Chocolate Mug Cake Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Evolved dark chocolate melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

Filling Ingredients

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk best if refrigerated overnight, or at least a few hours!
  • 3 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Additional Ingredients

  • ¼ cup dairy-free eggnog we used the SoDelicious brand

Chocolate Cup Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups Evolved dark chocolate melted


For the Chocolate Mug Cake

  • In a microwave-safe mug, mix together chocolate, maple syrup, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla until well combined.
  • Add the rest of the mug cake ingredients and mix with a small rubber spatula until all lumps are gone.
  • Scrape down sides of the cup, pushing all loose batter that may have gotten stuck to the side to the bottom.
  • Microwave on normal setting for one minute.

For the Filling

  • Scoop the coconut milk solids from top of can, and discard the liquid or use for another recipe.
  • Whisk the solids together with the rest of the filling ingredients and set back in the fridge until later use.

For the Chocolate Cups

  • Take a wax-lined cupcake liner OR silicone cupcake liner(this one works best and can be reused!) and spoon 2 tablespoons of melted chocolate that might “pool” on the bottom.
  • Turn the liners right side up again, and place on a flat surface and transfer to the fridge to set up.


  • Flip mug upside down, releasing the cake.
  • Cut cake in half vertically.
  • Cut each half into 4 equal pieces (semi-circles).
  • Press each piece firmly in the bottom of a prepared chocolate cup.
  • Pour 2 teaspoons of eggnog over each piece of cake, followed by 1 tbsp of the prepared coconut milk filling, about ½" thick.
  • Finish each cup with another spoonful of chocolate, spreading it carefully to the sides of the cup to “seal” it.
  • Let set up in fridge for at least 15 minutes before enjoying!
