This recipe is inspired by mug cakes. You know, those cakes that you prepare in a mug and cook in the microwave in less than two minutes. It’s so handy… when you have a microwave! So here’s my version of mug cake in a saucepan. It’s just as easy! And because, if you’re going to make a cake, it might as well be super gourmet, this one is chocolate with a chocolate and peanut butter heart. How dare anyone say that vegans only eat salad after this!
