SunButter & Jelly Mug Cakes for Two
I love a good cake in a mug. I have plenty of gluten-free mug cake recipes, which I have to say are really perfect for people who are gluten free. First, if you’re new to gluten-free baking, a mug cake is less intimidating than a big cake and it doesn’t waste a lot of ingredients if you mess it up. Second, if you live in a mixed-diet household of gluten-free people and gluten eaters, it’s much simpler to be able to prepare your own little cake in your own little mug if the gluten eaters are having their own gluten-filled desserts. And lastly, my mug cakes typically serve two people, so they’re great for a date night or if you want to share with a friend and show them how tasty a gluten-free dessert can be. So without further ado, I bring you my newest mug cake – SunButter & Jelly Mug Cakes for Two.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this dessert takes all of 5 minutes to prepare and as the name implies, it serves two. That’s one serving for two people or two servings for you – your choice! The base of this cake is gluten-free all-purpose flour (any brand will do; I use my own flour blend), SunButter (I suggest using creamy or organic; you can also try their new chocolate one but I haven’t tried that in this cake myself yet), and of course, jelly. You can use whatever variety of jelly/jam you prefer, but mixed berry is always a nice one.
This is the perfect last-minute dessert to make after a nice dinner with your significant other, right before plopping down on the couch for some cuddle time and movies. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
