Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake

Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug CakePin recipeFollow us 51.7k

This 2-minute mug cake is a real treat for Valentine's day! It's moist, rich in flavour and the frosting takes it a step closer to real red velvet cake. The beetroot powder that I used in this recipe gives the mug cakes a pink tint. If you want to achieve a deep red colour, you will have to use a few drops of red food colouring. The products I found in the UK either contained unwanted additives or sugar so I avoided using any food colouring. For more Valentine's day treats, check out more of my ketogenic recipes.

Instructions

  1. Place the almond flour, coconut flour, cacao powder, beetroot powder, baking soda, Erythritol and vanilla powder in a bowl and combine well. Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake
  2. Add the eggs, melted coconut oil and sour cream and mix until well combined. Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake
  3. Divide the mixture between two mugs. Microwave each mug cake on high for 70-90 seconds. Meanwhile, prepare the frosting by mixing the butter, remaining Erythritol, cream cheese and vanilla. For a smooth texture, use a blender. Instead of the frosting, you can use whipped cream or creamed coconut milk with a dash of vanilla.
    Tips for cooking in the oven: If you don't have a microwave, I suggest you make 4-8 servings at once. Preheat the oven to 175 C / 350 F and cook for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked in the centre. Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake
  4. Let the mug cakes cool down. Place the frosting in a piping bag or simply spoon it on top of each mug cake. Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake Enjoy! Low-Carb Red Velvet Mug Cake

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
