An easy to make single serve holiday dessert that's delicious topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
If you would like to substitute salted butter for the unsalted butter, omit the pinch of salt from the recipe.
Be sure to use a microwave-safe mug that holds at least 12 ounces (355 ml) to make sure the batter doesn't overflow while it cooks. You can also place the mug onto a microwave-safe plate to catch any potential drips.
If you want to unmold the mug cake after it's cooked, swirl the melted butter around the sides of the mug before adding the other ingredients. This will help it from sticking as much!
If your baking powder is pebbly, break it apart with your fingers or a fork before adding to the other ingredients. Any unmixed chunks of baking powder will taste bitter in the finished cake.
