Easy to make. A bit rubbery, I will leave out egg next time to see if more pudding like. I used Splenda to reduce calories which worked well. Overall I like this recipee
Yes! Yes! I have made a microwave cake before but not nearly this good. I veganized it by simply using almond milk for regular, and turbinado sugar for all the sugar. (It is the perfect brown sugar sub.) I added two tablespoons of oil, just 'cause. I also poured 2/3 cup almond milk over the topping before adding the water. The first time I made it It did not have enough sauce for me. But one way or the other it was so good. Not just a quick fix for a chocolate craving. It was good CAKE!
Absolutely wonderful! I am not a fan of nuts so I added chocolate chips instead. Wow, that was amazing. My husband and I wanted a quick cakey treat and this was just as fast as running out to the store to get something premade. Thanks so much.
