I was watching something on tv the other day- think it was Oprah-the lady who invented the cake in a mug has a cookbook out with heaps of different cakes and things to put in mugs! Looks interesting- hehe, who would have 'thunk' it? ! lol

The $2. 00 shop in Rotorua had some quite tall and large coffee mug. They were white with coffee and tea written on them. They were the perfect size mug for this. The first time I used what I thought was a big enough mug and I had Mt Vesuvius in my microwave. Worth a try.

ok, am I the only one who can't make this? My cake comes out chewy and dry. Tried cooking it less, and found it cooked perfect on top, but still runny and batter like at the bottom. So sad:(

also works with standard flour, might stop it "exploding"

I have made it as well. also let it get cold & sliced it & buttered, & that was ok too

I use the same recipe, but use standard flour. Also add a dash of vanilla essence, a tablespoon of jam in the middle is yummy too :P I find it only needs 2. 5 mins in my microwave.
