Microwave the Cake: – Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high power for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until the cake has risen and is set in the center. Cooking time may vary depending on your microwave's wattage.

Serve Warm: – Carefully remove the mug from the microwave (it will be hot) and let it cool for a minute or two before enjoying.
