Moist Eggless Red Velvet Mug Cake with an irresistilble Cream Cheese filling, ready in just 1 minute in Microwave! This is the perfect last minute treat for Valentine's Day or any other occasion.This Mug Cake features all the classic Red Velvet flavors like cocoa, vanilla and Cream Cheese. If you love its traditional flavor, you are going to love this quick effortless version!If you don't have a microwave, you can also bake it in classic oven or an air fryer, you will just need some minutes more. In this case, I suggest to use a ramekin because the most of mugs are not oven-proof.I used a 800W microwave: if you have a Microwave with higher/lower wattage, you have to reduce/increase the cooking time for few seconds; check out the top of the cake that should be dry when the cake is done (you can also check the mug cake with a skewer that would turn out clean).
