I never knew mug cakes have been made and blogged about for over 3 years already. Time to join; better late than never.
When you have a craving for a cupcake and don't have the time to bake nor the energy to take out the mixer then clean up after, then mug cake is the way to go. It takes just a few minutes to mix and microwave. Talk about instant gratification!
Nutella Mug Cake
recipe adapted from here
4 tablespoons self rising flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons Nutella
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons light olive oil
- Mix all ingredients in a large mug or in a small bowl and divide batter between 2 medium size mugs (the mug/s should be 2/3 full).
- Microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds, up to 1½ minutes, depending on the wattage of your oven. The cake should be a little wet but not runny. Enjoy while warm, topped with whipped lightly sweetened heavy cream or with fresh strawberries dipped in Nutella.
