Yum! This was so quick to throw together. I skipped the dry milk and used 2 tbsp. of skim milk.

Definitely a 5 star recipe. This worked out perfectly when reduced to one serving (not all recipes adjust properly) and love that I can adjust to any amount of servings I need and can be confident this will work. After cooking, I topped mine with some mini chocolate chips that melted nicely just before I started eating. Will definitely be making this again. Tagged during Healthy Choices Tag game where if you divide it out it is just under 120 calories per cake.

Tried 4 different recipes for mug cakes and all of them had to much the taste of egg in them, so when a saw this one with no egg decided to try it. My kids loved this one, they tried all the other recipes and this one got 3 thumbs up!! they loved it so much, they want it for dessert tonight again and with this being low cal and low fat i really don't mind them having it again today. Thanks for sharing!!

Fun! Loved that this made a batch of dry mix, so much easier this way. I've made mug cakes before that were warm and chocolatey but with 3T oil per serving, they're hard to love. Made this without the dry milk and tried with both milk and buttermilk for liquid. Saw the buttermilk tip on another recipe but didnt think it was as good. Added chocolate chips. Spongy and moist and in my opinion best with a scoop of vanilla, mint chocolate chip, or coffee ice cream. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

So good and easy. My kids love this and they can make it on their own. So far I have had it plain and with hot fudge on top (super yummy). Great for a quick fix

Wow! This one taste yummy, will not over flow the mug and is quick and easy. Fallowed the suggestion in the description for cutting down to one cake and am now looking forward to making again and next time think I will try Liszard's other suggestion of adding chocolate chips. You know I will be making this often. Thanks so much for the post.

Just made this. Followed "itsneverenough"s suggestion and used liquid milk instead of powdered milk and water. Added 1 Tbsp semi-sweet chips and topped the yummy results with a scoop of French vanilla ice cream. Now I've got to get up and make my hubby a second helping!! This doesn't rise much so making in a ramekin would work
