These are adorable treats and so easy a child could make them. I didn't have berry jam, so I used lemon marmalade which worked quite well. The cake was spongey and not overly sweet. The cooking time was pretty much correct for my microwave; for cooking them all at once. I forgot to grease the cups (I used coffee mugs), but it didn't matter, they came right out, onto the serving dish. I LOVE this recipe.

Wow. I must say I did not know you could make biscuits in the microwave! I agree with Chef #673444 that they could've used a bit more jam though. One thing I did to try to fix this was to cut the biscuit in half and situate it so that the jam was in the middle. Crazy as it sounds, I think this recipe could probably be modified to make "Yankee" dumplings or biscuits 'n' gravy... but that's just me. One thing I will suggest is that you make sure your microwave is 100% clean and doesn't smell like chicken like mine did, lol. I will probably give this another try, 'cause, if nothing else, I find it immensely fascinating.

I thought these were okay. There didn't seem to be enough jam in relation to bread/biscuit. Also the bread/biscuit turned a bit rubbery, maybe I cooked it too long? It was super quick and easy to make, however. It's a great idea and can be handy when you are desperate for something sweet but don't have much of anything in the house. Thank you for sharing.

This makes me look like a magician, a delicious dessert in minutes with what seems like nothing in the house! Fun!

These are so cute! My kids want me to make an adaptation for chocolate cake next time.

These are so delicious. I didn't have strawberry jam so I used raspberry jam and they turned out beautifully!
