You know what’s better than a 1 minute dessert? A 1 minute dessert that you don’t have to share! These gluten-free mug cakes are my absolute favorite thing to whip up when that sweet craving hits, but I want something quick.
We’ve got S’mores, Birthday Cake, and a classic Chocolate Chip flavor. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and so easy to make!
Last year, at the beginning of the the pandemic, I became obsessed with making mug cakes. On weeks I wasn’t testing any baked goods, these little guys always came in handy for an after dinner dessert.
I loved all of the different combinations there were, so they were always easy to switch up.
How to make a gluten-free mug cake
The base of these mug cakes are all the same, which make it that much easier! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Oat flour- I find that pre-bought oat flour is best, but you can make your own by blending rolled oats in a blender until they’re fine like flour
- Almond flour
- Egg yolk- the yolk is what helps with the moisture and fluffiness. If you wanted to double the recipe, you can use the whole egg!
- Dairy-free milk
- Neutral tasting oil- I’ve switched off between olive and avocado
- Pure maple syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Baking powder
S’mores Mug Cake
For the s’mores flavor, you prep the base of the cake, and mix in dairy-free chocolate chunks and marshmallows. I love using vegan marshmallows for this!
Chocolate Chip Mug Cake
For the classic chocolate chip flavor, all you’ll need is chocolate chips to mix in and some sea salt to top. If you’re feeling fancy, you can top your chocolate chip mug cake with some vanilla ice cream!
Birthday Cake Mug Cake
For the birthday cake flavor, you’ll mix in some rainbow sprinkles to the batter. I love topping mine with dairy-free whipped cream.
These gluten-free mug-cakes are such a delicious treat when you’re craving something in a hurry, or just want to enjoy a single-serve dessert!
