Life is all about making your choices. Your choices determine the rest of your path. Keto, for me, is not just a diet. I am not doing this just to shed the extra kilos. For me, this is a lifestyle choice. Keto makes my body and mind feel good. The only obstacle for me is the occasional cravings. ‘Cravings’ is not even the correct term. It is more like – I am missing eating xyz food.

One such thing that I was missing was a cake. And a quick one at that. Before keto, whenever I felt like munching or having a snack, I would grab some chips or cookies or even a banana. But I am not allowed any of those things now. I felt like I needed to find something that I can grab as and when I wanted.

And then I found some mug cake recipes on pinterest and it struck me that this is exactly what I want – a quick fix!

And then came this recipe as a blessing. It takes less than 90 seconds in the microwave and less than a minute for the prep. Believe me, keto or not keto, if you have these ingredients at hand, please give this a try!

It is so delicious. My mind was blown when i had this for the first time. And it has become my frequent and favorite mug cake recipe. It is super moist, and soft and very customisable. Since I love bananas (and can’t have them), I use banana essence in these mug cakes. You can use any flavor you want.

You can add or omit chocolate chips, chopped nuts if you like!

Without wasting any more time, let me share the recipe of this amazing 90 second mug cake with you all.
