Best Mug to Use For Mug Cakes
The biggest thing you need to watch for is making sure it is a microwave-safe mug. You do not want to have your mug to be too hot to grab and remove from the microwave.
You also want a larger mug as the cake will rise a bit as it cooks. Make sure to not have the cake overflow the mug.
How to Know When The Mug Cake Is Done
Just like with a regular cake you will want to make sure the cake is fully cooked by sticking a toothpick in the center of the cake. If it comes out clean of wet batter the cake is done. Otherwise, if you find some wet batter, return to the microwave to cook longer.
All microwaves heat a bit differently, so just know the cooking time can vary.
