Chocolate & Nutella Mug Cake…. You’d Be Crazy Not To Try It


To be totally honest this is not the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted (not even close) but the ability to have a warm chocolate treat in around five minutes from start to finish is just fun if a little dangerous. This is just some fun for a holiday weekend.
It is hard for me to credit any one source for this as there are so many variations of this around the web and this is a bit of a mix up of several of them.

Chocolate Nutella Mug Cake Recipe

  • 4 tablespoons Flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of Baking Powder
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablesppons nutella
  • 3 tablespoons of Cocoa Powder (I only had the sweetened type if yours is unsweetened increase sugar amount)
Put all ingredients into large mug and thoroughly mix. Microwave for between 1.5 to 3 minutes depending on power of oven. My cake took 1.5 minutes. Carefully remove from microwave. Remember the handle will be hot. Dust with confectioners sugar and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
