Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Mug Cake

Mug cakes, man. I resisted them for a long, long time. Because – yup – just as I suspected, they are way WAY too easy to make. And consume. Possibly daily.

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Mug Cake recipe - Just 3 minutes from sweet tooth attack to bliss! Utterly delicious whether you're vegan or not. (I affectionately call this "tea cup cake" because it's a petite version that makes just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth without feeling like I went overboard.)

Seriously. If you’ve got a sweet tooth attack and three minutes, this is going to fit the bill just fine. And you don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy this Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Mug Cake. Because trust me – it’s plenty moist, decadent, and just plain delicious without the egg, cow’s milk, or butter. (Kind of perfect for when you’re short on groceries, too!)

Totally divine with or without the chocolate toppers.

 

I adapted my recipe from this one on Kirbie Cravings, swapping out the dairy milk for almond milk and replacing the sugar with pure maple syrup. The biggest change I made was to halve the recipe – I found that this version produces just enough mug cake to satisfy my sweet tooth without going totally overboard. It fits perfectly into my Fiestaware teacups, so I actually like to call it “teacup cake.” Except this cake is not dainty, my friends. Especially with a bit of chocolate sprinkled on top. It’s actually kind of pure grubbin’.
