Gluten Free, Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake
Updated: Mar 9, 2021
There are days when you want a quick but decadent dessert. Maybe you have unexpected visitors. Or maybe you forgot that anniversary which you promised to celebrate. Whatever the reason, you need a dessert and you need it quickly.
This chocolate mug cake recipe is just that, a decadent, delicious dessert that is ready within minutes. Make it, plate it, drizzle it with chocolate, serve it with ice cream, top it with fruits or whip cream and you have a dessert that looks like you spent hours to make.
Can you use another type of flour? Absolutely! The recipe should work well with a 1 to 1 gluten free flour blend. You may need to add xanthan gum, just a pinch, if your blend does not already contain it.
I love adding a piece of chocolate or chocolate chips to the batter so there will be a little surprise in the center when the cake is cut.
Best of all the recipe is uncomplicated and pretty forgiving. You could call it a brownie if it's fudgier than expected, whatever happens it will always be delicious!
Gluten Free, Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe
(this recipe makes 2 mug cakes)
1/4 cup cassava flour 4 tbsp cocoa powder 1/2 tsp baking powder 4 tbsp sugar 1/4 tsp salt 2 - 4 tbsp hot milk coffee (or just milk) 4 tbs coconut oil 1/2 tsp vinegar Drop or 2 of vanilla extract
Mix well, all of the ingredients in a bowl. Add more liquid very slowly if the batter needs thinning. Divide between 2 mugs and bake each separately in the microwave for about 50 seconds.
Note: I like to add chunks of chocolate to the batter before baking and once it is in the mug. This way you can create an unexpected chocolate lava cake
