Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp Manini’s GF Flour Blend
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp GF vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips + a few for the top optional
  • whipped cream or ice cream optional

Instructions

  • Place the butter or coconut oil in a (microwave safe) mug, and microwave for 30-40 seconds to melt. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the chocolate chips, and stir to thoroughly combine. Then, stir the chocolate chips into the batter, reserving a couple to sprinkle on top.
  • Microwave for 1 minute on high. Check the cake, and cook on high for 30 seconds at a time until done (the total cook time should only be 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.) Top with ice cream or whipped cream if desired, and dig in!
