Quick Chocolate Mug Cake

Some days you just crave a chocolatey treat. I’ve been in the mood for it all week long, but most chocolate cakes, including mug cakes, have eggs – or at least milk. This cake, based on the chocolate mug cake recipe from Table For Two certainly satisfied my sweet tooth!

The coconut milk adds an extra bit of sweetness, while the grated bakers chocolate adds some chocolatey richness. The lack of egg actually makes it a more moist cake rather than a spongy cake.

So next time when you want something sweet, but don’t want to bake an entire cake, just try out this chocolate mug cake!

  • It is great without any changes but I made it with vegan chips and one tablespoon of sugar this time and still great.

  • One of my personal favorites for an easy chocolate dessert…..delicious both during and outside of fast days.

  • This is my favorite chocolate mug cake, even outside of Lent. We make it and split the batter into two ramekins, and microwave for approximately 45 seconds. We also add in vegan chocolate chips and confectioner sugar on top. Delish!
