A tasty low carb blueberry mug cake that bakes up in minutes. The recipe makes two serving so eat one now and save the other for later.
It was a hectic weekend and it seems there isn’t enough free time these days. Things are getting busy at work so I won’t be able to take time off until May. I usually don’t like wasting vacation time when the weather’s cold any way.
One of the recipes I made this weekend was a disaster so I had to think of something else quickly. Using my birthday mug cake recipe as a base, I came up with this low carb blueberry mug cake recipe. It’s a nice treat that’s ready in minutes.
Mug cakes and muffins are perfect for a quick snack or breakfast. I don’t know why I haven’t made more quick microwave recipes. Sometimes, I think I tend to make things more difficult than they need to be.
My youngest daughter loves blueberries so I had some fresh berries in the refrigerator. I don’t find the berries to be that good this time of year. And, they certainly don’t compare to the ones we pick over the summer. That’s why I usually use frozen berries in recipes during the off season.
Now I have a quick and easy recipe for a low carb blueberry mug cake that I can throw together. It will be a yummy treat in the morning on the weekends or a snack after work.
This tasty blueberry mug cake recipe could also be made in larger batches and baked in the ramekins. It should only take 10-15 minutes to bake in the oven.
The idea of making a mug cake is still kind of new to me. I guess I’m not completely sold on the idea of quick microwave baking.
Mug cakes are pretty convenient and are perfect for college kids living in the dorm. Much healthier than the microwave popcorn we used to snack on.
Although I could make up a mug cake in the microwave at work, I’d probably just make it at home first and heat it up in the toaster. The size of each blueberry mug cake is perfect for toasting.
I’ve got to start keeping a list of recipe ideas. I always think of things I’d like to create, but never write them down. New low carb mug cakes certainly need to be on the list.
