  4. This is a fun and delicious recipe. I multiplied it out to feed 12 in my baking class and tomorrow I'll be making it for the two of us. I used real eggs. I didn't find the jam on the bottom did anything but what did work REALLY well was putting a spoonful on top - Read more ...
  5. What a pleasant surprise. This took 1 minute 10 seconds in the microwave and it was GOOD! Many mug cakes are dry but not the case with this one. It's a little spongy but plenty moist. Thanks emignance for sharing the best mug recipe that I've ever had.
