Mug Cakes

If you’re like me you suddenly feel the need for a dessert, you want it now and there is nothing made. On the flip side, if there was always cake in the house, you’d always be eating it. The answer is mug cakes, quick, easy and the perfect size.

I have found that most people who don’t like mug cakes or keto desserts in general, don’t like the sweetener they are using. I prefer Pyure or Truvia (not baking blends as they have sugar or maltodextrin)

Pure Stevia is bitter and pure Erythritol has a “cooling” effect…but when they are blended, the effects are eliminated.
