  • 6 tablespoon almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil (melted) (can use melted butter if preferred)
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt


  • Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  • Mix until well combined and lump free.
  • Use a rubber spatula to scrap the mixture into a small microwave safe dish.
  • Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the cake (I use a large spatula) and allow to cool for a few minutes on a wire rack.


Tips and Tricks:

  1. We use a small rectangular baking dish (approximately 8”x5”) and cut it into 6 squares.
  2. You can divide the recipe in two mugs and cook for about 90 seconds each. This makes two large mug cakes.
  3. We recommend frosting the cake with our Cream Cheese Frosting.
