2 Minute Microwave Chocolate Nutella Mug Cakes

Chocolate Nutella mug cakes you bake in the microwave in 2 minutes? Yes, please.

Have you tried making a microwave mug cake before? I've made a few of them in my time but none of them have turned out to be as good as this one. It's delicious and moist and has the added bonus of leaving behind only minimal washing up. All you need is a tablespoon, a mug and a fork and you're all set. Of course if you want to be a bit fancier and don't mind the extra dishes you can spray your mug with some non-stick cooking spray first and turn your finished cake out onto a plate.

If you're looking for a quick and easy sweet treat I can recommend giving this one a go.

How to make Chocolate Nutella Mug Cakes

1. Add the Nutella, sugar, vegetable oil ,egg, milk, cocoa and flour in this order to the mug. If you want to turn your cake out spray some non-stick cooking spray into the mug before adding any ingredients.

2. Whisk with a fork until all the ingredients are combined. The mixture should have the consistency of a thick milkshake.

3. Microwave for around 2 minutes. This will depend on your microwave and how moist you like your cake.

The first time I made this I popped it in the microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds and the cake was still uncooked at the bottom. The next time I microwaved it for 2 minutes and it turned out perfectly. You may need to adjust the time depending on the size of your mug and the power of your microwave.

4. Dust with icing sugar or top with cream and enjoy.

I'm thinking of trying this snickerdoodle mug cake next and maybe this chocolate peanut butter one. They both look so good. I've definitely been bitten by the 2 minute mug cake bug.
