    WiGal's Note:

    Inspired by Clickety Click Barber Tricks Most Amazing Chocolate Cake in a Cu, I experimented and made up this cake for the two of us. I did try it with twice as much baking soda and baking powder, reduced them both to 1/8 as the cake touched the microwave "ceiling" and started to curve down; tasted fine but sure looked bizaar. Think it needs these ingredients to get a cake texture. I doubt that this recipe can be reduced and work out. Thank you especially to debbwl and diner524 for trying to help me improve this recipe for two.

      I have to admit I was skeptical of cake in the microwave, but this turned out great. It is a moist cake similar to the way a self-saucing pudding cake turns out (without the sauce). I made exactly as written. The spices were just right. Delicious served very warm (I only cooled about 5 minutes) with some ice cream. Like a brownie sundae! Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

      Wow!!! How quick is this cake? I made this as written, but instead of a 4 cup dish, I used to ramkins, that I buttered before pouring in the batter, then I cooked for 2 minutes on high and that worked perfectly!! The only other change I made was to use 1 1/4 teaspoons of both ginger and cinnamon. Next time I would use 1 tsp of ginger and 1 1/2 of the cinnamon, as this was quite spicy for a cake. Thanks for sharing the quick dessert recipe!!! Made for 123 Tag Game.

      This is a great cake. Even if it's bake in the microwave, the texture is great. The cake is moist. And the taste is very good. It's a bit too sweet for me. So I'll use half sugar next time. Thanks WiGal :) Made for Holiday tag
