Nutrition Fact: This recipe contains almond meal, instead of flour, which means more healthy fats and protein than your regular chocolate cake! Added bonus: It takes a total of 8 minutes to make AND cook! If the batter is too thick, you can add an additional 1 to 2 teaspoons of milk (almond for DF option) to develop desired consistency. (Requires microwave.) This recipe can be made both dairy and gluten-free.
Place all dry ingredients (almond meal, cacao, baking powder, salt) into mug/ramekin and stir.
Add wet ingredients (egg, syrup, yoghurt, vanilla, milk) and mix until there are no lumps and mixture is smooth.
Ensure mug is not completely filled to the top and that there is a 2 to 3 cm at the top so that the mug does not overflow when cooking.
Cook in microwave for 60 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir, mixture will probably still be undercooked.
Place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Add preferred toppings and serve immediately while still nice and warm!
