I was so disappointed by this cake! Followed the recipe exactly and it tasted and smelled like playdough. Yuck. It wad really thick and gooey in a bad way. Would not recommend.

I made this as a treat for DD tonight and she adored it - she could not believe it was done in the microwave - just delicious.

AWESOME for a 5 minute recipe, especiallly for the microwave! My husband and I shared it and it was the perfect amount. I was very hesitant to try this, as I am a bit of a dessert snob, but boy am I glad I did. It will definitely be made again. Thanks!

YUM! I was having a chocolate attack and on a whim I figured I'd google for a microwave chocolate lava cake reciope, and low and behold, the internet answered my prayers! Poured a little Baileys over this and topped it with a scoop of ice cream. Delicious!

I was looking for a quick recipe for a midnight snack. I should have trusted my instincts and stuck with the recipe I've used for years, even if it meant more time and effort. This dessert wasn't even edible. The reviewer that mentioned how it smelled and tasted like playdough was spot on...it was absolutely horrible. My husband and son are still trying to get the tastes out of their mouths!<br/><br/>For anyone considering making this, do yourself a favor and find another recipe. This was downright disgusting. <br/>I'm not usually one to write such a negative review, but in this case I felt I had to.

A good idea in theory, but I'd use a larger microwaveable container. I used the two-cup container, a pyrex mesuring cup and ended up with a run-over mess in my microwave.

I love this stuff. If made with skim milk, it's even low fat! I halved the recipe, as it is very rich. Lately I've been adding fruit, like sliced strawberries or thawed, halved cherries, and the fruit cooks just the right amount when mixed in with the cake. It works well and tastes good even if you substitute water for the milk and coffee (especially if you're adding fruit, because the fruit adds a little more flavor), although it's better with the milk and coffee.
