If you have never had a mug cake before, you may be skeptical of the idea of cake made in the  microwave. I know, I was. Still, give them a try. 

You will just fall in love with these warm, fluffy bites of cake spooned right out of a mug. The texture is pleasantly moist and pretty much just melts in your mouth! 

Also, they are just so quick and easy. Nothing beats enjoying warm cake, from scratch, in less than 5 minutes. I usually am done putting away all ingredients and wiping the counter before the microwave beeps! 

Here are some tips to make your Coconut Flour Mug Cakes a success:
  • Although you could prepare the batter right in the mug, to ensure even mixing, stir everything very well in a small bowl and then transfer to your mug.
  • Using a straight-sided mug ensures the cake is cooked evenly. It should fit at least 12 fl.oz. (Or divide the batter into small tea cups for several small desserts.)
  • Microwaves differ. These recipes all take about 2.5 minutes on high, but check at 2 minutes until you figure out your microwave's sweet spot.
  • Let the mug cakes cool for a couple minutes before you dig in. But you do want to enjoy them warm.
  • Top the cakes to your hearts desire with whipped (coconut) cream, chocolate chips, nuts etc.
