I found myself conversing with…myself…right before diving into this mini cake celebration. Which…isn’t too different from any other day hahah.

Me, party of 1? Me, party of 1? Your mugcake party is ready”

“Oh thanks, Me!!”


“Oh I will!”

I talk to myself daily; I’m rather easily entertained.

But really, I had this strong urge to just celebrate the day by adding this into my afternoon. It certainly worked and made me smile. :) I’ve actually been making this recipe often this last week! I’ve had it decked out for breakfast or an afternoon snack repeatedly, hence the decreased posts lately… Which. Let’s talk about that.

I’m still stranded at home without a car. It’s been 3 weeks since the crash :( and the car is ALMOST fixed up… That means Pesto has been with the babysitter 3 weeks too and I misss himmmmm. You’d think I’d have a lot of free time to just stay at home and bake new recipes, but no. First limiting factor is getting to the store for ingredients. And second limiting factor is…I’m just kind of in a funk. Nothing serious, just feeling unmotivated by staring at the same walls every day. I’ve got a nice routine of work, chiropractor, bike, sleep, but doing the same thing over and over without my car or dog is just sad. Plus I’m still in a lot of pain so it’s hard to really sit at a computer and do anything other than laying on my bed with a laptop to watch movies. Meh.

So sorry about the laziness. It’ll come back, I swear. I can feel things surging with this vegan toffee mugcake!! I’m also working on a load of recipes to release at once, so it’ll all hit you like BAM!! Don’t pass out please, I’ll try not to hit too hard.

I have been switching up the flavors here and there since the recipe is so simple, but I just love toffee the most!! This stevia makes it so easy to add flavor. I topped my personal cake with vanilla soy yogurt, a peanut butter drizzle (2 tbsp crazy Richards peanut butter powder, 2 tbsp water, and stevia drops – discount code “pbeechie” gives 10% off, coconut banana Too Sum Foods bar, sliced banana, and shredded coconut. Such a tasty combination!

I love the fluffy texture and simplicity of this vegan toffee mugcake recipe. Give it a go and let me know what you think!!

    I recently discovered the magic that is mug cakes and I am in. Love! The problem is that clean, or even gf mug cake recipes are seriously lacking! I definitely want to give this one a try-I’ve never had toffee anything! Thanks for sharing (:

      Yay glad you’re happy to see this kind of recipe! :) I understand that frustration of trying to find healthy mugcakes that aren’t dry/Styrofoam or taste bad haha. Hope you like it! I’ll be posting more flavor varieties soon.

    I like it. This didn’t taste anything like toffee, but it was SUPER easy and tasted pretty good for a 60-second mug cake. I needed to add salt though.
