    This didn't go well for me - it was not good  -  02 Sep 2017


    Made it exactly per the recipe (using vegetable oil) in a normal sized mug, at least normal in the UK. Worked absolutely perfectly, no problem with spillage or anything. I served it with chilled creme fraiche and it was delicious  -  13 Jul 2017


    This cake helped me out of a dire situation today. I was DESPERATE for chocolate cake, but as I'm the only chocolate lover in the family I needed something small. Not that I'm incapable of eating an entire two layer fudge bomb, but I was afraid I'd get caught in the act and would have to live with the shame. This was just what I was looking for...fudgy goodness in a sane quantity. I made it in a smallish bowl instead of a mug and was glad I did. If you have a large jumbo mug it should work, but it would have spilled over any of my regular ones. I added a bit of cinnamon and a handful of chocolate chips, microwaving it for about 2 minutes and 15 seconds, opening the door and checking a few times during the last 45 seconds or so. Even with all that checking it still turned out perfectly!  -  08 Oct 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
