Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake

This is one of my favorite dessert recipes because it’s so quick, easy and fun to make. Treat yourself with a single serving of moist chocolate cake that you can whip up in only five minutes and even eat in the same container that you cooked it in! If you want to make multiple servings or one larger cake, simply use the same ingredients in larger portions.
