A quick and easy keto mug cake recipe which tastes like a cinnamon roll! Made with no coconut and no almond flour, it’s a flourless cinnamon cake with a delicious sugar free glaze! Vegan and oven option included.
Keto Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake
When it comes to single serve recipes, mug cakes and cakes in mugs are my all-time favorite.
It’s time for it to get the cinnamon roll makeover.
I’ve already shared a cinnamon roll mug cake recipe on here, but this recipe is vastly different.
I wanted to create an even easier mug cake, made without coconut flour or almond flour, and with minimal ingredients. The downside of many keto mug cake recipes is that they require one of the two flours.
My new version doesn’t need either of those. In fact, it is 100% flourless!
In terms of texture, it is super fluffy and light but is super moist in the center.
Taste-wise, it really is like a gooey, cinnamon roll. Sweet, cinnamon flavored cake topped with a gooey, sweet cinnamon frosting!
Not only is this cinnamon roll mug cake 100% keto, paleo and gluten-free, it also comes with an eggless and vegan option! Bonus? It is also 100% nut-free!
To make this flourless cinnamon roll mug cake, you only need SIX ingredients-
- Keto granulated sweeteners
- Baking Powder
- Coconut Butter
TAHINI AND ALTERNATIVES
Of course, peanut butter works well too, but it will not be nut-free or paleo friendly if you do opt for this.
A keto approved sugar substitute needs to be used, both for the mug cake and the icing.
A healthy glaze/frosting on the cinnamon roll mug cake takes it up a notch, and really gives it a true, cinnamon roll like flavor.
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE VEGAN
To make this cinnamon roll mug cake vegan and eggless, you’ll just need to replace the egg with the following combination-
1/4 cup of milk of choice (coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk etc)
Using this replacement will ensure it is light, fluffy, yet moist on the inside!
The easiest way to make this mug cake is to use a microwave, and it won’t take longer than 2 minutes. However, not everyone uses a microwave or has access to one.
You can use a conventional or toaster oven to make this mug cake. Simply pour your mug cake batter in an oven-safe ramekin and bake for 12-15 minutes, at 175F/350C, or until a toothpick comes out just clean.
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR THE PERFECT KETO CINNAMON ROLL MUG CAKE
Ensure you lightly grease your dish used, to avoid the cake sticking to it.
For a quick frosting fix, as soon as the mug cake is freshly made and hot, add a tablespoon or two of coconut butter and let it melt on top.
The mug cake batter shouldn’t be prepped in advance, and should always be made fresh. You can, however, bake it, then enjoy it at a later time.
If you’d like to make several in advance, these mug cakes keep well refrigerated, for up to 3 days. They are also freezer friendly, for up to 2 months.
