    When I microwave mine for enough time, it is cakey all the way through. If I don't, it tends to be more "fudgy" in the middle. There was one time I accidentally did not get the nut butter well enough mixed, and it definitely had a molten taste and texture to it. Let me know what you come up with. I'll try to play around with that a little for you too!

    Good to know - thanks!

    I usually start with 30 seconds and then stir then cook in small increments until desired doneness. Stirring makes it ugly and more like scrambled egg consistency but I don't care what it looks like. I usually pour a little something moist over it too.

    Darz - yes! This worked. See if it was what you were looking for. Tastes great! Paleo Musings: YUM, "No cheat, not-the-Hostess Cupcakes" Recipe and photos at link. Nut butter and chocolate were used for the filling.

    Can a mug cake be made in the oven or only the microwave (which I don't use/own)? Thanks!

    I've thought about the same thing, my guess would be that it would work though you'd have to find the correct time and temperature for it and it'd probably take a bit longer.

    How come your cakes are so dark? I've been using raw cacao powder and it's much lighter in colour as opposed to Dutch process cacao which becomes darker.

    I had that too until I started using Hershey's unsweetened dark cocoa. To be honest, I like the taste of the dark better too. It's cheaper than what I used to buy. Can't beat that.

    What's the texture like on your cakes - is it like a normal sized cake or is it different because mine's are quite strange they are somewhat spongy but not it the same way as a regular cake.
