Good morning Lisa. No sweets for me for a while! Need to shed a few pounds or more! Enjoy your day!

Hi Lisa.  This looks perfect for someone suffering from cake withdrawals.

Well that sounds easy enough to me, everyone should be able to get their chocolate cake fix quickly!

Good morning, Lisa Von Domek wow... I just watched the video.... I'll be bookmarking your post and reblogging.... I'll also try this with artificial sweatener & skim milk to see if I can reduce some calories....

Good morning, Lisa... chocolate, cake... what more does one need? 

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Realty) almost 3 years ago

Lisa, this would be good for those that could possibly eat the WHOLE cake, and instead, have just a bit!

Good morning Lisa Von Domek,

Glad that Barbara Todaro reblogged your post! Great recipe! Sounds like a great way to have a treat and not be tempted to eat more because there won't be any leftovers! Going to share it with my grand kids they will love it!

I am not a big dessert eater so a cake in a cup looks like the right amount for me.

Posted by Joe Pryor, REALTOR® - Oklahoma Investment Properties (The Virtual Real Estate Team) almost 3 years ago

Thank you very much for sharing this recipe. I will send it to Chef Dolores on Facebook.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) almost 3 years ago

Interesting. I will have to save this recipe. I don't eat cake either, so having the option to just have a cup of cake for someone is great. Thanks Lisa.

I must be losing it...how could I not have known about this day!   I may have to try this recipe because it's too late to pick up a cake or make one! YUM

Lisa this is so easy that I could probably even make it.

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) almost 3 years ago

Easy & delicious, this is my kind of baking Lisa. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Wayne Martin just use a demitasse cup for a little bite of cake!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

I agree Gabe Sanders and definitely less dangerous than baking a whole cake!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

Cake that is quick, easy and tasty Brian England what could be better?!!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

Wonderful Barbara Todaro thank you and let me know how the recipe adjustments work out!

Don't forget the glass of cold milk to go with that cake Joan Cox

I'm with you Joe Pryor just a few bites of something sweet is enough for me!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

Wonderful Roy Kelley please let me know if you and Dolores like the finished cake!

I know that you can George Souto ...Enjoy!!!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

Debe Maxwell, CRS easy baking is the only kind that occurs in my kitchen, since I just don't care about cakes and cookies.  Now my husband, that's a whole different story!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

Hi Lisa,  Thanks for the reminder of  National Chocolate Cake Day, I hope you had a sweet day.  I'm going to try this recipe, too.  It looks like the perfect size.

Missed this one....and it would be a good entertainment conversation piece as well as a tasty one !

Posted by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Real Estate Agents - Luxury - Divorce (EXP Realty 414-525-0563) almost 3 years ago

Lisa Von Domek - I think this would be the perfect gift for a college student away from home. A cup, recipe, and ingredients too. I think they would appreciate the thoughtfulness very much. Plus, with Valentine's Day coming, it would perfect!

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) almost 3 years ago

A quick easy cake in a cup recipe sounds like something to try on a rainy Sunday afternoon.   Bookmarked to try and share.  Thanks

This recipe certainaly helps with portion sizing Bob Crane so much better than an entire cake!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

I agree Sally K. & David L. Hanson quick, easy and size appropriate!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

It certainly would be Patricia Feager and such a sweet gift!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

Wonderful Michele Cadogan please let me know how you like it when you try it!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 3 years ago

I haven't tried this recipe, but I have made cake in a mug before using a couple of tablespoons from boxed cake mix. It was pretty tasty, and warm right out of the microwave.

Posted by Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty, 601-991-2900 Office; 601-278-4513 Cell (Front Gate Real Estate) almost 3 years ago

Lisa, I will definitely try this recipe. Sounds so easy and delicious

Always nice for a single serving size of something tasty Pat Starnes, Brandon, MS an entire cake can be too much!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 2 years ago

Joyce Marsh, Daytona Beach Florida let me know if you give this one a try!
