Flourless Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake

 Flourless chocolate mug cake with strawberries and cream

Yes, it’s chocolate cake. Yes, you make it in the microwave, in a mug. Yes, it’s fucking delicious AND Primal enough that I don’t feel bad eating it. Here:

1 tsp butter, melted 15 sec in m’wave
1 egg
¼ tsp baking powder
½ tsp vanilla essence (optional)
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 Tbsp thick cream
3 Tbsp honey

Melt butter in mug, add egg, beat.
Add rest of ingredients, stir up good.
Microwave for 1 min 20 sec.

If you’re paranoid about explosions, you can microwave in 30 sec bursts for 1 min 30 sec, then 10 sec bursts thereafter.

Btw, those ingredients are listed in adding order if you only have few cutleries (office kitchen style) and want to minimise cross-contamination – just wipe the tool after the cream.

This is based on Easy Chocolate Cake and Fancy Flourless Chocolate Mug Cake, using butter and honey instead of oil and sugar, to make it more Primal.
