VeganMofo Day 31: Today's the last day of October and the last day for this year's Vegan month of food. I totally enjoyed making and blogging about Vegan food. I tried some new dishes and some new ingredients and totally loved going vegan for the whole month. I have to say I'm enjoying my morning coffee with soy milk and my breakfast cereal with almond milk. Even though I didn't like the taste, texture or the smell of soy yogurt, it works great in biryanis and rawa dosas. I'm totally in love with Almond "mozarella" cheese that melted beautifully. So all in all it's been a great month of eating and I'm already looking forward to next year's edition.
To celebrate the last day of Veganmofo, I made 2 vegan microwave mug cakes; one with banana and the other with chocolate. Microwave cakes are perfect when you want to make something fast and don't want to deal with leftovers. Also you can make 2 different flavored cakes in matter of minutes, so when the urge to have something sweet strikes, make a mug cake and enjoy!!
Recipe adapted from here.
I am fancying these mug cakes now a days... and this looks very good. Delicious!
These look so good! I can't wait to try them.Erin @ Wholly Delicious Dishes
Wish i get that chocolate mug cake rite now, will definitely satisy my sweet tooth.
Mine exploded in the microwave. Not sure why, but it tastes great! Thank you!!!
Great idea for a last minute Vegan Cake.I am usually skeptical about Microwave Cakes-but with this much yummy ingredients in one cake it can only be flop proof! Breville Smart Oven
Mine always explode in the microwave! What am I doing wrong??
Mine always explode in the microwave! What am I doing wrong
Hallena, I never had my cake explode in the microwave. But the reasons for explosion could be one of the following:** Mug too small --- cake expands after baking (microwaving), so use a bigger mug to accommodate the expansion.** Power of the microwave too high -- play around with the power level, bring it down to may be 80 and see what happens.** Microwave in installments -- check after 1 minute and see how things are going. Hope this helps :-)Pavani
I love this (chocolate) cake!! I make it gluten free and sugar free, too (with erythritol). My question is, can the recipe be adapted for a full-sized, conventional-oven cake? If so, are there any tricks to know? (Temperature and bake time, for example.)
Hello! i just found this site and I am Vegan. Sad i missed the whole month of Vegan October recipes and wonder if they are available for me to view? I'm actually the only Vegan i know, and where i live there is only a few places that serve Vegan dishes only and they are quite far from me. i realize this is an old article; still I'm hopeful there is archives for me to visit for the other 30 recipes. I appreciate your time and hope to hear from you soon with good news.
