How fun is this mug cake?!?!? It only takes a few minutes to make, too. But first of all, let's take a look at what “funfetti” actually means! It's actually a type of confetti cake:
Confetti cake is a type of cake that has rainbow colored sprinkles baked into the batter. It is called confetti cake because when baked, the rainbow sprinkles melt into dots of bright color that resemble confetti.”
And here's more:
The cake was created in 1989 when the Pillsbury Company introduced a new type of cake called “Funfetti” cake, a portmanteau of fun and confetti.”
So this recipe is basically a vanilla mug cake with added keto-friendly sprinkles. It's pretty simple and if I already had a vanilla mug cake recipe on the site, I might have just added the sprinkles as an option. But I don't (although I have lots of other low carb mug cakes!), so here we are!
I have used vanilla extract to flavor the cake – you could use the seeds scraped from a vanilla bean for a more pronounced flavor, but I personally didn't think it was worth it for this fun treat!
How to Make a Low Carb Funfetti Mug Cake
Melt some unsalted butter in a jug in the microwave and let cool slightly. Add fine almond flour, sweetener (I use Golden Lakanto but white sweetener would also work), vanilla extract, and baking powder.
Mix in a beaten egg and stir well to combine. Finally, add some keto sprinkles – I love these ones from Stoka!
Pour the mixture into a greased mug, bowl, or ramekin (greasing the container will help stop it overflow when it cooks).
Microwave on full power for 60-90 seconds or until cooked through.
This cake is soft and moist, and although these sprinkles are not as bright as regular ones, they still add fun pops of color!
