I'd use a really large mug, or a deep bowl would be even better. It turns out to have a spongy consistency. I loved it, but my husband didn't care for it. Great for a quick chocolate cake fix!
Sorry, but this was way too bland. I love the idea of a quick cake. but this needs a big flavor boost
Good recipe. Quick and Chocolately; a perfect match. It was a little too dense though...that pudding consistency another reviewer mentioned. I will decrease a third of the oil next time, and add a pinch of salt. This time around I didn't have any whole eggs so I used egg whites. I also used regular all purpose flour instead of cake flour. And a tbsp less of sugar. I also added chocolate chips! A little butter frosting on top and its perfect. Next time I'll try whip cream or ice cream.
