A chocolate vegan mug cake served sliced with strawberries and cream. The vegan mug cake recipe is just so easy, stir ingredients together in a mug and microwave a minute or so. Dairy-free, refined sugar free and gluten-free.
To the mug, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cacao powder and salt. Mix these ingredients well.
Add the olive oil, milk, vanilla and coffee, if you are using it, to a mug.
Stir until JUST blended. If you over-stir, you'll make the cake gluey. Lumps are okay.Scrap the bottom of the mug to be sure no flour is stuck to the bottom.Scrap down the sides of the batter so it's mostly on the bottom.
Microwave uncovered around 1 min and 20 seconds. Depending of the mug size (and your microwave), you might have to put it back for another 10 seconds.
After the Microwaving
If you want a quick way to frost it, sprinkle chocolate chips on top while it's hot. They will melt.Let it cool for 2 minutes.Run a knife around the edges after it cools.
Either eat straight from the mug or use a knife to gently encourage it to come out.Layer it as a dessert with strawberries and cream as I did.
