Primaleolicious Mug Cake

But I took it out of the mug so you'll have to take my word for it.

Edited to Add: I found the original recipe here and I changed it a bit to make this little cake as follows: 

Melt 2 T of coconut oil.  Stir in 2 T cocoa powder, 1 1/2 T honey, 1 T almond flour (I used hazelnut meal), 1 egg, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla.  Grease the inside of a microwaveable coffee mug with coconut oil and pour in the batter.  Microwave on high for two minutes. 

I didn't find the cake to be rubbery!  In fact, it was pretty tasty as is, but I had some cream cheese frosting I wanted to use up so that's what you see here.  As for how to make that, well, I put some cream cheese in a dish (some of it was homemade) with some cocoa powder and honey and mixed it up. 

Let me know what you think!

What recipe did you use? Was it palatable? I tried one recipe and it was rubbery and disgusting.

Julie, I edited my post to show the recipe. Lately I'm not eating white sugar or white flour, so the ingredients and level of sweetness might be a little different than other recipes. But I thought it was really good and I'm planning to make it again!

It looks good enough that I (kind of) wish I had a microwave!
