I had this at friend's house and had to have the recipe! He didn't know where he got it but he knows the date - it was on the receipt he wrote the recipe on. Great when you want just one serving of dessert.

RE: My recipe - Thanks for the review and I agree that the Kraft caramel was a bit *sticky*. I used an off brand in my trials that were not so sticky. So I think next time I'm going to try caramel topping and see how that works. Maybe even melting the caramels and mixing in a bit of cream and salt then adding it in the middle of two layers. The original recipe stated to cut the caramels in half and roll in Kosher salt - salted caramels!! BTW, that is NOT a picture of my recipe, I'm not that good!! :-D

Best microwave cake I have tried.. Lot of microwave cakes are nasty.I did not use caramel though or cayenne. I did not think it was dense. I thought it was normal cake texture for most part but richer.. But I had ops so want sujust scramble your egg up. Even if looks mixed mixes It more... I end up with egg piece in it... That was unpleasant but that's my fault. But in till I got egg piece it was great. I used 16 once foam cup it raised up in till about inch below the top of the cup... So make sure use big enough cup as it rises up... I was shocked as lot microwave cakes use double flour to get that size of cake... I love 2 less tb flour and 1 tb less sugar as less carbs

I would give this 3.5 if there was a half-star rating, so I'll give it 4 because it IS better than 3. I liked the flavors of this, but it was rather dense and the caramels stuck to the fork and my teeth (I used Brachs). Also, the inside of the cake tested done with a toothpick but the edges were rather wet and gooey looking. I recommend using a BIG mug, maybe 10oz or more; I used an 8 oz ramekin and the batter overflowed while cooking. Overall enjoyed the hint of spice and was nice topped off with a little ganache.
