Make Your Own Cream Egg Lava Mug Cake

Feb 24, 2021by F&F

We asked Lis at Treat Dreams for a tasty chocolate recipe she really delivered with this ooey gooey vegan cream egg lava mug cake! Now that's a mouth full! 

If you have scales, it’s best to use those, but we've included cup and spoon measurements as a backup if not.

Interesting baking fact – Australian and American tablespoons are different sizes, and sets bought here sometimes have American ones (15ml) or Australian ones (20ml). To help you get the right result, we've sized this using teaspoons only.

  • 20g plain flour (6 teaspoons) 
  • 30g caster sugar (8 teaspoons)
  • 6g cacoa powder (4 teaspoons) you can use Dutch-processed made for baking
  • 1g bicarb soda/baking soda (1/4 teaspoon)
  • 1g finely ground salt (1/4 teaspoon)
  • 40g coffee or warm water (2.5 teaspoons) coffee helps bring out the chocolate taste
  • 1g vanilla extract (1/8-1/4 teaspoon)
  • 11g oil of choice (2.5 teaspoons) choose a neutral taste oil, (preferably not olive oil) vegetable, sunflower or coconut oil will do.
  • 1g white vinegar (1/4 teaspoon)
  • For the Lava Vegan Cream Egg (remove foil!)

  1. Add all dry ingredients into a mug, stir with a fork to combine.

  2. Add all wet ingredients into the same mug, stir with a fork to combine. It makes a very wet mix so expect it to be soupy.

  3. Drop your Cream Egg into the bottom of the mug.

  4. Microwave for 60 seconds and check on the progress of your cake. Our microwave at Treat Dreams takes 1 minute 10 seconds, my home microwave isn’t very strong so takes 1 minute and 40 seconds. Every microwave is different so test until yours is just right.

  5. Remove from microwave and scoop to the bottom with a spoon to enjoy your molten chocolate lava cake!

Tip! You can sub in your favourite Treat Dreams chocolates in place of the egg. Are you more of a caramel fan? Or maybe even cookies & cream? Break up some Caramel Chocolate Bears and add them instead. It’ll make a less sweet, rich, caramel chocolate.
