      @kam-s-bola: Hi! Thanks for the compliment and comment. I used a regular sized soup/cereal bowl that is oven safe to make the mini cake.

      What size of the baking pan is needed? Or is this a mug cake recipe? It just says to spray cake bowl. No measurements or cups. Thanks for the recipe. It looks delicious.
