Gluten free & vegan Apple Mug Cake 

Do you know what’s the best thing about a rainy afternoon ? 

If you are thinking  hot cocoa with cinnamon, you are not wrong. But, I went a little bit overboard with my snacks today.

That’s right ! I made a gluten free sugar free vegan mug cake !

This little beauty is made of rice flour. It has that moist crumbly texture and even after cooling down, the cake remained so soft and fluffy. 

 And the best part?

You can whip this cake in under 3 minutes. Yeah baby! 


I have been trying to get a right consistency using the rice flour in mug cakes. Gave me a big heartache every time.

Oh no! Not today. Today must be the day the cake gods finally forgave me 😄
