Me Size Cake For One [Healthier, Grain Free, Sugar Free, Vegan]
Sometimes you just want cake.
Of course, you want one that’s healthy yet still decadently delicious. So I baked one for you to try in the comfort of your home. And the best part about it – it’s only for you. You deserve only the best.
It’s one of my favourite treats that can be enjoyed without guilt and remorse. I even sneaked in a little protein to make it even more beneficial for us. The serving size is personally sized small and you’ll feel satisfied (hopefully) after having it.
I adapted this recipe from various “one minute mug cakes” online but I’ve always been averse to the use of microwaves. You can use your microwave to cook this little baby up but I don’t recommend it. Plus, it only takes a few minutes to make in the oven and while you’re waiting, you can enjoy a quiet meditation session to yourself or do some yoga before cake indulging. There’s a reason why I call this the ‘me size’ cake for one…
Enjoy your me time. x
