Of all the more recent baking trends, mug cakes are by far my favorite, as they combine two of my favorite things: mugs and cakes. And when you only have to use one dish (and that dish is a cute mug) to both cook and serve it, it makes cleanup extra easy too. I'm always on the lookout for yummy treats that are not only delicious, but also healthy and preferably vegan, and this sweet potato chocolate mug cake from TikTok is a total game changer.
TikTok user @wholesomehedonista has done it again with yet another mug dessert that has us running straight to our kitchen. Not only does the sweet treat make your mouth water just watching, but it's healthy and vegan to boot. And with Justin Bieber singing "Yummy" in the background, you can think of nothing else.
To make the cake, simply add cocoa, coconut flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt to your favorite mug and stir. Add the inside of about a half of a sweet potato, a drizzle of maple syrup, some vanilla, and almond butter, and combine well. Toss in a few chocolate chips and microwave for 1-2 minutes. Is that a drizzle of almond butter at the end we see? Garnish with whatever you like.
