Just for Me Chocolate Mug Cake – Gluten Free

Mug cake

Sometimes is just stinks being Gluten Free. How many times do you go to parties or events where food is served and everyone is eating scrumptious desserts and you get the veggie tray? Not that veggies are all bad, they are yummy too, but everyone else is eating cake. You want cake too. Here is the answer! Made and written by my allergy ridden child.

Hi. The other day I (Abbey) made a gluten free chocolate cake in a mug. You can find the recipe on Hunters of Happiness. It was so simple, and it worked really really well. It only took less then five minutes to mix the ingredients, and then 50 seconds to cook in the microwave! It was amazing. The cake was delicious and I will make this
over and over again because it was so simple and good.
The recipe called for only 4 ingredients:
Gluten Free Bisquick
Cocoa Powder
1 Egg
Almond Milk
The recipe is so simple. However, it does call for Almond milk and I am allergic to almonds, so we used normal cow milk then recipe called for Hershey’s cocoa powder, but there is another brand my mom REALLY likes called SACO’s Premium Cocoa, so I used that. We just followed all the other instructions exactly the same after that.
Abbey and her own chocolate cake
Abbey used the the cake for a church activity she attended where they were making no bake peanut butter cookies, she is allergic to peanuts too, so she made this cake just minutes before she left for the evening. It was great because I didn’t have to do anything to help. She knows enough about cooking, and the recipe was simple and quick, no prep needed. Sometimes I feel like I spend so much time cooking for her so she can go attend whatever it is teenagers to do (and food is always involved). But with this I can put the ball in her court, and she can whip it up quick, go and have fun and feel like she gets a treat too. Oh and here is a bonus – only one small dish to wash (the mug). Abbey added frosting to the top and sprinkles, just to finish it off. She loved how easy and yummy to cake was. And it was huge, all the way to the top of the mug!up to the top
