Gluten Free Chocolate Cake in a Mug

I know it's hard to believe, but sometimes there is just no dessert in my house, and I just want a quick mini dessert for myself.  This recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate Cake in a Mug is the perfect solution in those times of need.  It is quick (cooks in one minute in the microwave), easy, gluten free and not too bad for you.  It provides antioxidants with the cocoa powder and fiber with the fruit and nuts, plus it is gooey and cake-like, all in a single serving!

It is best topped with raspberries, but this last time I made it I only had blackberries and blueberries, but they were a nice topping too.  If you really want to go all out, you can top it with whipped cream and homemade caramel sauce.

If you are sitting on the couch one evening, watching your favorite show, and you get a hankering for something sweet and easy to whip up, I hope you try my Gluten Free Chocolate Cake in a Mug.
