Chocolate Mug Cake with Creamy Strawberry Icing

July 29, 2012

I know this is a day late, but here is the cake recipe! Yesterday my computer was commandeered by the men of my house. I had a few minutes of internet time and unfortunately none of that was on my blog! So here is a quick and delicious cake that I’ve made twice now and LOVE! Again, like my other recipes, this can be changed however you wish. I’m just showing you how I enjoy it. 🙂

—————————————————————-

Chocolate Mug Cake with Creamy Strawberry Icing

2 TBL Coconut Flour

2 TBL Flax Seed

2 TBL Butter

2 TBL LC Milk

1 Egg

1/2 TSP Baking Powder

2 Packets of sweetener (one if you want it less sweet)

Icing

2 TBL Butter

2 TBL Cream Cheese

1 TSP SF Strawberry Syrup

1 Packet Sweetener (you can add more if you want it super sweet like real icing)

Melt butter in microwave and mix dry ingredients. Beat egg and add to mixture. Add butter (2 TBL), mix all together and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes in microwave depending on wattage. Remove from microwave, flip mug over on plate and remove cake. Put remaining butter and cream cheese in microwave-safe bowl and heat for at least 20 seconds. Take out, add sweetener and syrup, and mix well. Once cake is cooled cut cake in half, spoon some icing onto one half and then top with the other half. Drizzle remaining icing on top. Sit cake in fridge for a few minutes to let the icing firm up.

Carbs- 18 Net Carbs- 7 (Can be higher depending on sweetener)

You can omit the butter from the icing if you wish. I think I will try it without it next time. It made a very soft icing which I enjoyed but I decided I would have liked it thicker.

Lack of Posts and New Recipe Coming up

July 26, 2012

I’ve been pretty exhausted the last few days, so I haven’t been up to making a post until today.  A few days ago I finished reading Rapture, the last book in the Fallen series and debated whether I wanted to do a review or not.  I started to write it out, but it came out as a bitter rant so I scraped that idea.  I don’t really want to get into the book discussion.  Yeah, I’m not exactly happy.  Well, I AM happy. . .that it’s over with!

So, hopefully sometime in the next two days I will have a recipe up for a delicious mug cake I made last night.  Here’s a hint- It involves COCONUT FLOUR and FLAXSEED!  Yep, I tried both and let me just tell you, this cake was amazing!  Tomorrow I plan on making another and cutting the recipe in half.  Well, I’ll keep the icing the same.  That icing was freaking delicious.

Next week I finally have my doctor’s appointment and will find out the results of the blood work I had done earlier this week.  You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting for this.  I am so tired (HA!) of being so drained every day.  As much as I would hate having a thyroid problem, I’m hoping it’s that and not something much much worse.  Believe me, I’ve been worrying about it for a while.  Here’s to hoping I get put on meds that can help me feel like a whole person again!

I now leave you with this adorable image.  Every time I look at it I smile.  These are two of my characters, Mao (the blue guy) and his puppy Ruffles.  If you’re wondering what the heck Mao is, he’s an alien.  Eventually I plan to make a comic with him and his buddies.  I don’t plan to finish this, so you get what is a very adorable incomplete picture. 😛

Mao loves sweets. We’ll pretend that cake is low carb. 😛
