Microwave Chocolate Coconut Cake Recipe with Cream Cheese Frosting!

Did someone say chocolate?!

It’s funny because I used to not be a huge fan of chocolate but these days I’m hooked. Usually when I have a craving for something sweet and chocolatey my go to are those skinny cow ice cream bars. My favorite are the chocolate truffle ones. They’re delicious and only 100 calories. As much as I LOVE those bars sometimes they just don’t seem to be enough. For those moments I feel like a mug cake is the perfect treat! I actually just recently came across mug cakes so I’m totally late on this fad but better late than never right? I’m an avid fan of cake but my problem is I can never have just one slice. Mug cake is personal sized which is so great because that means you get to eat the whole thing yourself without an ounce of guilt. Bonus is that it’s cooked in the microwave so hardly any waiting for this dessert.  I experimented with many different methods to cook the cake and after a couple major fails I realized my favorite was cooking the cake in a bowl rather than a mug. In a bowl the cake cooked evenly and turned out super moist. This recipe has definitely become a staple for me when I’m having an intense sugar craving. I don’t believe in depriving yourself of the foods you love. It’s about finding balance and a healthier portion. That way you can eat your cake and still fit into your skinny jeans!

Instructions
  1. Spray non stick cooking spray in bowl. Use a paper towel to evenly spread the liquid and soak up any excess. Set bowl aside for later.
  2. In your second bowl add 1/2 tsp coconut oil and heat in microwave for 15 seconds or until melted. Add 1 TBSP almond coconut milk and an egg yolk. Whisk with fork.
  3. Add 4 TBSP fudge brownie mix and stir. I like to add 2 TBSP at a time to ensure the batter is super smooth. Use your spatula to scrape off the corners where the brownie mix tends to stick.
  4. Transfer cake batter into bowl coated with nonstick spray and microwave for 45 seconds. Rinse spatula, fork and second bowl while the cake is cooking to prepare for the frosting.
  5. Remove cake from microwave and set aside to cool. Add 1 tsp butter to clean bowl. If you're using a stick of butter 1 tsp would be 1/3 of a tablespoon slice. Heat in microwave for 10 seconds or until creamy when stirred.
  6. Add 2 tsp whipped cream cheese and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir ingredients together.
  7. Add 1 TBSP powdered sugar and stir until completely smooth. I switched back and forth between my spatula and fork to mix the frosting and make it super smooth.
  8. Spread the frosting on top of your cake and sprinkle 1 TBSP of sweetened coconut shreds on top. Enjoy...:)
