetener

Swerve Confectioners is an all-natural sweetener that looks, tastes, and measures just like real confectioners sugar! Because sugar alcohols do not count toward net carbs, it contains 0g net carbs.

Lakanto Maple-Flavored Syrup

No pancake is complete without maple syrup! This stuff is divine and tastes so much like the real thing.

Other ingredients:

  • Butter
  • Baking powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Medium egg (you can use a large egg, but it will be a bit “eggy” if you do)

How to Make a Keto Pancake Mug Cake

Here’s what you do…

Step #1: To start, melt butter in a microwave-safe mug. Then add vanilla extract and a medium egg. Beat the egg with a fork until the yolk and white are blended.

Step #2: In a small bowl, combine coconut flour, Swerve, and baking powder. (I don’t bother sifting my coconut flour, but feel free to do so.) Mix thoroughly to combine.

Step #3: Add dry ingredients to the mug, then mix thoroughly until well-combined.

Step #4: Place the mug in the microwave for one minute on high.

Step #5: 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.

How to Top Your Keto Pancake Mug Cake

For the best pancake experience 😁, I highly recommend topping your mug cake with:

  • Butter
  • Lakanto Maple-Flavored Syrup
  • Swerve Confectioners

How to Serve Your Keto Pancake Mug Cake

There are three main ways to serve your low carb “pancake”:

  • In the mug. This is the most convenient option for an on-the-go breakfast!
  • On a plate in its full shape. Pop it onto a plate, top it, and you’re good to go.
  • On a plate cut in half. In my opinion, this is the BEST way to serve your pancake mug cake! This allows the toppings to soak in and give you a divine pancake experience.
