Hospitality Corner by Nathlia Holtz
During this time, it was suggested that I share a few recipes since we can’t get together to share the real thing. Lately I have been making mug cakes in the microwave. My husband and I share one mug cake, as we are both watching our calories. It takes care of the need for a dessert without 3/4 of a cake sitting around.
Chocolate Mug Cake
So good when hot out of the microwave!
2 TB. Milk or Buttermilk
3 TB. Flour
3 TB. Sugar
2 TB. Cocoa
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
Pinch of salt
Splash of Vanilla
3 TB. Chocolate Chips
Mix together the egg and the milk in the mug, separately mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients on top of the egg mixture and blend. Add the chocolate chips. Clean off any batter that is on the upper part of the mug. Bake in the microware for one minute plus 30 seconds. Let sit for a few moments. Add vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, drizzle some chocolate sauce over the top and even add nuts or more chips. Or keep it light with a few berries. So good. Create zip lock bags with the dry ingredients for real chocolate emergencies. Hot cake in less than 5 minutes!
And here's a Keto Lemon Cake from June Dudley:
Keto Lemon Cake
1. If I throw a few berries in, I increase the coconut flour to 1/2 tsp. to absorb the extra berry juices.
2. I sometimes substitute lime juice for the lemon juice.
