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.

Mercy, I have to confess I did not believe a cake made with soy flour would taste good at all, but changed my mind as soon as I tried your recipe! I still cannot believe how delicious and soft this cake is! I unmolded the slightly cooled cake on a dish, surrounded it with slices of fresh peach and decorated with whipped cream--heavenly! I wonder what the result would be if I put a square of bitter-sweet chocolate inside the raw dough%u2026 I bet I could fool everybody into believing it's regular molten cake! I'm going to try this trick on my next dinner party.

This is great! I used almond flour and 1 1/2 tbs cocoa. I'm on a low carb diet and was craving something chocolate, this really hit the spot! Thanks!

this was pretty good, even though my first attempt was pretty gross - i forgot to vent the plastic and when i got done cooking the plastic sucked down into the cake and smushed it flat! oops... 2nd try worked pretty good, but i did change it a little. used 1/2 soy and 1/2 oat flour, and added some vanilla and extra splenda. next time i'll add more cocoa too, for taste and color, and maybe try the almond flour instead of the oat. i'm a little leary of all soy flour, i think it tastes like dog food. will definitely make this again but i want to tinker w/ it a little. thnaks mercy!

I don't want to rate this because this was my first attempt at soy flour, and I think I just didn't like that flavor. But the recipe worked fine in the microwave so thank you anyway!
