⭐The fun thing about this simple dessert recipe is that you can customize it to your liking. You have the freedom to customize your dessert with your preferred toppings, such as juicy fresh strawberries or a delectable drizzle of melted chocolate.

⭐If you happen to be someone who enjoys dark chocolate, one suggestion is to consider swapping out the regular cocoa powder for a darker variety.

⭐To add a unique twist to your quick dessert recipe, don’t hesitate to try out different types of flours, such as almond flour, oat flour, or even a gluten-free blend.


⭐It is best served warm or on the same day. It tends to get dry the next day. You can store the cooked mug cake in the fridge, while you reheat for few minutes, I found that it turned ok but gets dry later.
