Teacup Cakes | Easy Vegan Mug Cakes - Vanilla Confetti Cake, Lemon Drizzle, Chilli Chocolate

Light and fluffy. Ready in one minute. Almost too good to be true.














Mug cakes are nothing new, but it's taken me a while to try them out myself. In this case, I used my set of teacups, and how cute do they look!

I've tried out three different flavours: 'chilli chocolate', 'emon drizzle' and 'vanilla confetti'.















If you own a microwave then you're just a few steps away from having these delectable treats.  Adjust the quantities below in proportion to the mug/teacup size. Enjoy!



Confetti Cake
- 2 heap tbsp self-raising flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- pinch baking powder
- 6 tbsp vegan milk (coconut/almond/soya/cashew/oat...etc)
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp sprinkles (vegan sprinkles are available to buy here)
- 1 tbsp syrup (maple/rice...etc)

Mix all the dry ingredients together first. Make a well in the middle and add all the wet ingredients. Combine to form a smooth batter. Microwave for 1 minute. Drizzle some syrup over the top and throw some more sprinkles on.

Lemon Drizzle
- 2 heap tbsp self-raising flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- pinch baking powder
- pinch grated lemon zest
- 5 tbsp vegan milk (coconut/almond/soya/cashew/oat...etc)
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tbsp oil

For the drizzle:
- icing sugar
- lemon juice
- candied lemon peel (to garnish)

Mix all the dry ingredients together first. Make a well in the middle and add all the wet ingredients. Combine to form a smooth batter. Microwave for 1 minute. Create a lemon glaze by combining equal parts lemon juice and icing sugar. Garnish with candied lemon peel.

Chilli Chocolate

Mix all the dry ingredients together first. Make a well in the middle and add all the wet ingredients. Combine to form a smooth batter. Microwave for 1 minute. Drizzle some syrup over the top and throw some more chilli flakes on for an extra kick.

  1. I came about your blog about a year ago when I was contemplating being a vegetarian. I have decided to be now, but I'm starting off as a flexitarian, even at that it has not been easy in this country called Nigeria. Partly because vegan food stuffs are expensive and I'm just an average Nigerian university student. I'm thinking of stopping and continue when I have money because my decision is for health purposes.
