{Nutella Mug Cake}

I kept bumping into this Nutella mug cake on my travels thru blogland and because my little people love Nutella I figured this would score me some pretty big brownie points with the added bonus of only about six minutes of effort. So today they got it for lunch, yup I fed my children chocolate cake, cream out of a pressurised can and strawberries for lunch and you know what it totally rocked. It's a yummy moist nutellery chocky cake and was big enough for the three of us, eat it while its still warm, the whipped cream out of a can is optional.

I might just add for the sake of my foodblogging credibility that its not a regular item in our fridge, Jack saw it on the Simpsons was curious and so in his own effort to score brownie points Jay bought some home. He proceeded to squirt a great big glob of it straight onto each of the wee peas palms, needless to say they are now both big fans of the little miracle that is whipped cream in a can and it has featured on every banana split since, lets just think of it as a little bit of retro food education.

...the cake
4 tbsp sr flour
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp Nutella
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp vegetable oil

1 egg

Combine all the ingredients in a large coffee mug (needs to be quite large I used a soup mug and it still overflowed). Whisk well with a fork until smooth. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 3 minutes. Time will depend on your microwave wattage, mine took the full 3 minutes.


  1. next time you make this invite me over!!! I don't allow nutella in the house, as i think my little ones will have addictive tendencies to it, and then....all my power will be lost. it's a common disagreement between lou and I. he wants it, i don't and i win ;-) but looking at the cake hmmmm....xx

  2. OMG! This is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing! I have added a super sized mug to the shopping list along with the rest of the ingredients!

    Oh and by the way I am guilty of feeding Master N chocolate cake for lunch - more than once!

  3. Wow. I must try this asap. Too bad we already had lunch.

  4. Yum yum yummy....yum.
    Oh my word I think my eyeballs just had an orgasm.
    Is that gross? Sorry.
    BUT oh my word, cheers for the recipe!
    My thighs hate you.

  5. Oh so good! Simpsons inspired foray unto cream-in-a-can cracked me up. Lovely blog you have here x
