    I really didn't enjoy it. Maybe it just needs some tweaks or its just me.  -  15 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This cake was even better than most normal, oven-baked cake I've eaten! I did make a couple substitutions as another reviewer recommended. Egg yolk instead of whole egg, 1/8 tsp baking soda, only brown sugar, and 2 tsp of half & half to moisten. I used a fairly large mug and it took about 1:45 to cook with the center being a tad under. It was so moist, dense yet fluffy, and flavorful.  -  15 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    So awesome but add 1/2 tsp baking powder. Also if you cook 2 at once it will take about 5 minutes.  -  03 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
