Keto mug Cheesecake Ingredients
- 2 oz of cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons swerve
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 large egg
Cheesecake Mug Cake Crust Ingredients
- 1 tablespoon softened butter
- 2 tablespoons almond four
First, butter the inside of the mug so it does not sick.
To make the crust, mix the softened butter and almond flour until it makes a thick paste.
Press or spread the crust mixture into the bottom of the mug. You want to press it firmly so it will stay together in the bottom of the mug if you decide to flip it out.
Next, in a separate bowl soften the cream cheese by microwaving on low 10 seconds. You need the cream cheese soft because it will incorporate better with all other ingredients.
Use a hand mixer to make sure everything is well incorporated.
Finally, pour the keto mug cheesecake mixture over the crust.
Next, microwave for 1:30 on full power.
Check… if top edges are firm, stop and let cool. But if it's not firm, cook for 15-second increments.
Refrigerate a minimum of 1 hour to set. Eat right out of the mug or flip it over on to a plate. (See note below about when it is best to flip.)
- It is easier to turn the cheesecake out onto a plate after it has come out of the microwave. Because it will slide out of the dish better than after it has cooled in the refrigerator. So, if you are going for a nice presentation do this step before cooling.
- There are many optional toppings for a Cheesecake Mug Cake: fresh whipped cream, ripe fresh raspberries, sugar-free chocolate syrup, crumbled keto-friendly peanut butter cup, and strawberries. But, this cheese cake can stand on its own just fine!
