how to make a one-minute microwave cake?

Making a microwave one-minute cake is as easy as mixing the ingredients in a mug and popping it in the microwave. But I have some tips and tricks to make this chocolate cake extra delicious.

Mix all of the ingredients in the mug; no need to use other bowls. But use a BIG mug; you will need room for stirring. Start by mixing all powders first, mix well, and ensure no flour lumps.

Then add the liquid ingredients. The baking soda will foam at the beginning but do not worry, keep mixing.

Tips and Tricks

  • I like to use chunky almond butter, but make sure your almond butter is not dry. Almond butter is the fat in the cake. So the richer your almond butter is, the better.
  • I like to add a big piece of dark chocolate in the middle of the batter, but you could also add chocolate chips to the whole mix.
  • Also, this one-minute chocolate mug cake recipe calls for one tablespoon of sugar and one tablespoon of maple syrup. You could do two of each or just two tablespoons of sugar.
  • It is important that you use good ingredients, good cocoa powder, and good chocolate. The better the chocolate, the richer the chocolate cake will be.

How to serve your vegan microwave cake

I love to serve this mug cake with whipped coffee (Dalgona coffee), which consists of whipping equal parts of instant coffee, sugar, and water. But if you prefer dairy-free vanilla ice cream o vegan whipped cream.

How to make coffee whipped cream

There are three basic methods for doing this whipped coffee topping for the chocolate cake. One is to whip it by hand; the other is to use an immersion blender with the whisk attachment or use a mixer ( or stand mixer).

For me, the fastest method to prepare the Dalagona coffee is with the immersion blender with the whisk attachment or even a handheld milk frother.
