  • Make sure you don't over-mix the batter, otherwise you can overwork the gluten in the flour and your mug cake will come out tough and doughy!
  • For the flour, you can use white, wholewheat or a gluten-free blend.
  • To make this low fat, you can replace oil with equal amount of apple sauce or mashed banana.
  • You can substitute stevia with any other sweetener of choice.
