    If you microwave it with a spoon it cooks faster and tastes better!

    This recipe is awesome, although we suggest dividing the mixture between 2 mugs, putting an extra blob of choc spread in the bottom of each, and only cooking for 70-80 seconds. This makes an awesome moist cake that you can munch down with a spoon :)

    Whilst the texture is enjoyable, the actual flavour of the product leaves a lot to be desired. The addition of nutella post-cook enhances what would otherwise be a fairly plain, yet suitably moist cake. We would suggest slightly undercooking the cake, as the batter creates an in-dish sauce. 3/5 stars. Would bake again.

    however every 30 seconds stop the microwave, leave it for 10 seconds, then start it again as it will overflow otherwise
