This Gluten-Free Mug Cake is rich and chocolatey without any grains or dairy. A decadent chocolate mug cake that is ready in under two minutes.
Lightly spray the inside of the mug with olive oil. Pro tip: if you prefer to use butter or ghee, add a sliver to the mug and microwave for 15 seconds. Swirl around the bottom and sides.
Add the ingredients in this order:
-Vanilla and almond extracts
Mix ingredients really well with a fork, scraping down the sides (the cocoa powder will get on the sides).
If you are adding a square of chocolate, drop it into the center now.
Microwave for 40 seconds. Allow it to cool for a minute and then enjoy!
Nutrition values are without the optional square of dark chocolate.
You'll want a mug that is 12 oz or bigger since the mug cake will rise as it is cooking (and then sink back down a bit).
If you don't have a microwave, you can bake this gooey chocolate mug cake in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-25 minutes.
