Mug cake!

Cake inna mug is my new favorite thing. It's so quick to make that I prep little jars of dry ingredients to take to work (they'd make great gifts too), keep wet ingredients in my desk drawer, and nuke mug cakes for myself whenever I need an afternoon pick-me-up. Since the original recipes include neither egg nor butter, they're super-easy to veganize with your favorite non-dairy milk.

Vanilla mug cake, based on this recipe:

4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
5 tsp sugar
.5 tsp baking powder
1 pinch salt (or omit entirely)
4 Tbsp unsweetened non-dairy milk (could also use vanilla-flavored if you want the cake to be SUPER vanilla)
2 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate mug cake, based on this recipe:

4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
5 tsp sugar
.5 tsp baking powder
1 pinch salt (or omit entirely)
4 tsp cocoa
5 Tbsp unsweetened non-dairy milk (could also use vanilla-flavored and omit the vanilla extract)
2 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix dry ingredients in your microwave-safe mug with a fork, add wet ingredients, mix well until smooth (making sure to get in all the flour around the bottom edge), add add-ins. My favorite add-ins for the chocolate cake are crushed peppermint candy or a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter. For the vanilla cake, try chocolate chips or raspberry jam--or both. Then nuke on high for about 70 seconds or until done. You'll need to do a few to test your microwave and see which power setting and timing work best. It's a terrible sacrifice, making and eating all those test cakes, but you'll manage to cope somehow.
