tiramisu mug cake



recipe: cut it in half to get two servings

1 tbsp eryrithol or any sweetener of choice
1/2 tsp of LC sweet brown ( i got this at netrition.com) it gives a brown sugar flavor without the carbs, you can omit this if you want
1 tbsp of unsalted soften butter
3 tbsp of almond flour (honeyville brand)
2 tbsp of vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1 tbsp of almond milk
2 tbsp of beaten egg or egg whites

coffee mixture:
1 tbsp of instant coffee
2 tbsp of water

filling:
2 oz creme cheese or if you have mascarpone cheese use it
2 tbsp whipped cream or heavy cream
1 tsp of eyrithol

garnish:
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp of unsweetened grated chocolate

method:
i always double this recipe instead of having two ramekin i always get 4, put the other two ramekin with a cling wrap covered in the fridge and use it next time.
if you double your recipe just use 1 whole egg for everything.
first of all my microwave is 700 watts so it takes me exactly one minute every time to get the perfect cakey texture, so i suggest that if your microwave have a higher watts check it at 45 seconds. i always put my batter in a 6 oz ramekin.

mix the sweetener and the soften butter first
then add the rest of the ingredients
mix it well
divide your batter into two ramekins ( if you double the recipe divide it to four ramekins)
wait for about a minute to activate the baking powder
microwave for one minute one ramekin at a time, cool a little before taking it out from the ramekin
while waiting for the cake to cool down put your creme cheese in the microwave for about 30 seconds then mix your cream and sweetener to it, if your using whipped cream cool your creme cheese completely before mixing it together.

assembling of the cake:
you only need two mug cake in this recipe to built your tiramisu
cut each mug cake into two like a sandwich, you will have 4 sponge cake
dip the two sponge cake in your coffee mixture those are the ones going in the middle of your cake if your having a hard time dipping it spoon your coffee mixture and pour it to your cake
then just put a layer of cheese mixture in between of your sponge cake.
sprinkle some unsweetened cocoa on top using a fine mesh and some grated chocolate.
