Eggless Chocolate Mug Cake
A cake with no eggs? It can be done! And it’s delicious. Fluffy, fudgy, chocolatey. This may be one of my favorite mug cake creations yet. It only needs fiveingredients. And unlike the other mug cakes, there’s not gooey outside layer.
After making the two ingredient chocolate coke cake, I realized that it is possible to make a cake without using any eggs. One of the issues I had with the chocolate coke cake was that the crumbs are a little loose making it hard to cut and eat. But if you put it in a mug, you eliminate that problem since you are eating the cake with a spoon.
So I set about making a chocolate coke mug cake. No cake mix this time. Instead I made it from scratch and hoped for the best. And it came out perfect. The cake rose unbelievably high. It almost spilled over my super oversized mug cake and so far any other mug cake I’ve made in this cup usually only rises about halfway. The cake was very fudgy yet also light and airy. It tasted very similar to the chocolate coke cake.
Like the chocolate coke cake, the crumb is loose without the egg. But since it’s in a cup and you are spooning it out, it doesn’t really matter as much.
The outside was dry rather than wet after it finished cooking. It almost looked overcooked, but it wasn’t. This cake was great and so easy to make. I also discovered that you don’t have to use coke. I tried it with Dr. Pepper and got the same result. Normally I hate Dr. Pepper, but you can’t taste it at all in the cake.

Mix all ingredients together into an oversized mug. This cake rises a lot so if you don't have a very large mug, I suggest you split the batter into two mugs after mixing. Mix with a small whisk until no lumps remain.
For one oversized mug, microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Cake should have a dry surface and knife inserted should come out clean. You may want to reduce the time for two smaller mugs.
