Is It Safe To Eat A Mug Cake?

Though mug cakes are usually eggless, using good-quality stevia as an ingredient will be okay. However, no matter what kind of dessert you put in your mug,

please watch your portions and eat them only after the bell has gone, or at least have enough portion control.

How Long Do You Cook This Mug Cake?

As you know, the size of the mug you use and its capacity to hold heat will have a lot to do with the time it takes to cook. So, if your mug is enormous and not very good at holding heat, it may take up to 6 minutes or more.

If your mug is made of ceramic or glass and has good insulating properties, then the cooking time will be less than 5 minutes. However, a cupcake cocotte with an oven-resistant glass lid could also work.

Variation Ideas

1. You can add nuts to this mug cake recipe, like walnuts, pecans, or almonds.

2. You can add some blueberries to the mug cake batter.

3. You can use chocolate chips instead of Sukrin in this keto vanilla mug cake recipe.

4. Reduce the amount of butter and Sukrin and increase the amount of almond flour and stevia by 5%.

5. Increase the amount of Sukrin if it is not sweet enough, or reduce it depending on your taste preference.

Can I Keep it Freeze For Stored?

Yes, you can, however, after storing it for some time, the cake’s texture may change, and it may lose its firmness.

So cooking it from frozen may not give you that same texture or presentation. But if you still want to try it, then let us know how you liked it.


Can I use a different sweetener?

Absolutely! Choose a keto-friendly sweetener that suits your taste preferences.

Is almond flour necessary?

Yes, almond flour provides the right texture and flavor for this mug cake.

Can I make this in an oven?

Certainly! Bake at 350°F (175°C) for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked through.

Is heavy cream replaceable?

You can use coconut cream or unsweetened almond milk as alternatives.

Can I double the recipe?

Of course! Adjust the ingredient quantities accordingly and divide the batter into two mugs.
