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 sugar
- 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 large beaten egg
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream (milk can be used)
- 3 drops vanilla
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 1 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-size cake (at risk of solely eating the entire cake!) or when you just want a chocolatey quick snack.
If you give this recipe a try, I'd love to hear how you like it!
Have you tried a chocolate mug cake recipe that you're really fond of? Tried any other flavors? Please share!
