GF/SF Italian Cream Cake for 1 (THM S)


I won’t soon forget the first time I tried this unbelievably delicious dessert. I was in such shock at how good it was that I had everyone in my family taste it! 🙂

This delightful cake for one is not only sugar free but it is also gluten free.

And as much as you might think you’re going to eat it all yourself I must say that you may rethink that half way through.

This dessert is rich, y’all! RICH… and sooo good!

I didn’t create this recipe so I can’t take the credit. I can only take the credit for sharing it with you as well as the above picture.


‘Trim Healthy Mama’ Italian Cream Cake MIM (Muffin in a Mug)

1 egg

1 1/2 Tbsp golden flax meal

1 1/2 Tbsp almond flour

1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

1 Tbsp chopped pecans

(You can save a little coconut flakes and pecans for the topping or if you’re not watching your weight add some more seperately 😉

2-4 tsp Truvia depending on what you like

(I used 3)

1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder

1 Tbsp coconut oil


1. Stir all ingredients except coconut flakes and chopped pecans. When completely mixed add the coconut flakes and pecans. Stir.

2. Pour into a greased microwavable bowl, mug, or individual size ramekin.

(I never grease mine and I do it in the microwave. It comes out easy)

2. Microwave for one min OR bake at 350° for 10-15 min.

3. Top with icing


Two Tbsp cream cheese

1 tsp butter

1 Tbsp 0% fat Greek yogurt

  A dash of vanilla

& sweetener to taste.

(I use 2 1/2 tsp Truvia)

    Hi Kristy!
    This muffin is amazing! Thank you for posting the recipe.
    Have you ever tried to make a dozen of these in the oven? I’d like to make more at once and am wondering if just multiplying the recipe will work 🙂

      Hi Deb!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! I’ve never made a dozen at a time in the oven. If you do I’d love to know how they turn out! 🙂
