For one vegan mug cake:

  • 1/4 heaped cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup almond or soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegan margarine
  • 1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract

For the topping:

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Melt the margarine in a little pot on the stove top. Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and stir well. Pour the batter into a mug. Sprinkle some more sugar and cinnamon on top and microwave the vegan mug cake for one and a half minutes.
  • Let it cool down for a few minutes. It's best when you eat it warm right out of the mug. Enjoy!
  • Note: The mug I used is around 3 inches high and 3 inches wide.


  • Please note that the recipe for this vegan mug cake only works in a microwave. In the oven, the baking time will be a lot longer and I, thus, wouldn't recommend making this mug cake in the oven.
  • The mug I used is around 3 inches high and 3 inches wide.
  • I had a few people saying that they followed the recipe and that the cake overflowed in the microwave and made a mess. It's important that you don't fill any mug more than half full. If you stick to that rule, you won't have any problems with overflow. 
  • If you are still scared the mug cake might overflow start with a minute first and then keep cooking it in 15-second bursts.
