Keto Paleo Coconut Sponge Cake in a Mug

16 ratings

A great option for those of you that are dairy-free or paleo! Feel free to replace the milk with another alternative milk, but the canned coconut milk makes the greatest coconut flavor!

      The recipe calls for 3Tbs coconut milk listed twice. Is this an error or is it 6 Tbs?

        I’m wondering the same? Going to use 2 t and reserve the other 1 t for the drizzle before serving!

        Delicious, I love the coconut flavor but too sweet for me. Will try with only one tbs of sweetner next time and tweak from there... did not have swerve icing sugar and replaced with Lakanto monkfruit erythritol blend, so maybe that was the problem...

            Wonderful recipe. I substituted 1tbs monkfruut instead of swerve and used light coconut milk. It’s what I had in the house

              I do not have microwave. Can it be baked.? If so what temperature and time ?

                  The end product came out a little dry. Recipe definitely needs bit more work. Good enough for any quick coconut dessert craving fix. I was only able to eat half of it.

                      This was a great desert. It hit the spot. It got rid of my craving for cake.

                        So, do we only count the net carbs or the total carbs? I’m new to this. I sure don’t want to eat 29 carbs for dessert but it sure looks good.

                          If we count net carbs then the carb manager should be set for net not total?

                          You would count net carbs!

                        Why would something with 29g of carbs ever be considered Keto!?!

                          Most of the "carbs" are from the sugar alcohols which are 18 g. The other "carbs" are from fiber which is at 5 g. That's 23 g that are not counted (28.6 g - 23.2 = 5.4 g net carbs)

                          BigHorse and SusayQq ~ because most of it is sugar alcohols and fibre, neither of which are disgested the same way as sugar, nor do they affect blood sugar levels.

                          I don’t understand where they get the 29g of carbs? It says 5 grams of net carbs, which I even calculated the same. Makes no sense to me the 29. Weird.
