  • cooking spray or butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Swerve Granular
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


Step 1.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a ramekin or mug with cooking spray, or grease it with butter.  If you plan on releasing the cake from the mug, then use the butter, but if you are going to eat it straight out of the mug, then cooking spray is fine.
