    Don't think it matters - I use olive oil but then I use olive oil for everything - Domestic Goddess I am NOT! :Rofl1:

    Well Marie,
    Isabel has made the choccy cake in a mug.
    Shes eaten some and Jacobs eating the rest. Isaacs too busy on the xbox.
    Its gone down well.
    Just make sure that you use a BIG cup.
    Cos theres quite a lot of it.
    I used a large starbucks coffee mug and the cake rose up , as you said , like a soufflé!! So if you've only got small cups , split the mix in two, or you'll end up with a mess in the microwave.
    I didn't have a table spoon so Isabel put heaped spoons of the dry stuff and put an extra spoon of oil in the wet mix .
    We will definitely do it again.
    Now infact,
    as Isaacs just come down and wants to make one :thumb:
