    i tried this recipe with fudge...not bad it was rather raw  -  01 Nov 2012


    Heyy Okaii I'm sorry if this is stupid but I'm only 13 but will it work without oil ? But sounds cool and very tasty  -  05 Nov 2014


    this is a fantastic recipe! what a tasty cake (or two) I tweaked it a bit and I added a pinch of baking powder and a little bit more milk, as my batter turned very thick. I divided the batter into two small bowls and 2 minutes on high power (900W) was plenty for a perfect, tasty result recommended recipe! for more ideas - next time you can add some fresh strawberries, bananas or nuts at the bottom of the dish and when you turn the cooled cake over, you have them on top of the cake! yum yum!  -  12 Sep 2013
