    The flavor was great and tasty, but the cake was a bit too crumbly for me.

    Turned out perfectly. I'm not the best at making cakes but this was easy, quick, tasty and less messy. Everything from the taste to the texture is perfect. A must try.

    It’s was really good but very crumbly. I added a small bit more milk though because the batter looked dry, but since it’s a wet ingredient I doubt that was it.

    Did not rise and was very dense and too sweet

    Ehh. Probably a good dorm room recipe, but even the magic of cocoa didn't quite make it work as a dessert. Fun to make, though, and promising as a concept to play with!

    Super easy and quick to make. 2.5 minutes came out a little dry for me so I guess 2 minutes would be just right. Great recipe for lazy people like me haha. I didn't have any vanilla essence at home so I used a sprinkle of nutmeg powder instead.

    my 14 yr old son says: "the cake was nice and moist, tasty. perfect when you've run out of ready-made sweets at home!" you know your kid has watched too many cooking shows when he adds "wish we had a blast chiller so i can eat it right away - its hot!"

    It was delicious with a scoop of ice cream and a little chocolate syrup. just perfect for a girl that lives alone. I only used one and a half tablespoons of cocoa powder.

    It was ok. 2 minutes was enough time. I put ice cream on it to give it because it seemed a little dry.

    Delicious. Mine was very moist unlike other reviews. Perhaps they microwaved too long? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Was perfect with cream on top ☺️

    If you want to make this, cut the salt waaaaay down! The recipe is easy enough, but the salt is over powering!
    Followed the recipe, but i did substitute oil with butter. After I made it I forgot that my butter was salted so it turned out more salty then it should be.
