mug nuttella cake

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe, especially when i have cravings for cake at 11pm or on a Monday night and I just can not possibly start baking I make this. Mix everything together in a mug, pop in the microwave for 3 mins and its ready. how cool is that???



Microwave Nutella Espresso Mug Cake

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cook Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 6 minutes

Yield: 1 serving


  1. 4 tablespoon flour
  2. 3 tablespoon sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon espresso powder or instant coffee (I used Starbucks VIA Extra Bold)
  4. 1 egg
  5. 3 tablespoon cocoa powder
  6. 3 tablespoon Nutella
  7. 3 tablespoon milk
  8. 2 tablespoon vegetable oil


In a regular sized coffee mug (10oz), add egg and whisk lightly with a fork. Add milk, salt, espresso powder, sugar, cocoa, and oil to the mug. Mix well.

Add the Nutella and mix very well.

Fold the flour in carefully with a fork. Be careful not to overmix, to ensure a smooth fluffy texture.

Microwave on high for 3 minutes.

Allow to cool, and top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
