Do you have a major chocolate craving but do not want to make a whole cake mix? Do you have a love affair with Nutella but are tired of boring old sandwiches? Well never fear, there is a delicious and easy recipe that calls for a few ingredients to be dumped straight into a jar of Nutella. The process is simple and it only takes a few minutes. Before long, you will have a mouth-watering single serving of gooey chocolate cake waiting to be devoured.
Only four ingredients are needed for this yummy treat.
- Half-or-so empty jar of Nutella (about 1/4 cup)
- One egg
- Flour (about 1/4 cup)
- Baking powder (about 1 teaspoon)
- Powdered sugar (for dusting)
That is all of the ingredients required to make this super simple recipe. It could not be any easier!
You will be eating in a manner of minutes.
Remember, this recipe is made using a glass jar of Nutella. It will be extremely hot after cooking and be sure to remove all pieces of the foil seal before microwaving.
- Add the egg, flour, and baking powder directly into the glass jar of Nutella
- Use a spoon to mix the ingredients until well blended
- Microwave the glass Nutella jar for five minutes
- Let it cool slightly
- Dust the top with powdered sugar
The delicious, gooey cake will overflow over the top of the lid. The light dusting of powdered sugar on top gives the cake the extra touch of fanciness that this mug-style cake needs. One serving will be plenty as the rich cake will fill you right up.
If the Nutella jar is plastic, it would be wise to move the ingredients into a glass dish for microwaving.
Mug cakes are extremely popular and are a quick and easy solution when you are craving a sweet treat just for yourself. They often require only a few normal pantry staples and are easy to whip up. One YouTube commentator noted a helpful ratio to keep in mind.
“Just to help for cakes most ratios are 4,4,4 and 2. So if there are 2 eggs 4 ounces of butter, flour and sugar with 3 eggs 6 ounces of butter, flour and sugar 4 eggs 8 ounces of butter, flour and sugar ect.” says That one Kittypet.
