Nutella Mug Cake

Updated: Jan 28, 2020

Sometimes you just need the right amount of sweet. Something easy peasy, done in under 5 minutes and intensely satisfying. Enter our gather & be Nutella Mug Cake, the perfect quick treat. It’s the recipe that pops up in our head when we’re rummaging around our cupboards looking for something to satisfy our sweet tooth and nothing seems to be cutting it. A few pantry staples, a microwave and boom! Warm, chocolatey satisfaction for the win.


Yield: 1 large serving or 2 smaller ones

4 tablespoons self-rising flour

4 tablespoons sugar

1 egg

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tablespoons Nutella

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Whisk all the ingredients together in a large mug. If you want two smaller mug cakes, mix the ingredients together in a bowl and then divide into two mugs. Whichever size mug you are using, make sure that is not filled more than half way, because the batter rises and you’ll otherwise be left with overspill and a mess in your microwave. Place in the microwave and microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Better to have it a bit gooey than too done. Enjoy!
