Sugar Free Chocolate Mug Cake

Today I want to share with you this delicious mug cake I made. Now you know from some of my past post that I love the little meals and desserts you can make in a mug. Simply because they do no ruin my diet. If I make a whole cake, I will eat the whole cake. I do not have a stop button on sweet stuff.

Not only is this a sweet dessert but it's also considered sugar free as it uses a natural sugar substitute. I'm all in with this one and I must say "this is one of the best mug cakes I have made. It had the same texture as a real oven baked cake.

Mine wanted to puff up and run over but it was an easy clean up.
I enjoyed eating it right out of the mug. It would have even been better with a scoop of ice cream.

  1. This looks yummy. I will definitely be making it. If only everything could be yummy AND low calorie! Thanks for the recipe.

  2. SOLD!!! Oh my should have never shown me this recipe...LOL I have a sweet tooth that runs for days and like you, give me a cake and I will eat the entire thing! Now that I know of a quick recipe to have cake in under 2 minutes...I'm in trouble!! The bad thing is that I love sugar...does this taste like it has artificial sweetener in it? Thanks for making me work out more! ;-) Hugs!

  3. Wow! love this! so easy! and I have the same issue you have with not being able to -turn it off - or turn it down might be better description. You have conquered it - I still have 20 lbs to lose.

  4. Sherry will think the cake is the cat's meow. I think looks good. I also like something simple.
    Love from a pretty but cool morning here in Florida. The days are passing fast, we will head that direction in the near future.

  5. That looks yummy Lisa - and my stomach is already growling for lunch but now I want chocolate cake also!!!!!!!!

  6. Looks delicious and nice not to have to deal eating a whole cake.
    I'll certainly try this!!!

  7. OMGOSH- I was just thinking about a dessert of "some kind". This is absolutely perfect and I am going to make it in just a few minutes. Wait a rice flour or anything of that kind?

  8. I need to write this recipe down. I wiped out a Pepperidge Farm cake this week, pretty much on my own. I also have no sweet control button. Sigh.

  9. Im going to pin this recipie. How was your weekend Lisa, so much rain!
    Love the idea too, where it is a single serving and it looks scrumptious!
    Have a great day!

  10. You are so right, a mug cake is a great way to prevent over indulgence and at just 130 calories it would be rude not to!!

  11. I may need to try this tonight. It looks so good.
