Gluten Free Sunbutter and Jelly Mug Cake

Gluten Free Sunbutter and Jelly Mug Cake Recipe

What do you do when you want something sweet and delicious for dessert and you want it to be easy … and you want it now? And you are not in the mood for ice cream or packaged cookies, you are in the mood for something homemade?

Mug cakes are the answer! A little stirring, a minute or two in the microwave and voila! Homemade cake! Seriously, does it get any better than that?

Well, yes actually. Not only are these Sunbutter and Jelly Mug Cakes quick and easy, they use stuff you probably already have in your pantry and no gluten free flour. They are gluten free, nut free, and can easily be made dairy free by using full fat coconut milk in place of the cream.

So next time you want a quick cake fix (or as in my case one of your g-kids looks at you with big blue eyes and sweetly asks if you have any cake) realize you are only a couple minutes away from cake-eating fun.
