Chocolate Mug Cake

During my second pregnancy I became obsessed with chocolate mug cake as a daily solution to my chocolate cravings. I have gradually adjusted different recipes and came up with this one to suit me.

This cake is about the equivalent to a birthday cake sized piece of cake, is chocolaty and moist. Best of all I only dirty one mug, one spoon and 2 measuring spoons.

You can swap the Nutella for any flavor of similar consistency to suit your craving ( peanut butter, fudge sauce etc)

Chocolate Mug Cake

1 standard coffee mug

3 tablespoons flour

3 teaspoons brown sugar (white works too)

3 teaspoons cocoa powder

dash of salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Mix all these together in the mug.  Then add:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil or melted butter

3 tablespoons milk

Mix well with flour mixture.  On top of the batter add 1 heaping Tablespon Nutella.  Microwave on full heat for about 1 minute 10 seconds.  If additional time is needed microwave at 5 second intervals.  Allow to cool for a couple minutes and enjoy!!
