Wow! I've been experimenting with microwave cake recipes for a while now, and this one is by far the best I've tried. I did add some baking powder, so I can't say how the "original" recipe is, but with about 1/2 tsp baking powder, it was amazing.
I've also made it with peppermint extract, which I loved. I don't like things too sweet, so I cut the sugar to half and didn't frost it. It was perfect for me. Also, quartering this recipe works really well.
Update: My favorite version of this cake is more "brownie-style" - which means I cut the eggs in half (but still throw in a pinch of baking powder.) I also love this cake as a peanut butter brownie/cake. Substitute half the butter for peanut butter. (I don't add extra flour to make up for the cocoa and it hasn't been a problem.)
