Gluten Free Cinnamon Roll Cake

I came across this single serving microwave cake on Pinterest and I had my doubts, BUT Robby really loved this sweet dessert. One of his all-time favorite things are cinnamon rolls but having those belly issues lately that I have mentioned, has changed his diet to a gluten free one for now. As you can imagine this has been a roller coaster for me trying to meet all of his restrictive needs but that’s why I am so thrilled he loves this as I can make it in under five minutes and he gets all of his favorite flavors! Win, win!

NOTE Рthe recipe I found called for this to bake in the microwave for one minute but my cake took over one minute thirty seconds. So depending on your microwave, times may vary.

INGREDIENTS
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (use the scoop that comes in the powder)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon granulated sugar for the top
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for the top

GLAZE
1 Tablespoon butter or coconut butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon almond milk
Pinch of cinnamon

DIRECTIONS
Grease a microwave safe bowl with cooking spray. Add the protein powder, baking powder, coconut flour, cinnamon and 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Mix well. Add the egg and mix into the dry mixture. Add the milk and vanilla mixing well. Batter will be thick, add a slight amount more milk if needed. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon for the top and sprinkle over the batter. Microwave between 1-2 minutes until the middle is cooked through, you will see the edges slightly pull away from the bowl. Mix the glaze together and drizzle over the top of the cake.

Enjoy!
