Oh dear!
I just thought: "Well, reports say it's not fantastic, but it's pretty good......and hot......and I'd bet that a dollop of homemade ice cream would really make it delicious!"

I'm DOOMED.....

i made it too! made mine with skim milk and coconut flakes. also, a healthy shake or seven of colorful sprinkles. mine overflowed a little (which i attribute to the soy milk) but it rose fine and came out of the cup with a few good shakes. i also made some pudding (with soy milk Lips sealed, it didn't work) to go with it. overall, the "cake" is very rubbery. with a good sauce and trying no to think of it as a "cake" this little diddy is a winner. i'm so glad you shared this post with us!

A friend told me about these last month. I made one with chocolate in the middle because I didn't have chips, but must have got the quantities wrong because it was pretty inedible. Too solid in some places... I did take a picture though:

it just doesn't look as 'pretty'.  That is, if you could call this lump of chocolate cake pretty.

What could be prettier than a lump of chocolate cake? True INNER BEAUTY Grin

oh thanks for the reminder i haven't made a microwave pudding in years.
i did it often when i was a poor uni student, 6 years later i still am but had forgotten about this dessert gem.
i think i threw out the tall mugs i used to use Sad

i like to make mine a self saucing pudding.

Pudding batter
1/4 cup sr flour
enough cocoa to make it look the right colour
tea spoon of sugar or two, depending on your sweet tooth
an egg (optional)
and enough milk to make a nice cake batter consistency
(instead of the egg or milk you could use a runny yoghurt or even water or juice)

then on top of the batter put a dry mix of sugar and cocoa, i reckon 2:1 tea sp
then a 1/4 cup of boiling water on top

and into the microwave, set it for a minute but watch it from memory it took something like 30-40 sec.

i love the chocolate sauce at the bottom, it goes well with a scoop of ice cream too.
i wouldn't recommend you try and tip it out, like the other cakes, just eat straight from the mug, and be careful the sauce will be HOT.

I just made it after reading this post 5 min ago. used whole wheat flour (chappathi flour), splenda and 2 tsp oil with pinch baking powder and instead of choc. chips used 1 tsp crushed m&m's. Its not as soft as normal cakes but its real yummy..  Tongue Thanx 4 the recipe

Hey now all...be nice to the little microwave cake!  HA HA!  Just kidding.   Cheesy

It is a little rubbery...and a little strange looking.  You know....I've made this twice now and the first time I made it it was in a larger starbucks mug....and it turned out a bit better than the mug in the pic...wonder if mug size has anything to do with it. 

I might just try decreasing the oil and adding a bit of baking powder...hmmm....this could be trouble!

Wow, awesome! I have maybe seen this before, but will have to bookmark it for those times when chocolate must be had, but none can be found!

Also, does anyone else have an xpress gt? http://www.gtxpress.com/  I know, I am so lame but the infomercial gotally got me. I actually like it, and when I keep it out on the counter I use it pretty often. There is a recipe for that that uses cake mix and you can make little cakes in it, they turn out pretty well, but I like the idea of from scratch too! I will try your mix with this machine someday!

Oh my goodness. I want this so much but I'm on Weight Watchers (20lbs gone!) so I decided to see how many points this was... It's 15 points! (For those not on WW, that's more than half a day's points for an average-size woman.)

Mannn I was really excited cuz I thought I was able to reduce it to 4 points by using Splenda, 2% milk, egg whites, omitting the choc chips, and applesauce (instead of oil) but then I realized that you can only substitute 1/3 of oil with applesauce.

LAME. I want chocolate cake so badddd. Maybe I can just split it with the hubs tomorrow. Sad.

BTW, I think I have the same plate/cup as you Smiley

Have you tried the Betty Crocker Warm Delights Minis? 150 cal/4.5 g fat/1 g fiber  I don't have my points calculator handy, but I'm guessing that's 3-4 points. They are pretty good, same concept of microwave single portion of cake. Make sure to get the Mini lol! I like the "Molten Chocolate Cake"

This will be perfect for my midnight chocolate binges.
And I won't worry if it's not the best quality, either; the muchies from my sleeping medicine make everything taste wonderful.. (and make me fat!!)
