I promised a photo galley of Eater’s versions of the 5-minute Chocolate Mug Cake recipe I blogged about earlier this week. And away we go (come on! what are the rest of you waiting for?):

Grace Hensley writes: “Yippee! An excuse for chocolate in the morning! We used cake flour and Easter-egg-hunt chocolate-almond Kisses.
