Making a mug cake eliminates any excess sweet stuff that might hang around. Mug cakes are portion controlled single or double serving sized keto desserts that you can make up in minutes. They are the easiest keto dessert to make since everything is mixed together in a bowl or mug an put in the microwave to bake for less than 2 minutes.

Keto Pecan Pie Flavoring

keto pecan pie mug cake with maple pecan syrup In this recipe, I use Maple Pecan Syrup by ChocZero. ChocZero syrups are full of flavor and are keto friendly. They contain no sugars or sugar alcohols. I love using them in many of my keto baking recipes.

If you don’t want to bother with ChocZero syrup, substitute the syrup with 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream and 1/4 teaspoon of pecan extract.

Mugs for a Mug Cake

ramekins stacked up

Traditionally mug cakes are mixed together in a mug and then baked in the same mug in the microwave for a minute or two. I like to transer my mug cake to a pretty ramekin or I’ll just mix it together in a large ramekin. This recipe will make two pecan pie mug cakes if using a 6 oz ramekin. Remember to coat the mug or ramekin with cooking spray before filling the mug cake so it doesn’t stick to the sides.

Mug Cake in the Oven

pecan pie mug cake in a ramekin If you don’t have a microwave or don’t like to use them, you can still make keto pecan pie mug cakes. Bake the mug cakes in an oven safe dish, like a ramekin, at 325 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until cake is set in the middle.

Optional Toppings for Keto Pecan Pie Mug Cake

Keto pecan pie mug cake is absolutely delicious without additional toppings; however, I highly recommend you add a dollup of whipped cream on top or a scoop of keto friendly ice cream.
