Are you ready to give this dreamy gluten free chocolate microwave cake recipe a try?
Add your dry ingredients to a bowl. I prefer to mix my mug cake batter outside of the mug because often dry bits of flour get stuck in the bottom of the mug.
Add the wet ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
This is what your chocolate cake batter will look like.
Pour the gluten free chocolate cake batter into a large mug. Microwave your cake for 90 seconds and enjoy!
I wanted to give you a few tips, so you end up with a delicious and moist gluten free chocolate mug cake every time. Take a look at these tips:
- Because this is a mug cake for two, you will need to use a larger sized mug. Plus, it will help the cake cook more evenly.
- Use the exact measurements for the ingredients. Otherwise, you may end up with a really dense or dry cake.
- Don’t over stir the batter. Make sure to stir it until it’s just combined or you will end up with air bubbles which leads to a dry microwave mug cake.
Can I reheat mug cake?
Yes, you can reheat this microwave chocolate mug cake. Simply microwave the mug cake for 10-15 seconds and it should be hot and the chocolate will melt again. Bear in mind, that when you reheat the mug cake, it may become slightly dry compared to when you first ate it.
Are mug cakes actually good?
Yes, this gluten free chocolate mug cake recipe is actually pretty amazing. I’m not just saying that because it’s my recipe. What you get when you make a microwave cake in a cup is a sweet dessert that you can throw together in a couple of minutes.
Then you only zap in the microwave for a minute or two and it’s ready to serve. The texture is fantastic and the flavor is even better. Don’t take my word for it, give it a try!
