Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cakes. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Nutella: Or any other hazelnut chocolate spread.
  • Large egg
  • Milk: Any type you prefer.
  • Plain/all-purpose flour

How to make Nutella Mug Cake

To make this mug cake, simply grab a small mixing bowl and whisk together the Nutella, egg, and milk until combined.

Add the flour and and mix in until completely combined.

Divide the mixture between two small microwave-safe mugs or two small ramekins (I used two 4-oz ramekins), and heat for 45 – 50 seconds (800W).

NOTE: All microwaves are different and can yield different results (like a burnt, tough cake). My microwave is 800W and I cooked mine on 100% power for 50 seconds. Knowing this may help you better judge how long to cook yours for. I recommend checking on the cake after the 30 second mark.

Top with extra Nutella, or a scoop of ice cream. Serve and enjoy!

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

This Nutella Mug Cake is:

  • deliciously moist and fudgy

What can I serve this mug cake with? You can serve it with whatever you fancy! I personally like to top mine with a little extra Nutella, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
