Thought this was very good-I had no sprinkles and I used 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of almond because I like that combination-wedding cake taste. I also microwaved it about 50-55 seconds on the cooking part and that was plenty. It would depend on your oven-mine it 1100. Put a little ice cream on top with a little whipped cream. Yummy!

It's okay, I would like it to have a little more moisture, It is a little dry for my taste, but not bad for a mug cake

It was ok, like another comment said, the batter tasted much better than the final cake. I put mine in for 75 seconds and that was a little too long. I like that this cake creates a good 1 person serving and isn't massive like some other mug cakes.

I used self rising flour and skipped additional baking powder. Kids loved it.

I didnt have any sugar so i used 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar and added a dash of almond extract skipped the sprinkles, and this was the best mug cake ive ever had! I topped it with heath bars and white chocolate and it was absolutely amazing!!

Do not put in more than 45 seconds when cooking the actual cake

This was just ok. It wasn't awful but it wasn't very good either. FYI the batter tastes better than the final product. The cake had awful texture and wasn't as flavorful as I would've liked. While it was nothing to write home about it was certainly better than most mug cakes I have tried.
