Another Croquembouche: Gluten and Dairy Free Coconut Macaroons

Well, I found the perfect solution: make a batch of these extremely easy and quick coconut macaroons. It takes no time at all, and even little kids could whip up this recipe!

Yay! Another Gluten-Free Recipe: Matcha Microwave Mug Cake

So I’m sick. Life is just splendid. But see this dedication? I’m still blogging about mug cakes. Wow, I am such a trooper. Anyway… this is a continuation of the gluten-free mug cake thing I’m doing (should I call this a series?) for all those people in the world on a gluten-free diet. It is subtly sweet, full of the earthy flavor of matcha, and is light and spongy. Once again, even if you’re not gluten-free (like moi!) still give this one a shot! The color is amazing, and like all my other mug cake recipes, it is seriously a breeze to whip up! So let’s get started on this delectably fluffy and spongey, Matcha Microwave Mug Cake!

Almond-Chocolate Microwave Mug Torte (As Requested: A Gluten-Free Mug Cake!)

So a friend of mine recently went gluten-free and noticed that most of my mug cakes and other creations included some form of gluten.

Even if you’re not gluten-free, I would definitely recommend making this rich, decadent, dense, and chocolatey microwave mug tort. It has only has 5 ingredients and takes 1 minute to cook, so what are you waiting for? Whip out that mug and let’s make us a delectable, gluten-free, single-serving dessert!

3-Ingredient Flourless Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake

Trust me, I know what it’s like to live with allergy restrictions. Although I don’t have any allergies, I grew up with my brother being allergic to literally everything. Nuts, tree-nuts, dairy, gluten, soy, legumes, certain shellfish and other random food items. You name it, he was allergic to it (luckily he has outgrown most of these allergies by now). Gluten-free is probably the most common allergen besides nuts, and luckily for all you gluten-free viewers out there, I have a special mug cake recipe just for you! This  flourless chocolate cake has a deep chocolate flavor that will satisfy any chocolate craving. An an additional bonus: it is by far the simplest mug cake I have ever made (it’s only three ingredients!).
