chocolate mug cake (take 2)

My very first attempt at “baking” was a very simple microwave chocolate mug cake. After several months of actual baking experience, I wanted to go back to basics and try a microwave cake again (with a different recipe):

  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • dash salt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp Nutella
  1. In a bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Whisk in milk and oil until well combined and batter has no clumps.
  2. Pour batter into microwave-safe mug (or ramekin) with enough head space for cake to rise.
  3. Drop Nutella in middle of batter. (No need to push down.) Set mug on plate to catch overflow.
  4. Microwave on high for 60-70 seconds. Carefully remove from microwave and enjoy with ice-cream!

This mug cake is so yummy! I inverted the cake onto a plate and it became a molten chocolate cake. Not just any molten chocolate cake; it was actually oozing Nutella! OMG what amazing flavor! And the cake was so moist. I topped it with ice-cream and ate the entire thing in less than a minute. (I licked the plate too… shhh) Such a quick & simple dessert. I’ll probably be making this everyday now… 😛
