Nutella Mug Cakes in 5 minutes

I heard a friend mention mug cakes last week and I had no idea what they were so I was determined to not only find out but to try them.

I found a recipe which sounded very yummy so today Emmy and I have been baking Nutella Mug Cakes.

They were not only amazingly easy to make but were unbelievably quick and yummy!!

4 Tablespoons of self raising flour
4 Tablespoons of sugar
3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
3 Tablespoons Nutella
1 egg
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

What you do:
Mix all ingredients together in a mug (we used a bowl as Emmy wanted to help and it seemed a less messy option then poured into a large mug) then microwave on full power for 1  1/2 – 3 minutes – ours took 2 minutes.

Allow to cool a little and eat!! How simple is that.  You can eat straight from the mug which we did as it saves on the washing up or you could put into a bowl and serve with cream or ice-cream.

This was an extremely moist cake which easily fed Emmy and her Daddy (I had a few mouthfuls too).  Next time I will either pour into mini ramekins and microwave or mini cups so the portion isn’t so big and reduce the cooking time. nutella mug Nutella mug Nutella mug cake nutella mug nutella mug nutella mug cake
