  • Do not over mix the batter. Mix till just combined.
  • Do not fill the mug more than half.
  • Once everything is done, add a tsp of water on the batter before popping it inside the microwave.
  • Start checking the cake after the shortest cooking time.
  • Do not over-cook the cake. If it’s not done when you first check it, microwave it for 10 more seconds and check and repeat.
  • To ensure the doneness carefully touch the top of the cake. It shouldn’t be gooey. In case of mug cakes also toothpick is blessed to have the first bite(kachcha or pakka). You know what I mean!! Basically you can do the toothpick test to check if the cake is done?
  • Try oil based recipes instead of butter based ones. If using butter, use melted butter.
