Mug Cake


I am always looking for different kinds of ways to spice up a dessert for after dinner. There are a few things in life I just cannot live without and one of those things is of course Nutella..

Whether it be on toast, on a cracker, in a cake or just of the spoon.

This week I tried something new, it seems to be doing the rounds on Pinterest and it claimed to be quick and easy. Luckily I stock a hell of a lot of Nutella so this was a perfect recipe for dessert.

It was done in 3 easy steps too!



  • 4 tablespoons self-rising flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons Nutella
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large coffee mug.
  2. Whisk well with a fork until smooth.
  3. Microwave on high for 1½– 3 minutes. {Time depends on microwave; mine took 2½ minutes}

If you want to you could put clotted cream or whipped cream on top, as I am not a fan of cream I went without.

I honestly thought, that it would be a liquid mess when I took it out of the microwave but surprisingly it had risen to triple its size! {I should of used a bigger mug!!}
