Nutella Mug Cake

I have been experimenting with different mug cakes ever since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough.

Well, I continued experimenting, and thought I’d add some decadent Nutella into the mix. I modified the classic mug cake recipe, added Nutella, and a little more milk and oil than I had been using before. The results were beyond amazing. Finally, chocolate mug cake perfection, with a hint of Nutella flavor!

This mug cake may be a little high in fat, but it is the perfect decadence to help fulfill a chocolate craving after dinner. And the best thing about this dessert is that it’s quick and easy, and you can have it ready in under 5 minutes, start to finish!

I made these quick desserts today for my father and sister-in-law. They were the perfect thing to make for unexpected company.
