This totally satisfied my craving for chocolate cake! I did substitute the half & half for 2.5 Tablespoons of heavy cream & 2.5 tablespoons of water. That brought the net carbs down to only 3 for the whole delicious cake (according the site I use to track calories & carbs!) Be sure to mix up your egg well, or you'll have a white streak of egg going through it. Best eaten warm, IMO. Thanks so much for sharing.

This is good. A cross between a firm steamed pudding and a pot de creme au chocolat. To get lower carb, I used seven drops of Ezsweets sucralose liquid (instead of granular) and heavy cream instead of half and half. I added 2 drops of Lorann orange oil for a little extra flavor. I used Trader Joe's cocoa.

AWESOME!! What a great treat!! I used special dark cocoa and tweaked the recipe following the advice of a previous reviewer and used coffee in place of the 1/2 and 1/2. I also used an egg white rather than a whole egg. An awesome low carb treat. I can't wait to make it again!!

Good lord this is good... I am being super-good this week so used xylitol instead of sugar (I also halved the amount) and Kara coconut milk instead of half and half. 55 seconds was perfect and so was the finished product - nom nom nom! :o)

Oh wow, this really was amazing. Really did fix my chocolate cravings!

I did try a variation on this. I used coffee instead of half-and-half, and put in an extra tablespoon of sweetener... Though my sweetener is a cheap brand, so it might not be so strong as Splenda is. Then as soon as I took it out of the microwave I turned it out and pressed a square of no added sugar milk chocolate in the centre so it melted. So good!
