  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • 1-2 teaspoons orange zest (frosting)

  3. Transfer mixture with a spatula to your greased mug.
  4. Smooth out top of mixture, then microwave for 1 minute. Test with a toothpick. Texture should be soft but toothpick should come out clean. Microwave another 15 seconds if cake is too soft.
  5. Serve in mug/ bowl or carefully lift cake out of mug to serve on a plate. In the maintenance phase, add a serving of your favorite fruit on the side.
  6. For frosting: briskly stir vanilla powder with almond milk in a small bowl till well incorporated and allow cake to cool slightly before topping with frosting and orange zest. Enjoy!
