AIP "Chocolate" Mug Cake (AIP, Paleo, Vegan)




I have a confession to make, I have been sitting on this recipe for months, like before Emily was born months. The thing is, the only time I make this is a special after dinner treat, so I was never able to take a picture of it. I know, super lame. BUT I am sharing this simple mug cake with you now, and promise it was worth the wait. And before you begin to ask if you can sub this flour or that, trust me, I tried it. I have made this many, many times, with many different AIP flour combos, and this is the only combo of flours that I have found works for the perfect fluffy goodness.

As a friendly reminder, AIP treats are still treats, so it's important to limit them and not overdo it. I have made that mistake myself enough to know, it's not work with it.

  1. Thank you for this recipe! It totally satisfied my "treat" craving last night and prevented me from doing something terrible like going and buying Ben and Jerry's! haha Also, the super dark and chocolatey nature of this cake made it feel very rich and filling.

  2. Is there any way to make this in the oven instead of the microwave? It looks yummy but I don't like to cook anything in the microwave Thanks!!

    1. Honestly, I am not sure as I have not tried it. Based on another recipe on my blog you could try cooking it at 350 F for about 15 mins and go from there. Again, totally guessing as I have not tried it in the oven.

  4. I baked it in the oven, and it came out great! I had the oven set at 400, but after a few minutes, decided that might be too high, and I turned it down to 350. Baked it 15 min. Let it cool 15 min. Yum! Nice texture - fluffy and cake-like. Thanks!

  5. I must have done something wrong. Taste was good, but texture was rubbery - definitely not fluffy. Any thoughts?

  6. Maybe just try less time in microwave? We did 70 seconds on the second batch because our first batch came out super dry!
