The easiest and fastest way to indulge after a hard day’s work!

November 23, 2011 (TCS) : So you’ve finished dinner and you are craving something sweet and indulging. Can’t be bothered waiting for another half-hour for delivery. Nothing that interesting in the fridge and the last thing you want is to whip up something and have more clean up to do.

Sounds familiar?

Then the Mug-Cake is the perfect after- dinner, sweet indulgence for you! It’s simple and easy to prepare, with minimal clean up-it is all in just a mug!

To make one very large serving here is the recipe:


4 tablespoons self rising flour

4 tablespoons white granulated sugar

1 egg

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

3 tablespoons Nutella

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil


1. Combine all ingredients in a large coffee mug. Whisk well with a fork until smooth. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 – 3 minutes. (Time depends on microwave wattage. Mine took 1 /2 minutes.) Top with whipped cream and a little chocolate sauce if desired.

2. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Enjoy!

Note: Depending on the wattage of your microwave, you may have to increase cooking time.
