Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Because this recipe makes such a big mug cake, split the batter in two for a smaller cake. Microwave for 1 minute to 1 minute 50 seconds or until a tooth pick comes out clean. If the edges of the cake begin to bubble take out of microwave immediately.
  • Substitute 4 teaspoons stevia extract for the sugar, if desired.
  • Substitute vegetable oil for the olive oil, if desired.

Although the texture was "rubbery", the taste was surprisingly delicious. I did prepare my ingredients a couple hours before, and then just microwaved when we were ready to eat, so maybe that's...

Omg! This was amazing. The texture reminds me of a sponge cake. This is the perfect recipe to satisfy a chocolate craving without having to bake a whole cake.

I didn't had vanilla extract so that's why I left it and it was awesome
