How do you make a mug cake less spongy?
Even if your recipe calls for oil, I recommend using melted butter instead. Butter gives the cake a lighter and fluffier texture than oil will. The unfortunate rubbery texture of some mug cakes usually comes from either too much oil or from overcooking the cake itself. Most recipes call for some sort of milk as well.

Is it safe to put a mug in the oven?

Do Mug Cakes work?
Microwave mug cakes are not as good as real cakes. But they are awesome in a different way: You can make them fast enough to satisfy an emergency homemade treat craving without an oven, and eat them in their entirety without feeling comatose afterward.
How do I bake a mug in the oven?
Bake the mug in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°F. Remember to place the mug in the oven before it heats up and leave it in until the oven cools completely so there won’t be any cracks. You can choose to bake the mugs twice to really set in the Sharpie drawings. Care and wash.
Why do cakes get chewy?
The reason why a cake gets rubbery is that the overmixing of flour activates the gluten. It makes cakes hard instead of the lovely soft spongy texture we associate with a good cake. Gluten is a protein that gives baked goods firm and elastic structure but overdoing it can mean a chewy texture, and that’s no good.
Can I use mug in microwave?

How do you remove a mug cake from a mug?
Remove the mug from the microwave and let the cake cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove the paper liner and still-warm cake from the mug and invert the cake into a shallow bowl so the plums are revealed. Discard the paper. Serve the mug cake warm with a dribble of cream or a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
