What Makes A Mug Cake Rise?

The first thing that comes to mind when we think about cake is its soft, fluffy texture. The mug cake is not exactly like a whip cream type,

but the ingredients will make it rise more like a flan and create a lighter texture. The dish creates unique flavor and lightness because of the use of butter

and eggs instead of oil or butter in the batter. Folding flour with a fork should also help lift the batter.

Can I Make This In The Oven?

Yes, you can make mug cakes in the oven just like any other cake. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 20 minutes.

You’ll have to watch closely to ensure it doesn’t get overly brown, mainly if you use a dark-colored ramekin like ceramic or glass.

Tips To Make The Best Chocolate Chip Mug Cake Recipe

1. Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature. This will help the cake spread evenly in the pan and bake up more evenly.

2. Watch the mug to ensure it doesn’t overflow because most plastic mugs are not meant for this much batter.

3. Make sure you mix well with a fork, lightly squeezed spoon, or whisk because anything else may result in a cake that won’t rise properly.

4. Make sure to microwave on high power for the appropriate time.

5. Make sure to use a very clean spoon, as anything else will result in a cake that doesn’t rise.
