  35. Hi! 2 questions:
    1. Are the ingredient quantities for 1 mug cake or 2?
    2. What do u mean by "1 no" for the egg?

    Thanks! Great pictures! :)

    1. Thank you all for your kind words...
      @ sapna...the quantities mentioned here is just for a single mug cake... "1 no" egg means one egg...

  37. Watch out... Quickly (25-30 sec) overflows the cup in the microwave, all over the place...

    1. Blake, I was concerned about that before I made it so I used an oversized mug first time out to see how full it would get. My advice is do not use a 6-8oz mug; bc of rising, it definitely is going to overflow.
      I used a 16oz mug and it puffed up to abt 1-2/3 full; pretty generous little cake! I also used Gluten-free flour, xanthan gum right along with the remaining ingredients. Perhaps the xanthan gum and baking powder caused mine to rise a bit extra?

  40. I just made this cake and it came out great!! I added 1 tblsp of chopped nuts and it was great, moist, awesome, not eggy.....try it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I used Cocoa powder + 2 extra TBSP of Sugar, a Gluten-free flour mixture + Xanthan Gum. All other ingredients remained, including the Baking Powder. The texture is amazing, the taste is so rich, too. After a few minutes of waiting to cool, I couldn't stand it any longer and I put some whipped cream on top

  42. I tried this and it came out very dense, possibly from the egg? Any suggestions to make the texture more cake like? I love the idea of it!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It can become dense ,if you over cook the mug cake.
      May be next time you should cook for like ......80 or 85 seconds...do let me know...okie!!!
