    If you're feeling clever like I was, you can decanter the batter into two some other mugs. This is a child's peter rabbit mug. I took care not to drown Peter, but as we'll see later, I definitely over filled. (Do not overfill.)

    It's best to keep the batter to the bottom two thirds of the cup.

    Microwave on full power for three minutes. I think my microwave is 800 watts. If yours is more powerful, do two minutes. You can always do an extra minute, but you can't take minutes away once it's burnt.

Tried this while talking to my dad.
Him: How do you know when it's finished?
Me: Ha when it explodes *smartass*
*Cake explodes in microwave*
Me: Crap
Cruel irony, but what I scraped out of the cup tasted pretty damn good. Thanks for the quick sugar fix tip
