Keto Chocolate Mug Cake | Keto Recipes | Headbanger’s Kitchen
Horns up and welcome to a brand new
episode of Headbanger’s Kitchen. Now my
lips have fully healed and it’s just in time for
Valentine’s Day. Normally, I don’t care
about things like this, but I know a lot of
people in the world do, so I thought to
myself today let’s make a delicious
Keto Valentine’s dessert, something you
can share with your loved ones. So we’re
making a delicious Keto chocolate
Though I’m going to make it a ramekin, just
for that special effect, but you can eat
this on your own if you’re single, or you
can just eat it with your loved ones,
It’s completely up to you. So let’s go and make
this delicious decadent Keto chocolate mug cake,
in the microwave – not actually – in the
mug in the ramekin for effect.
So to make this this cake we’re going to mix in our dry
ingredients, which is 25 grams of almonds
almond flour, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder,
a pinch of salt.
Next, we add in our wet ingredients –
a tablespoon of coconut oil or melted
butter, if you prefer, 1 tablespoon of cream,
a few drops of Stevia to taste or the powdered Stevia,
A few drops of vanilla extract and one egg.
Now we’re going to give this all a
good whisk together and get it ready.
Then all you’ve got to do is pour this into your mug,
or your ramekin,
like I’m using, and put it in the microwave
for 1 whole minute. Now, if you want a slightly
cakey texture you can put it for about
10-15 seconds more but we want the
centre to be gooey, if possible.
Okay, so the microwave mug cake is ready but we’re
not stopping here, we want to take this to the
next level so I’m going to top
this with some delicious chocolate ganache.
So I’m going to chop up one square of
Lindt chocolate, and put that with some
butter, about 10 grams. Melt that in the
microwave for 30 seconds
mix it all together. Add a tablespoon of
Oh and add Stevia to taste. Mix that all
together and my chocolate ganache is
ready for the mug cake.
Now all you’ve got to
do is garnish the cake with it and
That’s it, our microwave mug cake is ready
and that looks dee-licious!
Okay so it’s time for me to dig in to this cake, this
delicious mug cake that I’ve not made in a
this is what we call happiness
Okay, so for me the ganache plus the cake really
makes it. That is the combination that
works. I will say one thing though, if
you do cook your cake in the ramekin like I do,
and you want it slightly gooey, cook it for
less than a minute because mine is
cooked all the way through; it’s not gooey, but
I’ve got a more cake like consistency, so I
prefer that, I think. I mean, look at it
it’s just a delicious, gooey chocolate on top of a
delicious cake but yeah, if you cook in
the mug I think one minute should be
sufficient for a nice gooey cake.
But this is delicious and the strawberry
is just for effect, I’ll eat it another day –
too many carbs in one day. As always, I’ve put
the macros in the video description, that’s
