gluten & sugar free mug cake.

Everyone seems to be making mug cakes these days. I really never paid much attention since they seem to involve things like gluten and sugar and other bad things.

On a whim and after about two seconds of thought I threw some things into a mug and had myself a yummy mug cake!


A lump of butter. Possibly two tablespoons (I make my own butter and I typically don't measure things so...)
Three tablespoons of oat flour
Two teaspoons of baking cocoa
One teaspoon of maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon of honey

Melt the butter in the mug you're using. Add each ingredient above while stirring with a fork.
Microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds.

It didn't rise too much but it's dense and rich so it was just enough. :)
It bubbled and was still bubbling when I took it out. That left it with a neat honeycomb pattern on top.

Enjoy! :)


  1. I love super easy recipes like this. I make oatmeal "cakes" in the microwave pretty much every day, and mix random things in or put yogurt on top. I love it.

  2. I just made an oatmeal muffin in a mug today. It was decent but not perfect. Next time I need to change a few things. I followed a recipe and it's just not my taste!
