Vegan mug cake, sweet and ready in less than 10 minutes with only 9 ingredients. It is the perfect quick and delicious treat, snack, or dessert!


  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened plant milk, I used soy milk
  • 1 tbsp oil, I used canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vegan chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Add all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt) to a mug and mix until well combined.
  2. Incorporate all the remaining ingredients except the vegan chocolate chips and mix again.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and mix one more time.
  4. Cook in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, watching to make sure it doesn’t spill over.
  5. Serve your vegan mug cake immediately as a dessert, for breakfast, or as a snack with a cup of turmeric latte, golden milk, or matcha latte, or even with your avocado smoothie, vegan protein shake, or banana milk.
  6. Best when fresh, you can keep this vegan chocolate mug cake covered at room temperature for 1-2 days.


  • Feel free to use any type of sugar and oil you want to make this vegan mug cake.
  • Soy milk can be replaced with cashew milk, almond milk, rice milk, oat milk, coconut milk, or even hemp milk
  • Salt is optional, but it enhances the flavor of the vegan chocolate mug cake.
  • If you can’t find vegan chocolate chips, omit this ingredient or use some chopped chocolate bark instead. This vegan mug cake recipe will be equally delicious!
