Eggless Matcha Mug Cake Recipe . This cake literally takes just 2 mins of our time and just a mug to make & enjoy loaded with the goodness of Matcha. Its also 100% gluten free.
A quick and easy dessert or snack when the craving hits you and or if your sweet tooth gets the better of you.
I always look forward to include anything green in all my meals and this matcha mug cake has quickly become my evening snack.
If you are looking for more info on Matcha, you can find it in my “No bake matcha energy bites” post where in I have explained all about matcha, its types and its benefits.
I have adapted this cake from my 2 min Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake and made little adjustment to the ingredients to suit my needs which is to make it gluten free.
As the base is rolled oats, the cake will not be as moist as a regular mug cake.
As it is 100% gluten free, the texture will be a coarse and crumbly instead of super moist when you all purpose flour.
But the addition of coconut oil made it moist enough instead of being super crumbly.
If you want to make this into a vegan cake, you can substitute the milk with either coconut, almond, cashew or soy milk.
If you wish to make this naturally sweetned, then you can also use either apple puree or mashed bananas, but that will change the flavor of the cake.
All in all, an elegant and classy dessert to serve and eat if you are going for portion controlling anything sweet that you eat which is exactly my intention.
