Individual Microwave Cobbler

Individual Low Carb Microwave Cobbler
OMG...this might just be my new favorite dessert.  I still LOVE the Peanut Butter Fudge but this cobbler is excellent for a one serving, super quick dessert.  The only even remotely unusual ingredient is the almond flour. You can find it at Trader Joes, at every online low carb store, Amazon, or even a well stocked grocery store.  You can use any flavor of sugar free preserves that you would like to change up your cobbler flavors.  I used Smucker's Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves.  I don't have a custard dish so I used a glass measuring cup, which worked out excellent.  My preserves are much runnier than the original recipe photo shows but I think I preferred it that way as it was more of a sauce so I could scoop up a spoonful with each bite of "bread".  I think this will be in the regular dessert rotation for me now.  I can't wait to try other preserves flavors!

1 serving
7 net carbs

2 tablespoons LC-Preserves or any sugar free jam
1 tablespoon butter, softened
2 tablespoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1 egg
3 tablespoons almond flour
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch salt

Spread the jam in the bottom of a 6-ounce custard dish. In a small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients with a fork until well blended. Spoon the batter over the jam. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until the cake is done. Let cool a few minutes and then invert onto a small plate. Sprinkle with a little granular Splenda or other powdered sweetener, if you like. Serve warm. 


  1. I just made this and it hit the spot. This is really really good.

    1. So glad you liked it! I don't repeat recipes very often but this is one I make whenever I crave a dessert and don't have one already made.

  2. Omg! This is sooooo gooooood! I am such a sweet eater! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Just made this and LOVE it!!! Husband like the chocolate so was wondering your thoughts of adding a tablespoon of cocoa???

    1. Sounds great! Unsweetened cocoa powder can be a bit bitter so you might want to taste the batter before cooking to see if additional sweetener needs added.

  4. Going to go make this right now!! Yum...

  5. This little recipe looks scrumptious!

    I've been making "muffins" from l.-c. book titled MUFFINS TO SLIM BY: Fast low-carb, gluten-free muffin & bread recipes to mix & microwave in a mug, by Em Elles.

    The cobbler base in this recipe is a bit like the muffins, and in fact I could simply put a little sugar-free jam into the mug before microwaving.

    Those interested in exploring ideas for cobbler desserts could buy the book or borrow it from the library.

    Wonderful post. Thanks.

  6. I love the idea of making a chocolate batter. I'd make that and use some sugar free strawberry jam. Yum! Thank you so much for repeating the recipe.
