      I used golden flax meal -- same measurement, and added 2 tsp plain yogurt for moisture. This recipe turned out beautifully. For the topping I whipped one cup heavy cream, 1 heaping T cocoa powder and 2 pkts of Splenda with my power stick to a thick, stiff consistancy. Perfect balance to the dense cake and just the right sweetness. The cake cut in half and was perfect for 2 servings. I am already making recipe 263983 South Beach Muffin, which is pretty similar and it turns out great. I imagine "add ins" would work with this recipe, too. Thanks for dessert, Mercy.

      I'm still in shock that you can pull this off - cake in a cup in a minute. Perfect for those with zero impulse control. I'm going to keep playing with this - I used garbanzo bean flour, which is a little less bitter than soy flour and will try the almond four next. Also, I don't think it needs a full minute in my microwave. (I have to tell you, watching this thing rise in the mug in the microwave was pretty ... ummmm ... astonishing.)

      Good for something in 3 minutes! Better with almond flour than with soy, I just wish it had a little more chocolate flavor.
