Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake in 2 Minuted - The Vegan Eskimo


The quickest snack you can make in a matter of minutes ! All you need is a big mug, a fork to mix, spoons to measure and a microwave on the right setting. I have tried many chocolate mug cake recipes, but always I end up using more or less minutes than the recipe actually says, and it never gives a good result. The microwave – like an oven – can cook with different results. If you stick to using a 700w setting on the microwave, or have a 700w microwave and use 100% power, then this will take exactly 2 minutes, and give you the perfect result !

After you have stirred the batter, you can optionally add a tablespoon of chocolate chips and mix in, or add a dollop a vegan nutella and stick it right in the middle, then bake!

Makes 1 big mug / jar / cup



  • 6 tablespoons white organic flour
  • 4 tablespoons raw coco powder
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt


  • 6 tablespoons plant milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon neutral tasting oil, sunflower, peanut or canola

What you will need

  • 1 big mug / cup / glass / jar
  • Spoons to measure
  • 1 fork
  • 1 microwave


  1. Measure all the dry ingredients and put in the cup or glass of choice. Mix everything with a fork.
  2. Put in the wet ingredients and mix everything really well. Make sure to mix all the flour in the bottom as well, or else you get a dry unwelcome surprise in your cake. Just mix super well.
  3. Microwave in the oven for 2 minutes / 120 seconds exactly on 700w. If you don’t have the power setting on 700w there is no guarantee that 2 minutes will give the same result. If you place the cup in the microwave off-centre, it will get more evenly baked as it spins around inside.

Enjoy !
