I only had self-raising flour on hand, so I used that and just left out the baking powder. I also used vanilla sugar instead of sugar and nutmeg. It came up really yummy. Texture was ever so slightly a little dry and crumbly, but tasted just like a doughnut. Thanks! :)

I made this and it was actually quite crumbly. It still tasted very good and was a hit with kids.

its alright I used a little bit of coffee creamer with the milk I think it would be better with a different topping though like a glaze or powdered sugar

When I made this I accidentally left out the egg but it still tasted great! Its a little dry but still yummy.

So simple and easy to make! Next time I'll add some vanilla extract and omit the egg yolk for some oil (as it smelt a bit eggy) but a lovely dessert or midnight snack!

I just made this recipe. I had to use margarine as I didn't have butter on hand. I also substituted pumpkin pie spice for the nutmeg and I rolled it in a little bit of margarine then a little plain sugar and it was absolutely delicious! I had been making chocolate mug cakes for awhile now and just could not stand another! This will by my favorite mug cake for a long time to come! I will use butter next time and cook it for 60 secs only (I did 90 and it was a little overdone but still good and fluffy!).

I made this recipe and modified it to be gluten free and it was so easy and a BIG hit with the family. To make GF, substitute the flour for the Land 'O Lakes GF flour blend and add 1/4 tsp xanthum gum to the mix and cook for 60-75 seconds in the microwave. This was great!
