When the craving hits for cake, nothing else will satisfy. But who really wants to make an entire cake? That's why mug cakes are the perfect solution! It's a single-serving cake (just for you!) made right in the microwave.


The next time your craving hits, just grab your favorite mug or ramekin and try one of these five delicious mug cake recipes!

Here are our Favorite Vegan Mug Cake Recipes:



  • 1/3 cup mashed bananas ⁠
  • 1 tbsp olive oil⁠
  • 1 tbsp almond milk ⁠
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar ⁠
  • 1 tbsp flour ⁠
  • 1/2 serving Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein⁠ by Nuzest
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder⁠
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts and/or vegan chocolate chips ⁠
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt


    1. In a mug, add in the mashed banana, oil, milk, and sugar. Mix together to combine completely and the banana is completely mashed.
    2. Add in the flours, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Make sure it’s all incorporated.
    3. Add in the nuts and chocolate chips (if using) and fold in. Feel free to sprinkle some on top too.
    4. Microwave for about 80 seconds. It's better for it to be slightly undercooked than overcooked.
    5. Sprinkle some coarse sea salt on top and enjoy!

    1. Mix everything together until well combined.
    2. Pour into a sprayed ramekin/mug and top with fall-colored sprinkles, if desired.
    3. Microwave for 60-90 seconds (less time equals a more gooey mug cake).

      • 2 tbsp cassava flour
      • 1 tbsp almond flour
      • 1 tbsp coconut flour
      • 1/2 serving Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein by Nuzest
      • 1/4 tsp baking powder
      • 1/8 tsp baking soda
      • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
      • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
      • 1 tbsp cashew butter
      • 2 vegan alternative eggs (such as flaxseed eggs)
      • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
      • 1/4 tsp poppy seeds


      1. Add dry ingredients to a mug and whisk well.
      2. Add the wet ingredients and mix until you have a smooth batter, then gently fold in the poppy seeds.
      3. Microwave on medium power for 90 seconds or until just set. Exact timing will depend on your microwave and wattage settings, so be sure to check after about 1 minute and keep microwaving in 15 second increments to prevent overcooking!
      4. Top with whatever you like! I prefer a square of vegan chocolate, or you could do a dollop of plant-based coconut yogurt to stay in the summery theme and enjoy!
