It’s no secret I am a HUGE cake fan. When I weighed up the likelihood of my successfully completing Veganuary, the two things I was most worried about were the lack of cake and pizza. So far, I have avoided pizza, but I have made 2 vegan cakes. The first was a huge failure, but this Ferrero Rocher style vegan mug cake was so epic, I decided to share it! (Admittedly, it won’t win any awards for being the prettiest dessert ever, but it makes up for it in taste – I PROMISE)!

Ferrero Rocher Style Vegan Mug Cake Recipe…

Let’s get down to business, then!

Ingredients Required For a Ferrero Rocher style vegan mug cake



•2 TBSP Plain flour

• 1 TBSP cocoa powder • 1/4 TSP Baking Powder

• 1/4 TSP Baking Powder

• 1 TBSP Golden Syrup

• 2 TBSP Hazelnut butter (I used indigo_herbs)

• 2 TBSP Oat Milk (I used Oatley Barista, as I think it’s extra creamy).

• 1/2 TSP Vanilla extract


• Vegan squirty cream.


• Put all of the Vegan mug cake recipe ingredients into a microwave safe mug.

• Stir all of the ingredients together until they are fully blended. (It should look something like this)…

• Zap it for 90 seconds (900w microwave).

• Add Vegan squirty cream if required. (I added this as I thought it would be dry – I was wrong). It’s lovely and moist even without it!

• Eat! I turned my Ferrero Rocher style vegan mug cake out, onto a plate for the purpose of the photo. But it saves on washing up, if you eat it straight from the cup!

I made this cake recipe myself, after scouring the net for a Vegan mug cake recipe which used Hazelnut butter, rather than peanut butter. I love both, but Hazelnut seems more decadent, to me – a real treat. (OK, OK… Cards on the table time – I had a jar of Hazelnut butter in the cupboard, and no Peanut butter to hand).

I was expecting it to be really dry, but it genuinely wasn’t. It was genuinely delicious, and tasted just like Ferrero Rocher. I am a very happy Vegan, today!


I used golden syrup instead of caster sugar in the hope it would add a little extra liquid to proceedings – it definitely did! The Barista edition of Oatly is creamier, and I suspect this helped make the cake taste as rich and sumptuous as it did.

The cake won’t win any beauty pageants based on its appearance, but it’ll more than pass the taste test of any Ferrero Rocher fan – Vegan or not! So be sure to let me know what you think, if you make it!
