Breakfast Mug Cake

Mug cakes have already fascinated me for a long time, so we finally tried them out from scratch. We liked them and this was a relatively healthy version. The recipe we used is from the cookbook ‘Noten’ from Marjolaine Daguerre. A cookbook full of all sorts of different recipes containing nuts. The Breakfast Mug Cake is a perfect recipe to kick off the ‘Week zonder vlees‘!

If you’re looking for a simple, not too much work breakfast. It’s not that heavy, so we ate something else on the side. Making a special breakfast is always fun, so is making cookies. After this breakfast make some Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pistachio Pudding Cookies, Praline Spread or Chocolate Almond & Cranberry Clusters. If you want to make a special, not so healthy breakfast, make these Graveyard Pudding Cups or one of the 100+ Pancake Ideas.


The recipe was easy to follow. I made it with oat flour instead of oat flakes. I used coconut flower sugar as unrefined sugar. We liked it, although it was a bit dry.
