    This recipe is delicious and unbelievably quick. A great recipe for whipping up with the kids for instant results. I use whole wheat flour and half coconut oil/half canola oil. Microwave manditory. Source unknown.

      Just made this and it was pretty good. It was more than enough for just me and I think is probably large enough to share. After reading the other reviews, I cut the microwave time down to 2:45 and I didn't find it to be too rubbery. A little chewier than a cake....maybe a cross between cake and a brownie? At any rate, the taste was just what I wanted to satisfy my sweet tooth. Add a scoop of ice cream and you're in business!

      Satisfying when you need chocolate in a hurry. I added chocolate chips to mine, then topped with chocolate sauce, ice cream, and whipped cream. It is a bit spongey from being cooked in the microwave, but I would definitely try this again. I'm not a fan of sweets so when the craving hits me I would much rather make this than an entire cake!
