I'm sure most of you have seen the mug cake craze, but I haven't seen many which are both gluten free and vegan. My friend Dan is vegan and so obsessed with mug cake that she made a facebook page devoted to it. Dan's other facebook group is called Dan's pictorial vegan recipes and consists of step by step vegan recipes using photos, just like these ones below. Recently when we visited she showed us how to make three different variations and kindly allowed us to blog about it. Sorry about the quality, I was using my phone. First the traditional chocolate one.
Start by using 1 heaped tablespoon of margarine
Place in a microwave for 30 seconds to melt.
Add 2 Tablespoons of gf self raising flour (we used orgran)
Add a tablespoon of cocoa
Then a dash of vanilla essence
And voila a cake!
Look how awesome the texture is. The chocolate versions remind me of chocolate pudding that we used to have at xmas time.
The second variation, involves using a tablespoon of caramel, we used this one. It was added at the end, right before we microwaved it.
The third variation was my fave! This one is called Berry Almond mug cake. You start with some frozen berrries.
Add some maple syrup.
Add 1 tablespoon of gf self raising flour, 1 tablespoon of almond meal and 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Stir and mix in mug but include bowl under mug.
See why it is important to use a bowl underneath.
The hot berries go so well with this cake and the texture is fluffy just like regular cake.It is seriously one of the best things I have ever eaten.These recipes make me want to get a microwave.
