Most of us, keto and low-carb loving people, like to snack on avocado. And a lot of us is highly busy and like to snack on simple and quickly prepared stuff. Avocado Cake from a Mug is a great solution for the days we get so burried-up in work we believe such days should be followed by a week of spa by law.
As the name suggests, it’s a cake, prepared in a coffee mug (or a ramekin), and microwaved. The microwave speeds the process up, and I must admit, I haven’t tried baking this cake in a conventional oven. Might turn out even better, who knows.
I got the idea for the cake from so many mug cakes around the internet. But I prefer a cake from a mug to a mug cake. It looks better to me and, consequently; even tastes better. I like putting some extra heavy whipping cream or mascarpone on the side instead directly onto a cake. This way it doesn’t melt straight away, as the cake is pretty hot for a while. And I’m always impatient to dig into it.
The recipe below provides macronutrient information for the basic cake, which includes whey powder that I used. Your whey protein powder might have different composition. Besides, if you decide to add some suggested extra stuff into the cake, the nutrients will change, naturally. For example, I like to make crumbles out of my LCHF protein bars, and put them inside the cake batter. Alternatively, I just add some crumbled extra dark chocolate. Yum!
Yes, this cake might be ideal for those who don’t hesitate on getting some extra protein, but then again, it’s not that bad. If you look closely, you’ll see that the cake is still mostly fat. In my opinion, highly active people can enjoy this treat every now and then without giving it much thought. Our lifestyles shouldn’t be about complicating and stressing out much, right?
What follows, is a procedure for making two differently flavoured cakes: Vanilla and chocolate. The only difference is in the protein powder flavours. So you can actually add any flavour you wish! Enjoy!
