Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: 2 Chocolate Mug Cakes (2 Servings)
Needed Kitchenware: Mixing bowl, 2 microwave-safe mugs, microwave
  • 6 tbsp soy milk, almond milk, or macadamia milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, vegan butter, or almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 8 tbsp gluten-free flour, all-purpose flour, or oat flour
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar or granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder or carob powder
  • dash of salt
  • 2 tbsp vegan chocolate chips or carob chips
Recipe Directions


  • Combine all the ingredients, except the chocolate or carob chips, in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour batter evenly between 2 mugs.
  • Now stir in the chocolate or carob chips in each mug.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds on high. (Optionally, you can bake the cake for 18 minutes at 350°F or 200°C).
  • Let the mug cakes rest for 10 seconds and then microwave for 2 more 30-second intervals. Check for doneness with a toothpick - if it comes out clean then you know it's done. If your microwave is weaker, you might need another 30 second interval.
  • When done, allow them to rest for 1 minute and then top with your favorite toppings! Ideas: fresh fruit, powdered sugar, vegan marshmallows, ice cream, or sorbet!

If you have a kitchen blow-torch, use it to caramelize a marshmallow topping as-shown in the photo.

If you like your desserts sweeter, add another 1 tablespoon of sugar.
