I left the applesauce out because I didn’t have any, but it was still delicious! Creamy, chocolaty and satisfying!

I used gluten free brown rice flour as a substitute, and am enjoying every bite!

Thanks for sharing how it tastes. I will continue my search in hope to find an easy mug cake recipe that makes good cakes too.

This was terrible! Sorry, but it was not at all good. It was so bland and way too moist. Don't make this.

I'm terrible sorry as far as its good looks I have to agree with Jennifer. I got the same results with her - bland and a lot of calories; about more than 350! It needs a little tweaking such as less vegetable oil (about more than a third of the calories is from the oil; A tbsp of it is 120, so the recipe calls for 180 kcal of oil!) Tweaking might improve it? Such as less oil, a little bit more of sugar and/or more chocolate.
