Chocolate Chip Cake Recipe Tips and FAQ
Mixing the mug cake batter.
Do not over mix the batter. Be sure to gently fold in the chocolate chips.
My mug cake is too dry.
If you feel the batter is too dry, you can add more low-carb milk. I like to use unsweetened Milkadamia macadamia nut milk.
Alternate way to do the topping.
Instead of adding more chocolate chips to the top, you can melt them and drizzle the chocolate over the mug cake. Chocolate lovers can also try a low-carb chocolate whipped cream on top.
