Gluten-free & Low FODMAP Angel Cake in a Mug

Got a minute?  Great, then you have time to make this cake! 🙂

I love single serving dessert recipes…and there is nothing quite like a dessert fresh out of the oven!

I whip up my 1 minute brownie in a mug recipe whenever I (or someone in my family) need(s) a quick tasty warm chocolate goodie. But this week,  I decided to try my hand at making an angel cake in a mug. And voilà…here it is!

This little cake is worth celebrating!  And, it would make a great treat for any of your favorite low FODMAP or gluten free friends!

I used Trader’s Joe’s all purpose gluten free flour to prepare this angel cake, baking powder, an egg white, granulated sugar, vegetable oil and almond extract. Simple and yummy!

I topped the cake with a few sprinkles…because, <FACT>: Sprinkles make everything a bit more fun. 🙂

Low FODMAP Angel Cake in a Mug

  • 1 tablespoon canola or grapeseed oil
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • Sprinkles, if desired (choose gluten free if following GF diet)


  1. In mug, add ingredients and mix with fork until mixture is smooth and creamy.
  2. Scatter a few sprinkles on top of cake mixture, if desired.
  3. Place in microwave for 45* seconds or until cake tester comes out clean. Cooking time can vary due to the size of the mug you use and power of your microwave. *Check on cake after 30 seconds and cook in 5-10 second increments until cake is cooked through.

    Thank you for this recipe! I’m always looking for small batches, so I don’t eat too much. 🙂
    Thank you for all your posts and the time you spend getting them together for us FODMAPS people!

    Oh my goodness…I can’t wait to try this!!!
    I love Anglefood Cake….but never eat it.
    I did have a bit of a gluten free one not long ago, but it was WAY too sweet, and had some ingredients in there I couldn’t pronounce…ick. But someone meant well, and technically I could eat it, so I had a slice. disappointment. (they never knew *wink*)
    I rarely eat deserts, but to have a little treat now and then is we…a nice little treat.
    I’m excited to venture out and try things like this.

    I used to have a recipe for a gluten free…and it was low FODMAP… microwave bun, you made it in a ramikin…just a little over a minute.
    it was very quick, easy, and pretty darn good. I can’t find it anywhere.
    If you come across one…. just a thought.

    Thanks again Kate…you’re the best.
