Vegan Red Velvet Mug Cake



I’ve been making my vegan chocolate mug cake quit a lot over the last few months but I was in the mood for something different. One of the most popular flavours right now would have to be Red Velvet.  I decided to find a vegan version using common ingredients and of course no egg. A whole egg in one mug leads to rubbery cake. I found this recipe through but the original called for almond and chocolate extracts as well, which I didn’t have on hand. I added a little extra vanilla instead, and using my chocolate mug cake recipe as a guide for conversions, I came up with this recipe. It bakes up nice and fluffy after about 95 seconds in my microwave 🙂 I’m not vegan so I made regular cream cheese icing and used it as a dipping sauce for bites of cake. Yummalicious!

Vegan Red Velvet Mug Cake

3 tbsp flour.
2 tbsp + 2 tsp sugar
1 tsp cocoa

1/16 tsp baking soda
1/16 tsp salt

2tbsp + 2 tsp milk of choice
1/8 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp red food coloring
1/4 tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients, add wet ingredients, mix until smooth. Microwave for about 90 seconds and enjoy!
