This doesn’t happen very often, so I’d try to enjoy it.

I’m speechless. Actually speechless. I don’t think I have any words and it is totally this cake’s fault. The fact that this baby can be made in under three minutes in the microwave and is less than 130 calories is nice, but that doesn’t compare to the taste. Oh the taste.

This is where the speechless part comes in. I’m going to warn you fairly: if you want me to try to describe how this cake tastes, you’re going to get a lot of ineffective metaphorical flailing before you actually learn something useful. So here I go.

At first, you get this bite that you can nearly describe as fudgy. Chewy almost, but not quite. And then you get peanut butter. Not like I just whacked you over the head with a peanut butter jar amount of peanut butter, but the peanut buttery-ness is totally there.

See? I just said peanut butter three times in one sentence to make my description more complete. That was for your benefit. You're welcome.

And if you’re a sane person and what I just said didn’t even begin to make sense to you, then I’ll pull together one sensible descriptive line for you. This cake is almost too mouth-watering to be vegan, grain free, gluten free, sugar free, soy free, low carb, only 129 calories for the whole ginormous thing be done in under three minutes.

Almost. But I wouldn’t trick you like that.

"Microwaves do not contain sufficient energy to chemically change substances by ionization, and so are an example of non-ionizing radiation.[14] The word "radiation" refers to energy radiating from a source and not to radioactivity. It has not been shown conclusively that microwaves (or other non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation) have significant adverse biological effects at low levels. Some, but not all, studies suggest that long-term exposure may have a carcinogenic effect.[15] This is separate from the risks associated with very high intensity exposure, which can cause heating and burns like any heat source, and not a unique property of microwaves specifically." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave)

...it\'s science. :P

Looks delicious. If my roommate had a microwave, I\'d be trying this tomorrow. :)

I actually took the time to make this. It was simply not edible. The stevia made it bitter. The texture was spongy. There was very little peanut butter flavor. The pic looked so good that i wanted to make it - big disappointment. Went into the trash.

This looks disgustingly sweet and NOT healthy. Try again. I also agree, quit nuking.
