    This turned out great. I followed the recipe to the exact measurements. (As far as sugar goes I added the 2 plus a bit more)I added a few chocolate chips to mine. I had to adjust my cooking time because of my cup and microwave. But all in all, a great recipe for a little treat.

    It turned out fine, but I’ll reduce the cocoa powder next time. I found it too bitter Otherwise, it’s a lovely recipe 👌🏾

    used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, chocolate chips instead of nutella, self-rising flour, and 2 tbsp sugar turned out slightly spongey and note to self: the coconut oil freezes immediately after putting in the milk

    Fantastic! My mom is allergic to Gluten so we used GLUTEN FREE flour and it was light ans fluffy :) (usually when we try Gluten Free desserts they are slightly heavy)

    If you like chocolate, you’re going to love this. I would back off the cacao powder, and I’m a chocolate lover. Don’t pass up the opportunity to add the hazelnut spread. Really clever recipe.

    I microwaved it for 1 minute and it turned out amazing I will be making this over and over again to help with my cravings. 😍

    I had to cook it for 55 seconds longer in my microwave. The batter itself isn’t very flavourful, would be fantastic with Nutella if i had any.

    Amazing! It wasn’t that sweet or chocolatey for me so I added more of both but everyone liked it!

    The texture is great 😍 I put just a tablespoon of sugar, and the cake turned out a little bit bitter; so, I recommend to do as the recipe says

    Really good recipe! I added a little vanilla extract and instead of the hazelnut spread I dropped a piece of milk chocolate into the batter! Topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel drizzle! So good!
    Not moist as i aspect

    Omg, that little mug cake was amazing! Perfect for my late night chocolate cravings and the idea with the hazelnut spread inside is so delicious! A wonderful alternative to a huge whole cake! I absolutely love it, thanks for sharing!

    This was fabulous! I found that 90 seconds worked perfectly in my microwave. The cake is moist, rich, and delicious. I took the advice of some of the reviews, adding a third tablespoon of sugar. I'd like to try different "fillings" like chocolate or peanut butter chips, or maybe even cherry pie filling and whipped cream. I'm definitely making this again!

    Great!! Instead of chocolate spread I added a chocolate piece in the middle and whipped cream on top!

    Delicious! Made without chocolate spread and substituted with choc-chips and all vegan ingredients and it turned out beautifully. Also made it gluten free and worked a charm

    It is great! Very moist. Used a smaller amount of sugar and it's not to sweet! I am adding frosting. Instead of Nutella I added sweetened coconut, it turned out great!

    I did it with 3 tbs of sugar and it came out so good! It didn't overflow from the cup and it came out nice and moist.

    It was really moist and tasted great. I will do this again. Loved it. It could be better if the instructions on how long it takes to microwave were more clear.
