I really liked this, especially with the little touch of cinnamon! I used a Purdy's 70% dark chocolate bar and cheated by just melting the butter and chocolate together in the microwave. Made for PAC Spring '11

This was a real treat. Very chocolate-y and quite moist and flavorful. I didn't have any frosting though, so I just sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top. I will try this again, attempting to reduce the butter amount though, so I can have it more often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Arili.

Gloppy, too eggy, and a PITA to make. (I'd also point out that if you can't get your chocolate and butter to melt without seizing in a microwave, you're doing it wrong.)

I'm sorry for the low rating because it takes the mug out of "mug" cake and takes extra steps. All ingredients are to be mixed in the mug using measuring spoons and a mixing spoon. Update: I'm sorry you took this the wrong way because this was not my intention...and it isn't a snark. I'm sorry for the low rating. I gave this 2 stars because it takes the mug out of "mug" cake and takes extra steps. All ingredients are to be mixed in the mug using measuring spoons and a mixing spoon. Update: I'm sorry you took this the wrong way because this was not my intention...and it isn't a snark. You didn't have to be rude. I now gave you 3 stars for your explanation that is geared toward the idea of 1 piece of cake instead of more servings. The recipe is listed as kid-friendly and the recipe I saw was mixed in the mug with no other bowls/pans which makes cleanup quick. I'm sure most kids don't know what a double boiler is and many adults don't know either. I know how to bake so your way is simple for me but it defeats the simplicity for which mug cakes are intended to be as far as kid-friendly (not that they can't wash the extra items you use). Respectfully, Carol
