Nutella Chocolate Mug Cake 

 
I am not a frequent mug cake person. I picked this theme for the Blogging Marathon this month  to explore this further. So I have been making 2-3 mug cakes every week now and the daughter is happily used to it.

Nowadays she points to the oven and goes – “Amma, suthi suthi” (round and round in Tamil)because that’s how the cups in the microwave oven go). Now I am stuck! 
 

So here is one of her favorites –

WHAT WE NEED

4 tbsp all-purpose flour

2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ tsp. baking powder

3 tbsp. granulated sugar 

⅛ tsp salt

5 tbsp milk

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 tbsp Nutella 

WHAT TO DO

  • Mix together all the dry ingredients in a large mug (14oz)
  • Add the milk and oil until all ingredients are combined and there are no lumps in the batter.
  • Add 1 tbsp. of Nutella in the middle of the batter. Just drop it in the middle. 

  

  • Microwave for 1-2 minutes
  • Enjoy!


NOTES

  1. A large mug is necessary for this since the cake will rise quite a bit
  2. I needed 2 minutes in the microwave since mine was set at 540W. If yours is at 700W or more than I think 1 minute should suffice.
