How Long Does It Take To Make A Mug Cake
Less than a minute!
That’s right! It takes around 50 seconds to heat up this delicious mug cake in the microwave. You will cook the mug cake until the batter forms up and is no longer gooey.
Please note that depending on how hot the microwave heats you will find the cooking time will vary a bit.
Why Do You Need To Let Batter Soak Before Cooking
The cake batter needs to set for a couple minutes to help it to soak up the moisture and thicken it up a bit, helping it to kind of blend together better.
Then you can get the best results when you cook it in the microwave.

What Is The Best Almond Flour To Use
The big thing to pay close attention to is the most important ingredient if you ask me.
You’ll want to make sure you reach for fine almond flour for the best possible cake texture.
If your flour is not very fine you can place it in a food processor or even a blender to finely ground it a bit and that will help make a finer consistency.
Just pulse until it helps thin up the almond flour.
This is a good tip to know for any of your baking and cooking needs when you work with almond flour.
