Nutty little mug cake

Today’s been one of those days. One of those days when everything goes (and feels) wrong. I mean, it’s so bad that I cried when I realized we were out of Nutella…tears for nutella, people!!!Ha. Well, I ran down to the store (nobody messes with my Nutella, oh no!), and what did I make with it? This nutty little mug cake. It was yuum! I’m telling you, there’s no better pick me up than a little mug cake…especially when it involves Ferrero Rocher! The world seems like a better place all of a sudden :)

Thought I’d share the recipe with you all in case you also need something not calorific at all to cheer you up.


What you need:

What you do:
1. Add all of the ingredients in the order of the list above. Whisk with a fork.
2. Bake in the microwave for about 45 seconds to 1 minute if you like your cakes runny, or about 2 minutes if you like them more dry. Please note: time depends on microwave wattage.
3. Add a little wiped cream….and enjoy!

Makes one rather large serving.

  1. Hehe, nutella definitely deserves a few teardrops now and then! Nice recipe, I’ll try it!

    TOTALLY have to try this :) I even know what the occasion will be, and I’m really looking forward! Off to get Nutella and Ferrero Rochers I go ! :)

    I sure hope it helped… I totally know what those days are like. Luckily, there’s always the promise of a new day (as Paula Abdul would say).

  3. Looks delicious. I’m trying this next week – after my friend’s wedding is over. I’ll be going crazy for sugar!

  4. I made this over the weekend and it was DELICIOUS! Honestly, I actually thought it was better than a traditional cake. Next time I think I’m going to add a scoop of ice cream ūüėČ

      oooooh yes, ice cream or whipped cream is a MUST, it melts with the warm cake and that’s SO good!

    Tried this about 20 minutes ago. It turned out good except that my mug was to small..chocolate/Nutella explosion… Not pretty.
    Will try again with a bigger mug lol.

    You need to update this to say ” whisk with fork” I wondered if you knew more than I did, and followed blindly. I made exactly like recipe states and I now have chocolate cake with bits of scrambled egg in it.

    • audrey says:

      You are totally right, Beth! So sorry your cake turned into a scrambled egg! Just updated :) Thanks for the feedback!

    Incase we don’t have self rising flour, What can we use as a substitute ?
