Sugar Free Chocolate Mug Cake

It was a cold and rainy night. My cable wasn’t working. I wanted chocolate cake.

So, by golly, I made chocolate cake! It was the perfect addition to my pitiful evening!

I have a strict policy not to make cake unless I am taking it out of my house. I don’t need that temptation sitting on my counter. Since I had no occasions to take a cake to, I found a recipe on the web for a delicious sounding mug cake for one. This recipe was different because it didn’t call for an egg or egg replacer!

I modified the original recipe slightly to make it gluten free and sugar free and was very satisfied with the results. I served it atop some pumpkin puree for a surprisingly healthy dessert!

Chocolate + no guilt? Sign me up!
