Valentines day is 5 days away!! This year might not involve date nights at your favorite restaurant or short romantic get away, but it can still be cozy at home with some delicious homemade dinner, dessert and Netflix.

Mug cakes are one of our favorite things ever. It is easy, quick, great way to satisfy your sweet tooth and my favorite part is that, it makes just one serving <— Portion control for the win.

Greek Yogurt instead of Cream cheese

Red velvet cake traditionally is made with cream cheese frosting. Since, we are a making a single serving cake, using just a tablespoon of cream cheese and then we end up wasting the remaining block. So, we tried substituted sweetened greek yogurt which gives the same taste as cream cheese frosting and more convenient.

Expert tips:

This cake cooks for a shorter time when compared to other mug cake recipes due to the addition of vinegar. Don’t be gravitated to cook longer.

White distilled vinegar is flavorless, so please stay away from other vinegars like apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar, wine vinegar or other types.

Stir batter until lump-free – Using a spoon, stir the cake batter until smooth and no lumps remain.

Microwaves differ – This recipe was tested in two different microwaves and it took 70 seconds in one and 80 seconds in the other.

Best eaten hot – Enjoy this cake HOT! As with mug cakes, some might dry out a little when left at room temperature.

Food Coloring – The amount of red food coloring is up to you. I tested with varying amounts, to get the dark red color you see here, use about 1/4 teaspoon gel food coloring.

Red food coloring comes in both gel and liquid. We highly suggest using only gel since the quantity of liquid food coloring that needs to added to obtain the deep red color will add additional liquid to the recipe which will result in changing it.

Skip food coloring? Absolutely! This cake is just as delicious without the food coloring.

Serving suggestion:

Enjoy the cake hot as soon as you remove from the microwave with big scoop of sweetened greek yogurt. Some mug cakes (depending on the type of microwave used) might get a little dry if left at room temperature for a long period of time.

FAQs

Is red velvet cake just a chocolate cake?

Though both the cakes have cocoa powder as a key ingredient, red velvet cake contains a very small portion of cocoa powder when compared to chocolate cake. Also, red velvet cake has an iconic velvety texture that is due to the addition of vinegar with buttermilk when compared to chocolate cake that is more tradional.

Is red velvet cake bad for you?

The cake contains a heavy dose of artificial food color to obtain the deep red hue and covered in a thick and creamy cream cheese frosting that is high in fat and calories as well.
