This mug cake is vegan! Yay! I didn’t intentionally make it vegan, I just get a little weirded out putting eggs in a mug cake. Turns out you don’t even need the eggs, this cake has the perfect fluffy texture.

I topped mine with coconut whipped cream- yummmm. It’s so delicious along with the spices of the warm gingerbread cake. You can find my recipe for maple coconut whipped cream here.

  1. I tried mug cakes before but i didn’t like the texture as they were so dense – this one seems light and fluffy 🙂 however, may I use spelt flour instead? If yes, does the quantity vary ?

    thanks and great post 🙂

    1. Hi Steph, I’m not sure about using spelt flour since I haven’t tried it but online I see it says you can substitute up to half of the flour with the same amount of spelt flour. If you try half or all spelt flour let me know how it goes! 🙂
