    Donna H's Note:

    This is great for those times when I have a chocolate craving that just won't go away. It's quick, easy and makes a very small portion. I've tried it with semi-sweet chocolate chips, can't wait to try it with peanut butter chips and white chocolate chips. Great for an afternoon snack for the kids and it's simple enough that they can make it themselves.

      My 3 years old ask if we can make chocolate cake after dinner. I did a quick search and settled down on this recipe. I add 1/2 tea spoon of baking soda,1/2 tea spoon baking powder and juice from half of lemon as recommended in other review.. Mix liquid ingredients separately and then add all the dry ingredients. Cake texture was very light. Next time I would add extra half table spoon of sugar. Not sure if I would add more Coco, mine was pretty intense already. Chocolate syrup might work better.

      What a disappointment!! I really wanted this cake to be delicious, but vanilla ice cream couldn't even save it! I found the cake's texture to be good (took another reviewer's advice and added baking soda and powder) but the flavor was terrible. not sweet enough and needs more chocolate! I would also recommend using a medium size bowl as my cake batter overflowed my cup all over the microwave!

      This was ok. I think I was just expecting so much more from it based on the reviews. I did not find the consistancy to be very cakey, it was almost rubbery. The flavor left a little to be desired as well, not very sweet or chocolately, tasted mostly like flour. Sorry, this just did not do it for me, I guess there just isnt a substitute for just making a real chocolate cake.
