    YUMMY!!! Because of food allergies, I subbed maple syrup for the brown sugar (and didn't add the white sugar), used only an egg yolk, and used only cinnamon for the spice. I also added 1/8 t salt. The extra liquid required a microwave time of 2 min 30 sec. LOVE it!!!  -  01 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, but apart from that addition it was so delicious! It was really easy to make and I will definitely use this recipe again.  -  05 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It was delicious ! The only changes I made are adding 1/2 tsp of baking powder and using pumpkin pie spice (about 3/4 tsp) instead of all the spices. I served it with a little whipped cream on top. Also, I mixed the dough in a measuring bowl and divided it into 2 mugs. I will definitely make it again.  -  24 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
