  • Q: Can I use almond milk instead of regular milk?

    A: Yes, you can substitute regular milk with almond milk or any other plant-based milk.

  • Q: Can I use olive oil instead of vegetable oil?

    A: No, olive oil has a strong flavor that might affect the taste of the cake. It's best to use neutral-flavored oils like vegetable or canola oil.

  • Q: Can I add chocolate chips to the batter?

    A: Yes, you can add chocolate chips or any other mix-ins to the batter to make it more interesting.

  • Q: Can I bake the cake in the oven instead?

    A: Yes, you can transfer the batter to a baking dish and bake it in a preheated oven at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  • Q: How long can I store the leftover cake?

Recipes Tips

If you want a fluffier cake, you can add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda to the batter.

You can also experiment with different flavors by adding cocoa powder, cinnamon, or nutmeg to the batter.

For a healthier option, you can substitute sugar with honey, maple syrup, or stevia.

Make sure to use a microwave-safe mug that is at least 12 ounces to avoid spillage.

Do not overmix the batter to avoid a dense cake.

Always allow the cake to cool for a few minutes before serving to avoid burns.
