Very good and not too many calories either! I substituted apple sauce for the butter, and used 1/2 Tbsp instead of 1/2 tsp of cocoa powder. Also used brown rice flour and maple syrup.

I was really impressed by this recipe. I had no idea that actual cake (not brownie) could come from a microwave! I accidentally put half a tablespoon of cocoa instead of half of a teaspoon and liked it quite a bit. So, I think I might repeat that mistake next time. As others have pointed out, it doesn't make much though. So, I think next time I'll try making it in a mug instead of a bowl to give the illusion of more cake (and so that I can call it a microwave "cup" cake). Thanks for the recipe!

I used skim milk, splenda and extra cocoa. It was good, it satisfied my sweet craving. I would double the recipe next time because it didn't make very much. I added more milk to cool it off after 1 minute in the microwave. Not bad for how simple it was.

1.5 minutes was way too long in my microwave. The recipe needs more chocolate.

Don't be put off by the liquidy mess that the sugar milk and butter make, it works! I accidentally added 3 times the amount of cocoa.... and maybe not enough baking soda... Nevertheless it turned out great! Just what I needed!

This didn't come out right at all! I followed the recipe to a T but maybe you should specify how much exactly we need of baking soda because I could have put in too much or too little. A pinch could be different for everyone. I didn't eat this and threw it out that's how bad it was. Sorry!

Thank you! I never have eggs because my son is allergic so this is an awesome recipe for me. I doubled the recipe (but not to share!) and replaced 1T of sugar with chocolate chips and 1T of flour with oats. It was awesome!

This really satisfies the chocolate cravings in a modest serving size - so I don't feel guilty about eating it for a late night snack. I stirred in some chocolate chips and cooked it 30 seconds at 1000W.
