👨🍳 Keto Gingerbread Mug Cake Ingredients
To make this low carb ginger cake in a mug, you will need:
1 tablespoon Almond Flour – almond flour is used in countless keto recipes. It’s a great alternative to regular flour because it’s low in carbs. The texture it gives baked goods is unique, and it’s perfect for this gingerbread mug cake.
1 1/2 tablespoon Coconut Flour – another popular ingredient in keto dessert recipes.
You can buy it at most health food stores, or online. This ingredient is perfect for many mug recipes, so buy a pack and try it out!
1 tablespoon Granulated Stevia Blend – you can use any type of sweetener, but I prefer using a granulated stevia blend for this keto gingerbread mug cake.
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Ginger
1/4 teaspoon Mixed Spice (any kind you like)
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 large Egg
3 tablespoon Almond Milk – You can also experiment with other milks, and even regular cow’s milk!
1 tablespoon low-carb Powdered Sugar (blend erythritol until fluffy)
🥮 How To Make Ginger Cake In A Mug
Follow these east steps to make the keto gingerbread mug cake:
Add all the ingredients (besides the powdered sugar which we will use at the end) to a mixing bowl. Mix until the batter forms.
Pour the batter into a microwave-safe mug. Microwave for 60-65 seconds. Depending on your microwave, you might need to cook it a bit longer.
Let it cool for at least 10 minutes.
Whisk low carb powdered sugar (you can make it by blending erythritol until fluffy) with water to make the frosting.
Add on top, and serve. Enjoy!
Other Keto Mug Cake Recipes
On our website, you can find many other quick and easy keto mug recipes.
My favorite one is this keto mug cheesecake. It looks so good, and tastes amazing!
One keto gingerbread mug cake contains 5g of net carbs. It also provides 7g of fat and 3g of protein.
It’s a low-carb dessert that you can enjoy on the keto diet without worrying about falling off the wagon.
Keep in mind that carbs can add up – if you eat keto desserts all day instead of meat, vegetables, and healthy fats, you’ll probably end up out of ketosis.
So, enjoy this mug cake in moderation!
Tips And Ideas
Add Roasted Pecans
Add roasted pecans on top of the ginger cake in a mug to make it even tastier. On KetoAndEat you can find a great recipe for amazingly tasty roasted pecans.
Combine With Keto Ice Cream
There are so many great keto ice cream recipes online. One of my favorite ones is this butter pecan keto ice cream. Make it at home by following our recipe.
Add this ice cream on top of your gingerbread mug cake to make it even more delicious!
Try different ice creams and experiment to see what you like the most. You could even add some crushed keto cookies on top along with the ice cream.
Many people ask me if they can freeze keto mug cakes. Generally, I don’t recommend freezing them because it can make the texture a bit off. And that applies to this gingerbread mug cake as well.
If you must freeze it, be sure to wrap it well so it doesn’t dry out.
