Easy-to-Make, Mini-Fudge Cake Recipe You Can Make in a Mug and is Impossible to OvereatThis article is shared with permission from our friends at paleohacks.com

Sometimes you just want chocolate cake. Something sweet and irresistibly fudgy. But making a whole chocolate cake can be a lot of work. It often requires using several bowls, beating egg whites, and acquiring specialty ingredients. And as a result of all that laboring in the kitchen, you usually have a big mess to clean up.

That’s where this incredibly simple recipe comes in! Since it’s a single serving, this chocolate cake has built-in portion control. You just need a few minutes to put it together, and the recipe makes one perfectly-sized piece of chocolate cake.

This recipe is made with high-protein almond meal (or almond flour) instead of white flour. So it’s perfectly Paleo and grain-free. Almond flour has a much greater nutritional value than processed flour. Being made from almonds, this baking substitute offers you the following health benefits:

  • Excellent source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects against free radical damage and strengthens the immune system
  • Also a good source of B vitamins
  • Contains minerals calcium, phosphorous, potassium and zinc, all of which contribute to bone health
  • Almond flour also contains monounsaturated fats, which can help lower cholesterol and ultimately boost hearth health
  • The fiber content allows you to feel full, which in turn curbs appetite and prevents weight gain

Livestrong.com also provides the following nutrient information about almond flour:

One quarter-cup serving of almond flour contains 138 calories, 5 grams of protein and 11 grams of fat. Of the 11 grams of fat, 7 grams are heart healthy monounsaturated fats, and less than 1 gram is saturated fat. Almond flour is naturally cholesterol free. A quarter-cup serving contains 6 grams of carbohydrates and is a good source of fiber, with 3 grams per serving.

If you want to get fancy, add in some mini chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, or a few raspberries. You could even substitute carob powder for the cocoa powder to make it a caffeine-free cake.

So the next time you’re craving something sweet, whip up this Paleo single-serving chocolate cake. And enjoy it as an afternoon snack or after-dinner treat.

This Single-Serving Chocolate Cake delivers fudgy satisfaction— with almost zero effort.
