Decadent Chocolate Mug Cake

Have you tried any of the quick chocolate mug cakes that are super easy to make?  You mix all ingredients in a mug and after about 3 minutes in the microwave, you have a yummy single serving of moist chocolate cake!

I've tried several versions and after a few tweaks, this is by far my favorite.

In a large microwave safe mug, mix the following:

4 tablespoons sugar4 tablespoons all purpose flour2 tablespoons cocoa powder1/8 teaspoon salt1/8 teaspoon baking powder1 large beaten egg3 tablespoons heavy cream (milk can be used)3 drops vanilla3 tablespoons oil1 tablespoon Nutella Hazelnut Spread
Mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Microwave 2-1/2 to 3 minutes.  Remove carefully from microwave.  Cake will be super hot.  Let cool a few minutes and serve warm.  

You can eat directly from the mug, or turn it out to a pretty dessert plate and serve with a topping of whipped cream and chocolate syrup.  

These are great when you're the only chocoholic in the house and don't want to bake a full-s…
