Start by making sure that the mug you choose is large enough, is microwave safe, and has no chips or cracks in it.
Microwave cook time will vary depending on the power of your model, so cook it for 45 seconds and then check it and add 5-10 more seconds cooking time as needed.
If you have low carb chocolate chips you could add a tablespoonful to the batter, and if you have whipped cream that would make a wonderful topping!
