Cup Cake

Mug Cake

Remember the mug cake?! A hit a good few years ago :) this is a slightly healthier version but equally delicious.

Ideal cake for those days when we need a sweet immediately. Just mix everything in a cup and you're done. Quick to make, not too messy and rich in chocolate, yummm. Can there be any better ?


Makes 1 large or 2 small cups

2 tablespoons of tahini or almond butter

60g melted cooking chocolate or 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

¼ cup coconut sugar or other you like

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract

1 level tablespoon of your favorite flour (I've made it with spelt, rice flour, etc. It always works well)



Heat the oven to 180º. Grease a cup with butter and set aside.

In the cup mix the tahini or almond butter with the melted chocolate or cocoa. Add the remaining ingredients. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes, until crispy on the outside but liquidy inside.


I don't have a microwave, never had one, so I make this cake in the oven, but those who have and prefer to use go ahead!
