      Hi! I am trying your recipe. At what temperature do you bake? I baked at 180° for 50 min. It has puffed up beautifully but is uncooked from inside :(

      P.S. Mine is LG microwave.

      Why don't you update those recipes? I'd love to try. This 1 is really easy but make sure you make it in convection mode itself. Thank you so much . I'm really glad that you liked the hub

      I've only made one or two cakes from scratch, and I've not yet tried chocolate. This looks very good, and very easy to make! And I'm a serious chocoholic, so I will have to try this soon!

      Welcome to HubPages - it looks like you are off to a great start here!
