Looking for a sweet treat, I decided to try this mug cake to change things up from the other recipe I normally use. This was very good and quick! The only changes I made were to use coconut oil instead of olive oil (I find the olive oil flavor too strong for cakes) and I used vanilla extract instead of coffee extract. This rose beautifully and I enjoyed the light texture. Also, unlike the other mug cake I make, this one pulled away from the sides nicely and could have easily been turned onto a plate. No sticking! And no time for a pic either! Thanks for sharing your recipe DenaMarie!

Tasty and easy. I didn't have coffee extract, used about 1/4 tsp instant coffee
