Is there anything better than a mug cake? A dairy free mug cake? No seriously, being able to make a cake in two and a half minutes is a deal breaker when you have children in the house. Having children with dairy allergies usually means treats are either expensive or not available. So I decided to start making my own! Dairy free cakes taste amazing and I will always make them dairy free from now on whether I have a child with an allergy or not. They always come out so light and fluffy! I love mug cakes, well, I love cakes in general and I’ve become an avid baker in the house. I love experimenting with flavours and colours and it’s the perfect activity for children to get in on because it’s so damn simple!
There are loads of delicious microwave recipes to try! The breakfast flapjacks look amazing! I might have to try those myself. I’m a sucker for a quick microwaveable comfort food!
What you need
- 4 tablespoons of self raising flour
- 4 tablespoons of caster sugar
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of soya milk
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- Dairy free chocolate bar (broken up)
- And obviously you need a microwave
- Add your self raising flour, caster sugar and cocoa powder to your really big mug and mix.
- Now add your soya milk, oil and the egg and mix.
- Mix until you have a smooth consistency.
- Now add in your broken up dairy free chocolate pieces and marshmallow.
- Microwave for 2 minutes
How mouth watering is that photo though!
Now you can add your sprinkles!
If your craving a bit more chocolate then drizzle some choc shot liquid chocolate (it’s dairy free!) over the top too!
Do it, there’s no judging here. I mean, come on.. look at the size of the mug I use for our mug cakes!
This mug cake has become a firm favourite in our house. What’s your favourite mug cake recipe? You haven’t lived till you’ve made a cake in a mug in literally two and a half minutes!
