Red velvet mug cake

A Red Velvet Mug Cake is a single-serving cake that can be made quickly and easily in a microwave-safe mug. This cake is a variation of a classic chocolate cake with a vibrant red color and a slightly tangy taste that comes from the use of vinegar and buttermilk in the batter. The cake is topped with a simple cream cheese frosting that complements the tangy flavor of the cake and adds a creamy, indulgent touch.
