Introduction

Until now I've only seen chocolate cake in a mug recipes, and so I figured I'd put one up for those who just don't like chocolate. Also, this recipe can be modified and you can add in anything that you want to.

    It wasn't bad. I will say though, I'm sure the flavored ones taste better, because this one tasted a bit doughy. I don't think I would have been able to eat this if I wouldn't have put chocolate chips on top and let them melt into a "frosting." I like that it didn't require eggs. - 5/3/13

    Great recipe! I made a few substitutions. I used 1T coconut flour and 1T AP flour. I used only 1T of sugar and used vanilla almond milk. Definitely satisfied my craving! I was afraid the portion size was too small, but it was perfect. I added some Speculoos cookie spread and chocolate soy icecream. - 2/25/13

    I've made it once before, didn't have oil, used butter, and I think it was a little too much. Just made it again with coconut flour and coconut oil(another guess on the measuring) and almond milk, and it was really good. Buttery. Will make this way again1 - 2/17/13

    Tried this tonight, and it was very good. I added about a tsp of rainbow sprinkles just as an extra treat, and it turned out wonderfully. Helped with my cake craving without letting me go too overboard. - 11/7/12

    This little recipe is amazing! I did double it and used 2 TBS of butter instead of oil just because I prefer butter. I couldn't believe the texture and taste! I'm almost sorry I stumbled upon this recipe because it's going to be very difficult to not make this all the time as yellow cake is my fave! - 8/22/12
