Have you ever tried a cake in a mug?
I have heard about making protein cakes/muffins in a mug and thought I would throw something of my own together. Who would have ever thought I might try to come up with my own recipe?
I think my protein mug cake turned out just fine. I might not use a whole egg next time rather just the white but we’ll see.
I look forward to trying more varieties too. Next time I might add oatmeal and cocoa or chocolate protein powder. So many ways you could try this one out.
Here’s the recipe:
Almond Vanilla Cake in a Mug
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 egg
- vanilla (a quick pour, didn’t measure)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 scoop protein powder (I used the ViSalus Vi-Shape shake mix for this one)
Then follow these steps:
Mix everything together well in a mug.
Put in microwave 1-2 minutes.
Watch that the cake doesn’t go over the top of the mug!
I put about a heaping tablespoon of vanilla Greek Yogurt and a tablespoon of peanut butter on top.
Fun snack for today.
