Gluten Free Coffee Cake in a Coffee Mug

This recipe, Gluten Free Coffee Cake in a Coffee Mug, was too cute to pass up!  Great snack for one person with lots of good Gluten Free Vegan ingredients.

I especially like this concept because there is just me and my husband.  If I make a whole cake pan full of coffee cake,  … guess what happens!!  So a one coffee mug serving would be perfect!  I might even make two and share with him!!

“All For One” Coffee Cake

For the crumb topping:

1 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut (I used reduced fat coconut.)
1/2 Tablespoon almond meal
1 teaspoon applesauce
pinch salt
sweetener to taste (I used 1/2 packet of stevia.)

For the cake:

2 Tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon egg replacer plus 4 Tablespoons of water
1/4 cup applesauce
sweetener to taste (I use 1-2 packets of stevia.)


1.  Mix all the ingredients for the cake in a bowl and stir until completely combined. Pour into a large, greased, microwave-safe mug and set aside.
2.   Now mix all the ingredients for the crumb topping until completely combined, and sprinkle on top of the coconut flour mixture in the mug. Microwave for about 2 minutes, keeping a close eye on it to cook it shorter or longer as needed because microwave cooking times vary so greatly. (Just note: It took 2:30 in my microwave, but my microwave is older than I am.) Let cool for a few minutes.


Do you make any one serve Gluten Free Vegan ‘goodies’ such as the Coffee Cake above?  Please share if you do!!
