Chocolate Mug Cake Keto Style

Happy National Chocolate Cake Day!

Chocolate mug cake with a bouquet of yellow flowers.

I love that someone in this world recognized that we needed a Chocolate Cake Day!  Early on in our American history, chocolate was consumed as a drink.  The first chocolate cake recipe appeared in 1847 and Betty Crocker blessed us with her chocolate cake mix in 1947.  What a delightful history!

If you would like to try your own hand at making a chocolate cake mix, you need to try this one! I keep a few on hand for those moments when you want to make a homemade cake but are a bit short of time. It is delicious!  I made these chocolate cupcakes with the cake mix, too!

Sometimes you don't want a whole cake in the house. For me, that is courting disaster!  That's when this delicious Chocolate Mug Cake Keto Style steps up and says, howdy!  It satisfies your sweet tooth and there aren't leftovers to tempt you into another slice!
