    Chef #1111060's Note:

    I came across quite a few mug cake recipes. However, I was shocked with the calorie count for these cakes, so decided to make my own "healthified" version. So now, you can have your cake, and eat it, too!

      I substituted banana for the applesauce and sugar for the stevia.
      It was terrible! It was bland and gummy, even rubbery. I didn't even microwave it for the entire time!

      This was pretty good. I used whole pastry flour and 1/2 a large egg, instead of regular whole wheat flour and egg white. I microwaved it for 2 minutes and 20 seconds in a smaller mug, but it still worked out. The consistency was moist and chewy, which I liked. Other healthy mug cakes come out too dry, but this was just right. I topped it with stevia chocolate syrup (Stevia Chocolate Syrup) and had it for breakfast. It would be interesting to try different substitutions (yogurt for applesauce, cinnamon for cocoa, etc.) and maybe add fruit. This is a good recipe and I'll be sure to make it again. Thanks.

      I subbed 1 tablespoon flax and water for the egg white, upped baking powder to about 1/8 teaspoon to make up for loss of lift of egg. and used sweet'n'low to taste. and home canned plum sauce for apple(what i had on hand) it's not normal cake. but for knowing it's a healthy alternative, i am extremely happy. i actually like it better. (i'm a huge chocolate fan, love bread) i wil tryi it with egg some time, have just eaten alot recently. thank you!
