Sometimes, inspiration just strikes.

I was long over due for some play time in the kitchen. I was in the mood for something sweet… warm… decadent…. oh, and low calorie.

I’m just glad inspiration came in time for What I Ate Wednesday.

So today, I’ll be featuring What I Ate for Dessert ๐Ÿ™‚

It took trial. Error. And lots of dirty ramekins. But I did it! I made the recipe for a single serving, but you could easily double it or triple it. Just note that the microwave time is for one serving!

Almond Cake for One

  • 1 1/2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp pureed pumpkin
  • 1 tsp egg white
  • 1 tsp soymilk (or other milk)
  • 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 drops of almond extract (Sub in vanilla if you must!)
  • Dash of salt
I mixed everything in one ramekin, and then transferred it to a new one that was sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Then I popped it in the microwave for 45 seconds, and voila! A dense, sweet, rich, cake. All for me.

This lovely little cake has just 75 calories, 1.5g fiber and 4g protein. Beat that!


All. For. Me.

It’s a good thing I could share this, because all of my other eats have been exactly the same. Cake batter yogurt bowls, salads with super creamy hummus, and Trader Joe’s Asian Stir Fry. Lame. I know.

Do you ever make single serving desserts?
