Sorry, sorry, I know I said I’ll be posting a recipe a day for a year, but I had to skip yesterday to post the 30 Day Ketogenic Diet Plan. Go check it out if you’re struggling or having any issues planning out what to eat. It definitely is a good start for friends if they’re interested – so give them a link and let them read all about it!
So, these churro mug cakes are actually pretty darn good. I was interested to see how they turned out – I adapted it from a churro cupcake recipe I saw on Food Network. They definitely stood up to the real thing, I’d imagine – and that sweet tooth…totally satisfied.
Just in case you missed out on the previous recipes in this mug cake series, you can check them out:
Okay, so don’t get your hopes up on the texture of these resembling that of fried crispy dough. They’re not exactly going to bring nostalgic memories of the fair back to you, because you just can’t achieve that in the microwave. But the flavors? The flavors are there. They’re delicious, sweet, a little spicy with a hint of cinnamon.
Yields 1 Churro Mug Cake
- 2 Tbsp. Honeyville Almond Flour
- 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. Vanilla
- 1/8 tsp. Ginger
- 1/8 tsp. Allspice
1. Get your mug ready!
4. Add your spices and flavorings: 2 Tbsp. Honeyville Almond Flour, 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. Vanilla Extract, 1/8 tsp. Ginger, and 1/8 tsp. Allspice. Mix this together well until everything is combined.
5. Microwave on high for 60 seconds (Power Level 10).
6. Turn the mug upside down and lightly bang it onto a plate. It should completely come out of the mug. Optional: Top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
