Rather than go through the trouble of making a cake or pan of muffins, make one single portion right in your microwave, toaster oven, or oven. It’s a wonderful way to control portions. Due to my citrus allergy, my husband doesn’t get lemon desserts very often. Making him a mug cake was the perfect solution. He thoroughly enjoyed this gluten free lemon mug cake. You can add poppy seeds or berries if desired. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Lemon Mug Cake with Lemon Glaze (Egg-Free)”

While I have a few gluten free cake mug recipes, I had not yet developed a muffin in a mug recipe yet. Wanting a bit healthier version of the cake mug recipe, I decided to add a bit of flax seed meal to the cake recipe and add some blueberries. To make a cake version, substitute the 1 tablespoon of flax seed meal for 1 tablespoon additional flour. This gluten free blueberry mug cake makes a fast snack/dessert!

Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake (Sugar-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free)

I’m under deadline on another project but wanted to squeeze in a recent recipe request for a healthier gluten-free mug cake. I chose chocolate this time, as I already have a recipe for a regular Gluten Free Coffee Mug Cake (actual coffee cake). I love coffee mug cake, as they are so easy to make! To make it healthier by using xylitol which is sugar-free, and dairy-free by allowing you to choose the variety of milk. I hope this helps more than just the person who requested it, as it is delicious. I am thinking of substituting some of the all-purpose flour for a little almond flour next time. If you try this idea before I do, please let us all know how it turns out. If you’d like, you can even add some natural peanut butter, or other nut butter, to the top/middle of the batter for a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup flavor. I took one bite while it was fresh out the microwave, and couldn’t stop myself…and it was pretty much guilt-free! Continue reading “Gluten Free Chocolate Mug Cake (Sugar-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free)”

One of my Twitter followers recently asked me for a gluten-free coffee mug cake recipe. I had never heard of a such a thing! So, curiosity got the best of best of me, and I had to get right on it. After a little research, I discovered that most recipes are actually a coffee cake though you can make other cake recipes in a mug. I thought how great for those that are the only ones in their household that are gluten free to have their very own personal gluten free coffee cake, in minutes!
