    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.

    What an amazing treat! It satisfied my midnight craving for chocolate. I have a gluten- sugar- & dairy-free home so I subbed almond flour & chickpea flour, almond milk, and monk fruit sugar. I tasted the dry ingredients and it needed a little more sugar so I added another tablespoon, and it came out soft, moist & absolutely delicious. . I used a soup bowl rather than a mug because it's a generous serving. I'm over the moon with this recipe!!  -  14 Jun 2017

    I'm generally an incompetent cake-maker, so this being a 'bung it all in, stir and nuke it' recipe is perfect for people like me. I misread the cocoa quantity and added 4 tbsp instead of 2 tbsp - not a deliberate tweak, and though it may have made the cake a little drier than it would have been had I not been such a numpty, no real harm was done. I cooked it in one of those mug-like microwaveable bowls from Poundland and it came out perfectly cooked and quite delicious.  -  27 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
