  • 20 g Dairy-free white chocolate chips or chunks (⅛ cup)


  1. Mix the margarine, sugar and vanilla together in a ramekin or mug that is around 3-inches wide. Please note baking time will vary if the mug is wider or narrower than this.

  2. Mix in the red food colouring.

  3. Next, add the flour, cocoa powder and soy milk. Mix well until you have a smooth red cake batter.

  4. Sprinkle the white chocolate chips over your cake batter.
