Chocolate Mug Cake (Grain Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

I created this Chocolate mug Cake recipe when my husband was working swing shift and I wanted a sweet treat just for myself after the kids went to bed. I do eat grains, but I try to limited myself when I can because my body appreciates it.

I found that is was hard for me to finish the entire chocolate mug cake on my own. I often would leave 1/3 of it. However, my husband had no problem finishing his entire mug. If you are looking for a light treat 2 could share, but if you are a chocoholic then you will want your own chocolate mug cake to yourself.

This Chocolate Mug Cake is light and fluffy and simple to throw together when you need something to crave your sweet tooth, but do not need an entire cake around to tempt you.

I thought it would be the perfect Valentines Day recipe for something who might not be a baker and wanted to make a treat for their valentine. Make 2, serve it up with some Chocolate Covered Strawberries and a bottle of champagne and you will have a grain free, dairy free sweet Valentines day.  Chocolate Mug Cake is always a winner and everyone will love it!
