About this recipe: This is my favourite mug cake recipe that has no gluten and no added sugar. It's a quick dessert that will satisfy any sugar or chocolate craving! Espresso or strong coffee can be used in place of coffee essence.
Looking for a sweet treat, I decided to try this mug cake to change things up from the other recipe I normally use. This was very good and quick! The only changes I made were to use coconut oil instead of olive oil (I find the olive oil flavor too strong for cakes) and I used vanilla extract instead of coffee extract. This rose beautifully and I enjoyed the light texture. Also, unlike the other mug cake I make, this one pulled away from the sides nicely and could have easily been turned onto a plate. No sticking! And no time for a pic either! Thanks for sharing your recipe DenaMarie! - 22 Jan 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I didn't have any eggs so I used liquid egg whites and it turned out amazing!! This is the best cake I've ever tasted paleo or not! I'll definitely be making it again!! - 14 Nov 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I followed the recipe as written. If you're used to eating paleo this is a great quick treat! - 18 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
