There are some recipes that are here, simply because a low-carb website is incomplete ... without them. THIS is such a recipe!
I started my own personal journey into this way of eating several years ago. At the time, I didn't have a microwave. Actually ... I was living in an apartment in Mexico and the apartment came with a MASSIVE microwave ... that totally didn't work! It took up a huge amount of space and ... near as I can tell ... this was its only real accomplishment. As a result of starting down this road without a microwave, I had never tried things like the One-Minute-Muffin, or ... The Famous Mock Danish!
Both of these are recipes that exist and are handed down from one low-carber to the next ... and onward and onward. Now, it's MY turn to share this tasty treat!
Funnily enough, when I made this ... it's only the second time I'd ever made one. I have ZERO idea if this is what yours look like, when you make them, but ... this is how MINE turned out.
I SHOULD point out that the FIRST time I made it, I didn't soften up the cream cheese first and wound up with a weird chunky egg-puck. FAR less inviting than this second, warm, smooth and sweet cheesecake-like creature.
It seemed only appropriate to smear some sugar free jelly on it, as ... this whole thing is about recreating the center of those tantalizing cream cheese and jelly Danishes!
Origin Note: I don't know who originated this recipe, but I WILL say that ... it wasn't me. Because I think Kent Altena is just a wizard ... I'll link to a video of him nuking one up! 2.7g carbs
In a small bowl, microwave the cream cheese for 15 seconds or less; just long enough to soften it.
Add the egg and combine the two ingredients with a spatula until smooth.
Add the sweetener, vanilla, salt and optional cinnamon (I like it with cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg, when plain, but leave it out with eating it with fruit jelly). Mix well.
Because I'm fussy, I transfer the ingredients into a 6-oz. ramekin to nuke, but you can continue to use the same bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds (turning half way through). It shouldn't be runny, but the center should still be a bit soft, for that "Danish" feeling. May need to nuke for a further 30 to 60 seconds.
I used a spatula to pop mine out of the ramekin and placed it onto a plate, but ... again ... many just eat it right out of the bowl! Delicious hot or cold! Cover with jelly, or ... sprinkle some more cinnamon and sweetener over it.
