SRC: 2-minute Nutella Mug Cake ... with just 4 ingredients

I don't know what I'm most excited about - the SRC reveal, this 2-minute cake, the Nutella in it or that it uses just 4 ingredients. It's safe to say that I'm super happy with this recipe. For this month's SRC assignment I had Cathleen's blog, A Taste of Madness. Picking a recipe for this month's reveal was particularly tough. Cathleen loves baking and is a big fan of anything covered in chocolate, in a nutshell. After spending some time going through her blog, I think we could become good friends. I know we like the same kind of food. How do I know that? Its simple really. I wanted to make (almost) every single recipe I came across on her blog. Seriously, go over to Cathleen's blog and check it out. You can thank me later :) With great difficulty I narrowed my choices for this reveal down to her Coconut Oatmeal Cake, Homemade Caramels, this crazy Smores Brownie Pie, these Gooey Cinnamon Squares and the Nutella Mug Cake. After a lot of deliberation, serious deliberation, the Nutella Mug Cake won.

4 ingredients, a quick stir and 2 minutes later, your kitchen will smell amazing and you'll have a little mug of deliciousness in the form of this cake ready. This recipe was really the obvious choice for this reveal when I think of it, atleast subconsciously. My first mug cake recipe - this 2-minute Chocolate Mug Cake is one of the more popular recipes on my blog. And I know why. The appeal of instant gratification is hard to turn down. So if you lurve your Nutella, treat yourself to this Mug Cake.




2-minute Nutella Mug Cake

4 tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup Nutella
3 tbsp milk

Whisk all the ingredients together. I find it easiest to whisk everything together in a bowl.

Pour the batter into a microwave safe mug.

Microwave for about 90 seconds and see if its done. If its not done, microwave in 30 second increments as needed.

Enjoy!!!

    1. I've been tripping on mug cakes in the last couple of months, now that I have access to a microwave.

  3. Oh, dear.... this is DANGEROUS! You know, I normally do not allow Nutella to cross the door of my home because I am unable to resist opening the jar and attacking it with a spoon.... now you post this recipe... UNFAIR! ;-)

    1. It could be, but I look at it as very effective portion control. I make just one or two (if hubby is around). That way when its done, I can't go back for seconds :)
