Single serving chocolate lava mug cake ready to eat in just a few minutes! It’s vegan friendly and free of dairy and refined sugar with a gluten-free option as well! (Recipe and photos updated Feb 20′)
I don’t know about you, but there are some days (and nights ☺️) I just crave something chocolatey. I’m not the type to keep a chocolate bar stashed away, like some do.. hard chocolate just isn’t my idea of an indulgence, but a fudgy “baked” treat on the other hand, I truly have a weak spot for! 😋
My daughter or I will usually make a little cake or pan of brownies for us all to enjoy. However, there are days I just don’t feel like making a fuss. With two driving teens, who often have plans, there are beginning to be less times we’re all at home together. Those days a simple mug cake is the perfect option.
Mug cakes are single serving desserts that can be made in just a few minutes using a microwave. Although I have several mug cakes here on the blog, this chocolate lave mug cake is one of my faves! It’s a chocolate cake with a fudgy gooey center, and it can be ready to eat in under 5 minutes!
This cake is vegan friendly and free of refined sugar, with a gluten free option included as well! I use coconut sugar, but you could also use pure cane sugar or maple syrup. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar per cake, but as coconut sugar isn’t as sweet as regular sugar, you may need an extra 1/2-1 tablespoon if you prefer sweet cakes.
My mug just isn’t complete without a handful of fresh berries! If I happen to have a can of coconut cream in the fridge, a dollop of coconut whipped cream is also a delicious addition!
You could be digging into chocolate heaven in a matter of minutes! So what are you waiting for?! Go and get your mug cake on! ❤️🍫Print
