Here is a simple recipe of a Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake. There are times when my son comes back from school and wants to eat something sweet real quick. That’s when these little muggies come in so handy. They literally take couple of minutes to assemble and a minute in the microwave to cook. There are times when even you want a little something sweet on an impromptu basis. Nothing extravagant or time consuming…where you can control the sweetness and the quantity. So hope you enjoy making this little mug cake recipe. You could be creative and use any kind of topping that you may want…drizzle extra chocolate sauce or maple syrup or have it with a dollop of vegan ice-cream or anything that you may wish to.
I truly believe that fixed standard recipes are meant for restaurant kind of cooking where every chef and cook on the line is expected to produce the standard dishes tasting the same every single time. But that’s not what home cooking is about. Infact you don’t want the same exact taste, every single time, every single day. So use the recipe as a basic guideline and then play with it and have fun with it.
I have observed that with the same quantity of batter, the mug cakes rise differently depending on the type of mug that you use. Every mug has different width, depth and height so one can never really predict the rise of these muggies unlike the standard cupcakes. So have fun with the uniqueness of the way each of them turn out. See the pictures below. 🙂
