    Yummy! I put so much peanut butter in the center and it was slammin’!

    I made it with chocolate chips, a little too much oil u can kinda taste it and even with choc chips could use a little more sugar than the two tbsp. Also sweet spot is 1 min 40 seconds. I'd recommend :)

    Yum! Was out of milk so used half and half, and I did mini chocolate chips. Okey gooey texture (not cakey — this is a good thing in my book!) Very rich — had trouble finishing a whole one...but it was so good I wanted to make a second one three hours later!

    It’s ok I microwaved it for 2 mins instead add more milk it doesn’t look like a batter when I mixed it but when I added more milk it turns out better

    Just ok. I realize it’s a mug cake but it tasted just like any other mug cake recipe I’ve tried

    Amazing!! I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil & mini chocolate chips on top instead of hazelnut spread... so yummy and the texture was perfect!

    YASSSSSSS! Thank you! It's fantastic. I over-cooked it by about 15 seconds testing the microwave (mine is 750watt). , but it does NOT disappoint! easy and fast was this recipe! Seriously still very good, but I'll know next time 1 minute and then check in 10 second intervals.

    It was the best mug cake recipe I’ve tried so far. Of course, it’s still just a mug cake, but definitely very moist and great for a snack. I will be making this again!

    I don’t usually review things beyond the stars but holy cow does this recipe deserve it. As a matter of fact, I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve made this. It’s so fluffy and delicious and by far the best mug cake I’ve ever had. I typically leave the chocolate spread out but it’s still perfectly moist. I highly recommend it.

    Perfect after dinner. i would venture to say you don't need to mix it in a separate bowl. next time I might just wisk the dry ingredients up in the big mig I used and rhwn add the milk and oil.

    This is amazing, I have made it so many times and each time it turns out perfect! Good without the hazelnut spread and mini chocolate. Definitely recommend

    This turned out amazing! I followed the directions and it’s probably the best non egg mug cake I’ve had yet!

    I was skeptical, because my first experience with mug cakes was a pasty, raw-tasting, gluey mess (prepared according to directions, I swear). This was wonderful! Even without Nutella. I think I'll try a spoonful of jam next time. ETA (9/26/20): If you forget the baking powder (as I did this morning), do not despair! It's still good.

    Amazing! Incredibly simple to make and I had all the ingredients except for the hazelnut cream so I used Hershey’s chocolate syrup and it made it so moist and delicious!

    It is very good and fluffy, but I wished it was more of a chocolate flavor. I put Nutella and milk chocolate chips in the middle.

    Best mug cake I've ever tried!! the texture is so good and not as gooey as the other ones I've tried. It took around 2 minutes in my microwave.

    I’m not a huge dessert fan but was craving something sweet. This definitely hit the spot - super easy, quick and very good. Topped it with vanilla ice cream and it was perfect!
    So yummy! easy to make, and its cooked nicely within 70 seconds. I will make this again!
