Understanding Mug Cakes

Spreads: Experiment with different spreads like peanut butter, cookie butter, or fruit preserves.
Toppings: Enhance the mug cake with toppings like whipped cream, chocolate ganache, fresh berries, powdered sugar, or chocolate syrup.
Chocolate Chips: Add chocolate chips to the batter for an extra burst of chocolatey goodness.
