One-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake (Vegan-friendly)

Tomorrow night I will be running a class for a group of single ladies. “Cooking for one!” We all need something a little sweet and sometimes its hard to come up with the time and energy to whip up a treat when it’s just for yourself. Well…very little time and energy is required for this tasty treat! Get excited…you can whip this delicious dessert up in just a minute in the microwave or 14 minutes in the oven.

I tried the recipe in the oven and microwave. Both options work equally as well. So it is really up to you. If you have a microwave you can save some time and do it this way. If you want to make more than one (you’ll probably want to) I recommend mixing up a few to bake in a muffin tray.

This mug cake can hardly even be considered a cheat as it’s made with wholesome and limited ingredients. I adapted this recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie’s recipe. Absolutely love how it turned out. Ooooey goooey, moist, and delicious. I topped ours with SoDelicious Coconut Whip Cream  (heaven) and a little shredded unsweetened coconut. You can also add dark chocolate chunks (>70% cacao) for an antioxidant boost!
