    I like this recipe because it makes more than one, as in "chocolate cake in a mug". I'll print it out and convert the grams to cups, teaspoons or tablespoons. What kind of chocolate did you use: a cooking chocolate or chocolate candy bar? I'll have to look up "caster" sugar, too. Maybe it's what we in the States just call "sugar". as we use the same to sweeten our tea or coffee as we use to bake with. I'm eager to try this -- AND -- I even have the ramekins. Oh, one other thing: How many does this recipe make? I'm sorry for all the questions but I really want to use this recipe.
