Cake for One

Ever have cravings for dessert but have nothing on hand.  Out of chocolate, no more icecream, even short on nut butter, which usually hits that sweet spot?  Ugh it is the worst!

I recently discovered the most amazing quick treat for one.  The infamous Mug Cake.  If you haven't tried it, you MUST give it a shot.  A quick cake for one that is ready in minutes.

 

Okay, so that isn't my version, I took it from another blog.  Forgive me for stealing.  And also for the crappy picture below - I scooped mine out of the mug and into a bowl to cool.  I know it looks gross, but please believe me that it was insanely delish.  This is a pumpkin mug cake with chocolate chips.

Pumpkin Chocolate Mug Cake:
2-3 tablespoons flour
2-3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
sweatener of choice (I used 2 packs of vanilla stevia)
chocolate chips
1 egg white
1/4 cup of almond milk
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg

Stir it together in a mug and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.

To. Die. For. 

This recipe was adapted from Running with Spoons' Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Mug Cake

I topped my mug cake with a scoop of vanilla coconut Greek yogurt.  Definitely hit the spot. 

Check out these other mug cake recipes, and get creative with ingredients of your own!

Here is another reminder of how they are supposed to look in case you were scarred and disgusted by my version.
