    yo this is kinda not good??? made it and instead of becoming cake it basically boiled and then went back to batter form when i let it cool down, albeit more thick and chewy now. still smells good but i dont think im gonna eat any more because it's just... too weird and makes my stomach nauseous.

    Loved it! Cooked it for 2 minutes and 15 seconds for cake-like texture. Added a scoop of Ice cream out of the oven Yum! Might add pecans next time. Loved the convenience, nothing but a cup to clean up and the personal size.

    I think the time was wrong and you should put it in for at least 2:00 but other than that I think the recipe was awesome!

    the batter looked really good and yummy but once we baked it in the microwave i realized the recipe forgot baking powder. put about 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder in you mug and bake it for about 20-30 seconds more than it says.

    Moist and delicious! I halved the sugar and would even add less. Will definitely try this recipe again.

    Really good and turned out dense and SUPER chocolate-y, I only gave it four stars cause of the dense-ness, just personal preference.

    This was my first time trying a mug cake. This is super simple! I followed along with some of the comments and microwaved it longer, I did mine for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, and also added a pinch of cinnamon! It was incredibly delicious and easy to make. Will definitely be saving this recipe to make more often.

    It was easy to make and taste great I would reduce the sugar slightly but that’s preference
    Very Dry and crumbly add more water/butter and wayyyyyyy more sugar

    It tastes great, if you’re a super hardcore chocolate fan. I expected something a little on the lighter side in terms of chocolate. The end result of this recipe is a heavy, fudgy chocolate cake. I also cooked this for 3 minutes!

    It was my first time to make a mug cake & I got this one because it has the easiest recipe but it didn't work out! It didn't rise and it hardened like chocolate candies but not in a good way. The smell tho was amazing, but that's it.

    i really enjoyed this, it was very good. the one thing i have to say, is it didn’t rise too much and there is no way you can cook this for 30-40 seconds and get the results you want. i wanted more of the lava-y effect, so i cooked it in the microwave for 3 minutes and it turned it delicious. i highly recommend, just make sure you add a couple more minutes.

    I was hoping for a recipe that did rise up and fill the mug. Taste was fine but presentation disappointed.

    So I'll start by saying I don't really like chocolate most of the time ... but every now and then I get a Craving. And this warm gooey almost molten rich chocolate mug cake ABSOLUTELY hit the spot! Serve with milk. :)

    Have made this a few times, it's hella rich but good I swap the white sugar for brown sugar and about 1/4 cup of water, it makes it more soft and fudgy. I also addd a few white chocolate melts and cook for 45-55 seconds depending on how running I feel like it being.

    I tried this recipe for three times and it was always the same result : it was flat and gooey,and even it tasted good,was very breakable and never held its shape You forgot to add milk,egg(s) and most importantly soda ash/sodium carbonate.You should really know,what you write,so others won’t end up with the same result as I did.
