Nutella Mug Cake
I absolutely love microwave desserts!
They can be made and served in no time at all, and can be just as delicious as any regular dessert.
This mug cake is incredibly moist and fudgy, loaded with Nutella flavour, and only requires 4 simple ingredients to make.
If you’re a big fan of Nutella, you need to try this cake. You’re gonna love it!
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
- super quick and easy to make
- LOADED with Nutella flavour
- requires only 4 simple ingredients!
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.
Can I add anything to this cake? Sure! You can throw in some chocolate chips, or even an extra scoop of Nutella in the centre before microwaving.
