5 Minute Spice Cake in Microwave

5 Minute Spice Cake in Microwave created by breezermom

Inspired by Recipe#361967, I experimented and made up this cake for the two of us. I did try it with twice as much baking soda and baking powder, reduced them both to 1/8 as the cake touched the microwave "ceiling" and started to curve down; tasted fine but sure looked bizaar. Think it needs these ingredients to get a cake texture. I doubt that this recipe can be reduced and work out. Thank you especially to debbwl and diner524 for trying to help me improve this recipe for two.

    Good taste and texture, however as I like things a bit more spicy will not add cocoa and add more spices when I make it next time. Put a small layer of icing on top, but will leave it off next time.

    Very good & easy. I made without the cocoa because I wanted a standard spice cake; I also used more nutmeg because it is my fave spice. Drizzled a butter/sugar icing, which soaked in (good in my book). This microwave cake turned out much better than a chocolate-mug-cake recipe I once used.

    I read all of the reviews before starting this and used a few tips: I made it in two small ramekins instead of a single container, upped the spice a bit and topped it still warm with homemade sugar free cinnamon ice cream. What a quick and yummy treat. Thanks hon :D
