Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake
  • 4 tablespoons gluten free flour blend
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • pinch of salt (a grind or 2 of sea salt works beautifully)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  1. Prepare 2 microwave safe coffee mugs with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl mix gluten free flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt.
  3. Next stir in wet ingredients: egg, oil, milk and vanilla. Mix well.
  4. Divide batter evenly between 2 prepared coffee cups. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  5. Place cups into microwave oven, one at a time. Microwave each cup on medium for 1 minute. Then for a second minute on medium. Splitting the cook time helps prevent the cake from overflowing. If cakes are not done after 2 minutes cook for 30 second increments until the cake is done.
  6. Cool cake for about 2-3 minutes before serving.
  7. * When serving sprinkle with confectioners sugar if desired. *
