  • 1/4 cup gluten free flour blend
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • tiny dash salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond milk


  • In a small bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • Grab another bowl and add the wet ingredients. Mix well.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Pour the gluten free batter into a mug. (The batter should be 1/2 to the top of the mug. If it is a lot higher, use a larger mug.)
  • Microwave your mug cake for 90 seconds. Allow to cool.



  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend in this recipe. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. You can use any microwave safe mug for this recipe.
  4. The mug handle may be very hot when you remove it from the microwave. Make sure to use a pot holder to remove the mug.
