  1. I substituted honey for maple syrup and flaxseed for egg. Came out a little too crumbly and moist but the taste was still good. I also added chocolate chips. Overall success!

  2. Thank you for this recipe – enjoyed it a lot :) (I do always double the quantities of mug cake recipes though ahah, nice big mug)

  3. Thank you for sharing this recipe- I’m obsessed. I also add some unsweetened coconut chips and it’s amazing. ?

    Keeping this one for the books! I’ve made mug cakes and it’s up there. I used cacao powder bc I didn’t have cocoa, and actually forgot the baking powder so I’ll have to try it again with that, but honestly, it was great!
