Shopping List
    Mug Cake
  • 3 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons all purpose flour (I used gluten-free)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil (Note 2)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tall microwavable mug Topping Ideas (Optional)
  • chocolate chips, chocolate-hazelnut butter, and/or non-dairy ice cream

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Combine all ingredients, except the toppings, in the tall microwavable mug. Stir until smooth and no lumps remain. Stir the bottom corners well too, as lumps can easily hide there.
  2. Step 2: Microwave for 45 tp 60 seconds, depending on your microwave wattage. Carefully remove from the microwave. If making more than 1 serving, microwave each mug separately, as combining them will affect the time settings.
  3. Step 3: Scatter any chocolate chips, chocolate-hazelnut butter, or almond butter on top of the warm cake. Let the mug cake sit for about 2 minutes after cooking. The residual heat will finish cooking the cake and melt the toppings.
  4. Serve: Enjoy warm.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Recipe adapted from Nora Cooks.

Note 2: Avocado oil, melted coconut oil, and melted vegan butter will all work here. You could also make an oil-free alternative by substituting an equal amount of smooth nut butter, yogurt, or applesauce. It will not be as rich tasting, but it will still be tasty.

Note 3: Play around with the flavors by substituting the vanilla extract with coffee extract, almond extract, or even some bourbon.
