I've been told that you could have a homemade cake in a cup in less than an hour.. Any thoughts of how to do this? Have you tried it yourself? Does it taste good?

yup i wanted cake and i didnt have mix and i didnt want a whole cake just one for me. i found a recipe online for microwave cake in a mug, followed it and it was great. i had left over frosting too so i used that and it was even better. i did a little ingredient swap on the cocoa because i only had hot cocoa packets but it still worked. oh the second time i made it in a bowl and it was still great. here is the link http://www.tablefortwoblog.com/the-moistest-chocolate-mug-cake and here http://www.foodandwine.com/fwx/tag/chocolate-cake
The moistest chocolate mug cake you will ever have! It's NOT spongy like other mug cakes and will be sure to satisfy that chocolate craving instantly!

I've done something like that; it wasn't a cup that I used, but a tiny metal bowl. I found some cake recipes online & adjusted the recipe so the serving size was 2. I baked the mix in a tiny bowl in my toaster oven. I don't remember how long it took; definitely less than an hour--maybe about 35 minutes. It tasted great, but I think it depends on the recipe you use.

I've tried making a cinnamon coffee cake in a cup and it comes out pretty good. It's not really cakey, it's more of a souffle, probably because I need to cut back on the egg a bit. I like it though because it's a quick little dessert to have.

I haven't tried it but this claims to be a workable recipe - and the comments mostly go to prove it! http://www.instructables.com/id/5-minute-Chocolate-Cake/

I've tried making those molten lava cakes in a cup before. In a wider, shorter cup for coffee and tea. They tasted really good:)
