Recipe Notes

Microwaves vary in wattage.  This cooking time is for an 1100 watt microwave.  If yours is less you'll need more time.  If your wattage is more you'll need less time.  

Also mug cakes are notorious for overflowing the one time you don't watch them.  So keep and eye until you know your mug is the right size.
