Things to remember:

Make sure to follow the correct measurement of the ingredients. Too much baking soda can make your mug cake taste weird because of its chemical components.

Most stoneware, porcelain, and pure metal mugs are safe for microwave use, it’s also usually indicated at the bottom of the mug itself or the box that it came with.

Do not overcook your cake. It will make the cake too dry or have a rubbery texture. 

On the extremely rare occasion that you weren’t able to finish this super delectable chocolate mug cake (I can honestly say I’ll finish two mugs of this in one sitting 😊), you can reheat it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to warm it up. 

So, next time you’re craving for a sweet and fudgy midnight snack, try out this chocolate mug cake recipe and I promise you won’t regret it!
