  • 2 Tablespoons All-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar (I used caster sugar)
  • ¼ Teaspoon Baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegan butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Plant-based milk of choice (I used soy)
  • 1 Tablespoon Chocolate chips or chunks


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F if baking in the oven (highly recommended). 

  2. Add the flour, cocoa powder, sugar and baking powder to a small bowl and mix well.

  3. Add the vegan butter and cream everything together until smooth. The batter should look like chocolate buttercream frosting.

  4. Add the plant-based milk and stir again to make a thick batter. 

  5. Fold in your chocolate chips.

  6. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. If using the microwave, fill your mug up no more than halfway and bake for 45-60 seconds.*

  7. Leave to cool for 2 minutes before enjoying.

Recipe Notes

  • Baking time will depend on your microwave settings so start at 45 seconds and bake longer if needed.
  • Serve alone or with vegan whipped cream or ice cream.
  • Eat immediately.
