    A very tasty and quick cake that's made in a mug. It's cooked in the microwave and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.

    My first time eating and making mug cake! Tastes different to normal cake but still nice, followed the recipe and got 1 full mug cake  -  21 Apr 2018


    Beautiful, compatible with 700 watts. Not really, "cake" but it"s a very firm mousse. I love it, could use less cocoa powder. Or I probably just have to not use unsweetened. I just find this a very nice recipe. I love it!  -  02 Mar 2018
