20 Decadent Vegan Mug Cake Recipes

I love cake. But unless there’s an event, it doesn’t make much sense to bake a whole one.

So, mug cakes are perfect! 

These are all totally plant-based, so anyone can enjoy them. And they’re so yummy, you’d never even know they’re vegan.

Intrigued? Check out these vegan mug cakes, and let me know which is your favorite!

1. Chocolate Vegan Mug Cake

If rich, moist chocolate cake sounds good to you, you’ll love this one.

Because this 1-minute cake is everything you need to satisfy late-night chocolate cravings. 

The cake itself is wonderfully chocolatey. But the addition of vegan chocolate chips sends it over the top.

It’s so ooey-gooey, it’s practically a lava cake! 

2. Vegan Vanilla Mug Cake

This simple, easy cake is made with ingredients you probably already have in the pantry. Which makes it probably the best quick cake on this list. 

Because you don’t need anything special. Just flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, non-dairy milk, oil, and vanilla.

Mix the dry ingredients first, then add the wet, and microwave. In 90 seconds, you’re done.

How easy is that?

3. Vegan Blueberry Mug Cake

If you need a good excuse to have dessert for breakfast, this is it!

It’s cake, but it’s also basically a blueberry muffin. Though, I suppose blueberry muffins are kinda dessert-like. 

I digress.

No matter when you make it, this cake is utterly scrumptious!

It features a vanilla and cinnamon cake studded with fresh blueberries. Every bite is warm and sweet and bursting with berry goodness. 

4. Vegan Snickerdoodle Mug Cake

If I must choose between a Snickerdoodle and a sugar cookie, the Snickerdoodle will win. Every time.

There’s just something so insanely good about its sweet, buttery, cinnamony flavors. 

And this mug cake embodies that deliciousness perfectly. 

5. Vegan Mug Brownie

This decadent mug brownie is fabulously gooey and fully loaded with chocolate!

Which means that it is absolutely to die for! 

Every bite is like the fudgiest part of a brownie. And there are numerous ways to make this fit any diet, too.

So swap out the milk, flour, sugar, or fat, and make it your own.

6. Vegan Banana Bread Mug Cake

Got some overripe bananas sitting on the counter? Instead of basic banana bread, why not give this banana bread mug cake a try?

No shade to banana bread… I love the stuff! But this is a fun way to switch it up. And it still tastes a lot like banana bread. 

Feel free to add your favorite banana bread accouterments like chocolate, nuts, or cinnamon chips. Yum!

7. Strawberry Mug Cake

This berrylicious cake is like a strawberry Swiss roll in a mug! But way better because it’s filled with fresh strawberries instead of jelly. 

And like a cinnamon roll, it’s topped with sweet icing.

Honestly, you could totally eat this in place of a cinnamon roll for breakfast. It’s easier to make, and it’s healthier… sorta. 

8. Carrot Cake Mug Cake

I love carrot cake because it’s sweet, full of texture, and has a nice layer of spice under all that cream cheese frosting.

And this vegan mug cake embodies all that and more.

With every bite, your tongue encounters so many textures and tastes. It’s warm, spicy, sweet, and delicious.

9. 5-Minute Toffee Mug Cake

I know what you’re thinking, but I promise this is a mug cake.

Rich, indulgent, and delicious, it’s made with completely whole, refined-sugar-free ingredients. 

The secret to the toffee flavor is a combination of coconut sugar and cashew butter.

And the sauce? It’s a warm blend of coconut milk, coconut sugar, cashew butter, and vanilla.

10. Vegan Red Velvet Mug Cake

Red velvet is the go-to cake for romantic occasions. But while the color helps, it’s definitely down to its rich and decadent flavor. 

And these vegan mug cakes are no exception.

Each bite features the vanilla-chocolatey flavor red velvet is known for. And the white chocolate chips make it sweet and creamy.

In fact, they work so well, you won’t even miss the cream cheese frosting.

11. Lemon Mug Cake

Bursting with bright, zippy, citrussy goodness, this lovely lemon dessert is not one to miss.

There’s punchy lemon in every bite, from the cake to the glaze. You really can’t beat that! 

Or maybe you can… because its texture is also fabulous. It’s soft and fluffy and absolutely perfect. 

12. Vegan Cookie Mug Cake

Half cookie, half cake, here’s another vegan treat you won’t regret making.

It’s wonderfully sweet and FULL of chocolate chips. Seriously, it melts into every nook and cranny! 

I like to cut chocolate bars, so I get some bigger pockets in there. Just watch your tongue – that stuff’s hot!

13. Vegan Apple Mug Cake

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. So, I say it’s totally okay to eat one of these daily!

I mean… it contains an entire apple. 

Plus, it’s full of warm cinnamony sweetness. So, it’s good for your soul, too. 

14. Easy Peanut Butter Vegan Mug Cake

According to experts (it’s me, I’m the expert), this is the best peanut butter cake around.

It’s moist, fluffy, and sweet. But most importantly, it’s like a peanut butter explosion!

Top with chocolate chips, and you’re on your way to flavor heaven.   

15. Easy Vegan Funfetti Mug Cake

Regular funfetti cake is terrific.

But after a few bites, I sometimes get bored. I mean, it’s yummy, it’s just a little lackluster.

That’s why I love this mug cake version. It has all the best parts of funfetti cake wrapped in one small package. 

So, it’s always exciting! 

16. Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Mug Cake

This bright, summery, and delicious cake isn’t lemon poppy seed in the traditional sense.

But that’s okay because it’s absolutely wonderful!

Sure, it has poppy seeds and a lemony flavor. But it also bursts with raspberry and orange. 

All in all, it’s a delicious orange, berry, vanilla, and poppy seed cake. And the lemon comes in the form of a fabulous sweet, tart lemon glaze. Wow!

17. Chocolate Avocado Mug Cake

Who knew avocado would quickly become one of my favorite dessert ingredients?

It makes sense, though. Avocados are mostly made up of fat. And fat is super important for baking because it lends moisture and softness to the sponge. 

In the case of this mug cake, avocados make it really fudgy! And since they have such a mild flavor, all you taste is delicious chocolate.

18. Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake

No one’s denying how delicious cinnamon rolls are.

But unless you’re buying Pillsbury, they can be a pain to make. And even with Pillsbury, you have to wait a while for them to bake.

So, this recipe is for the impatient people out there (like me!). 

Because with this recipe, you can have delicious, healthier cinnamon rolls in just six minutes! 

19. Almond Flour Mug Cake

I always try to stick to a healthy diet. But I have a MASSIVE sweet tooth. Like… I will dream about sweets at night sometimes. 

And I could eat cake every day. 

So, thank goodness for this delicious almond flour cake!

It’s made with whole, healthy ingredients, and it can be tailored to fit any diet or lifestyle. Paleo, Keto, or gluten-free – you name it! 

20. Vegan Gingerbread Mug Cake

This cake is like fall in a cup. It’s warm, sticky, well-spiced, and utterly delectable. And it’s a whole lot easier to make than gingerbread cookies. 

So, that’s a win in my book!

What makes this gingerbread cake so special is the combination of spices and golden syrup.

Golden syrup is a thick, sweet, lemony syrup with an insane depth of flavor. There’s really no substitute, so find it online if you can!
