"As a poor starving college student, this recipe is one of my favorites. It is quick, cheap, and 1-portion size. I actually make about 6 servings of the dry ingredients ahead of time, then add the liquid later. The dry is about 11 tablespoons. A whipping cream or ice cream topping completes this heavenly dessert. Can substitute peanut butter for hazelnut spread, but cut the portion to 1 1/2 tablespoon. You can increase cocoa powder and hazelnut spread to 3 tablespoons each and substitute almond extract for vanilla if desired."

I am the submitter of this recipe. I add a PINCH of salt. And I always put in 3 T Hazelnut spread. I always top it with ice cream or fudge if I have some around! I hope this helps and clarifies...

It was ok. Next time I'll add 3 tablespoons of nutella.

Very yummy!!! I didn't have self rising flour so I added a little more than 1/8 tsp of baking powder and reduced the salt to 1/8 tsp. The cake wasn't very sweet but we ate it with ice cream an...

This is pretty good, but I'm going to have to experiment with the cook time a little before I find it delicious! I cooked it the full 2 1/2 min., and I think that was too long. It reminded me o...

Recipe was great in that it had all ingredients that I have in the house. When adding the salt I questioned the amount but followed the recipe. It was way too salty. I made it with PB which ma...

This is the first mug recipe that I have tried that tastes like actual cake. It is pretty yummy and definitely satisfies a chocolate cake craving. I would maybe use a bit less salt in the future...
