First I have to say I've tried several differant Mug Cakes and been disappointed as they've always turned out to hard to even eat. I like the ide of Mug as with only 2 of us and DH not a big sweet eater there is always so much waste in regular cakes. Well, this on is REALLY differant. I followed the recipe exactly (except for adding frosting at the end) and it came out soft, rich and wonderful. It did overflow the mug and that was a bit of a mess, so wondering if i might just cut it all in half for a smaller cake. But that said, the taste was awesome, the texture soft and a great way to sastify the sweet hunger without wasting most of the cake. Really liked this and it's so easy I'll be teaching this to my DGSs who visit often and I know they'll love it. Made for PAC Fall 2011

Oh my goodness, this was a delicious mug cake. I used a Double Fudge Chocolate cake mix, and it was positively delicious. I dusted the top with powdered sugar since I didn't have any frosting on hand. And it was a great treat for after lunch. I really enjoyed this recipe, Gadgetsmidnight. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.

This cake however was perfect! Yummy and delicious! In the past I have made two other recipes for coffee mug cakes made in the microwave and both have ended in giant messes! For this recipe I used a Betty Crocker Spice Cake mix and 1/2 an egg. I also served it with a scoop of fudge ripple ice cream! Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.

Oily goopy mess! I followed these directions to a T--- I'm an above average baker, and I was excited about trying this and instead I have this nasty hot greasy bread-like chocolate pudding in my cup. What an absolute dissappointment.

All I would recommend is that if you opt to use an egg and not a liquid substitute that you still only use 2tbsp - not half of one egg. I made a ganache using some milk chocolate I had laying around and some cream and just DROWNED the mug cake in it. So good.

These were pretty good. It seemed more complicated to make than an entire cake would be however. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
