Low Carb Birthday Mug Cake



Hey Loves!

Here is a quick low carb recipe for a birthday cake in a mug! You know this is delicious when your husband who doesn't have a huge sweet tooth eats the entire thing. This took 3 minutes to cook and is just absolutely decadent to eat. Since I've been eating a low carb diet, I do miss my occasional Starbucks birthday cake pop indulgence. This definitely takes that edge off. So lets get started.

List of Ingredients:

Almond Flour -  6 Tablespoons
Egg - 1
Liquid Stevia Sweetener -  5 Drops
Vanilla - 1/4 Teaspoon
Butter - 1 Tablespoon, softened
Baking Powder - 1/4 Teaspoon
Half and Half - 1 Tablespoon
Almond Milk - 1 Teaspoon
Rainbow Sprinkles - 1 Tablespoon ( You can go as much or a little as you prefer)
Pinch of Salt

Frosting Ingredient list:

Cream Cheese - 1/3 of a cup, softened
Butter - 2 Tablespoon, softened
Truvia Baking Mix - 1 Tablespoon

Mug Amazing!

First thing to do is to mix everything together in the mug of your choice. Use a whisk to get it all together, minus the rainbow sprinkles, unless you want them in the mixture that is. Once you get everything mixed completely, go ahead and set it aside while we make the frosting!

The frosting is equally simple. Just toss the ingredients into your stand mixer if you have one. If so, use the whisk attachment and set it to medium speed to thoroughly mix everything. Don't let it go too high or you could send some of your frosting flying out. You'll know the frosting is ready when all of the sugar and butter have been folded into the cream cheese and it's a nice and somewhat light consistency.

Now that that's done, go ahead and pop your mug of batter into the microwave for about 3 minutes. It should be pretty much right on at that time but I would stop it about 15 seconds before hand if your microwave is high powered, and stick a wooden toothpick into the center to see if it's done. If the batter is cooked, the toothpick will come out clean. If not, it will be coated in uncooked batter.

When the batter is cooked through, pull it out, let it cool for a couple minutes and dollop some of the frosting on it. The reason we let the cake cool first is so that the frosting doesn't just outright melt when you put it on. Once you get the frosting on the cake, sprinkle some of the rainbow goodies on top and presto! You are finished!

I hope you enjoy this little recipe for a slightly guilt-less birthday cake. Please leave a comment and share this with your friends so we can all cure our sweet tooths. Teeth. Tooth. However you say it. Hope you like it!
