  6. Microwave for another 60 seconds.
  7. Using a butter knife scrape the outside of the mixture and mug to ensure it won’t stick. (If mixture gets stuck to the knife continue microwaving your cake).
  8. Serve – On a plate tip your mug upside down and gently pat the bottom, remove mug and your cake should be upside down on your plate.

Notes ~

If you don’t have psyllium husk you can use 1 tbsp coconut flour & you may need 1 tbsp of non-dairy milk.

You can eat straight out of the mug, just ensure it is cooked by poking it with a skewer, then top with whatever you desire.

The protein powder I used is Vital Vanilla Pea Protein and it is already sweetened.

If you don’t have baking powder, baking soda will work too.

Toppings Pictured are – sliced banana, & 1 tbsp peanut butter.
