For the cake batter
1. To a ~10-12oz microwave safe mug, add the milk, vinegar, oil and vanilla. Use a whisk or fork to mix together.
2. Add red food color and mix. The color should be a strong red (it will get diluted once we add cocoa powder).
3. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Add the sugar.
4. Whisk again until a smooth batter is formed (no need to overmix).
5. Microwave on the default setting for 60-90 seconds (my cake takes 90 seconds to cook fully, but cooking time can vary; see notes).
6. Let the cake cool for 15 minutes (you can place it in the fridge after 5 minutes to speed up the cooling process).
For the cream cheese frosting
1. In the meanwhile, use a fork to mix together the ingredients for the cream cheese frosting until it looks creamy.
2. Spread a generous amount of the cream cheese frosting onto the cake.
3. Serve and enjoy!
