      I think those who say it is rubbery or overdone need to look at direction #5 very closely!! I reduced the power of my microwave to about 80% (I have a 1200 watt) and it turned out perfect! I was really needing a sweet fix tonight and this hit the spot. Hubby said he would prefer a little less cocoa next time, and I will eliminate the chocolate chips from mine next time. LOVE that this recipe is so customizable. Nuts or caramel chips could be added if you like and would probably be very good. Overall I think this is an amazing recipe and far beats the expensive grocery store individual desserts and I didn't have to go out in sub-zero temperatures and a foot of snow to get it!

      I made this and separated it into 2 ramekins, and cooked it the full 3 minutes, and they came out like hard chocolate sponges. I should have adjusted the time since I was using 2 smaller containers. I made it again the next night, cooked them for 1 minute 30 seconds, and they came out great! The texture is not like that of a regular cake, but when you want a dessert quickly, this is perfect. I used the chocolate chips, which sunk all to the bottom and when tumped out onto a plate, made for a nice gooey & chocolatey topping on the cakes. Thanks so much for posting the recipe.

      Wow...I was desperate for something sweet today and since I didn't want a big cake sitting around in the house I decided to try this. If you like dirty socks and sponges, this is the cake for you! The flavor resembled nothing even close to chocolate. In fact, it was so strange in flavor the only that came to mind was the aroma of dirty socks. The texture - oh boy, that was another treat. It was exactly like an old dish sponge but with a little added rubberyness thrown in. This is one of the most disgusting things I've ever put in my mouth and those people giving this a rating above 2 stars must have been REALLY hungry when they ate Survivor hungry. This recipe should come with a warning: NO ACTUAL FOOD WILL COME FROM THIS RECIPE.
