Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 1 mug cake


  • 3 tbsp spelt, white, oat, or almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • pinch uncut stevia OR 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp water, or 1 egg or flax egg if using almond flour
  • 2 tsp oil or buttery spread - or applesauce
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

For The Streusel

  • (If you like a lot of streusel feel free to double all ingredients below)
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 tsp sucanat or brown sugar, or keto sweetener
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp oil or butter, or applesauce for low-fat
  • tiny pinch salt
  • 2 pecan or walnut halves


  • I prefer the oil or buttery spread, but that’s simply because I’m not a fan of fat-free baked goods. If using an oven, preheat to 330 F. Combine batter dry ingredients and mix well. Add wet and mix until just mixed. In a tiny bowl, combine all streusel ingredients. Fill a greased muffin tin 1/2 way with the batter (or use a ramekin or mug, if using the microwave). Sprinkle on two-thirds of the streusel, then spoon the remaining batter on top. Finally, sprinkle on the rest of the streusel. Cook 12-13 minutes in the oven, or around 1 minute in the microwave. Microwave times will vary, depending on microwave wattage.
