4 INGREDIENT MOLTEN NUTELLA LAVA MUG CAKE

This is very good and definitely makes enough for two. It is so easy to make when you want a treat. Word of caution though, a large mug won’t cut it. I make this in a four cup glass measuring cup and it works great without exploding over the edge in the microwave. Put a scoop of ice cream on top and you are good to go.

I loved this! Made it today for my son and myself. Perfect amount for two. I used a glass bowl because it’s a bigger recipe than an average mug can hold. I also split the white sugar in half and added brown sugar to make up for it. I microwaved mine for two minutes. It was done perfectly. Threw some ice cream on top and I was in pregnancy heaven.


4 INGREDIENT MOLTEN NUTELLA LAVA MUG CAKE

INGREDIENTS

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

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 350F. In an oven-safe mug (it won’t rise too high, so an 8 oz is fine), add all four ingredients. Mix with a mini whisk vigorously until batter is completely mixed and smooth.
  • Place mug on a baking sheet and then place into oven. Bake for approximately 16-18 minutes (mine took exactly 17 1/2 minutes). Watch the cake carefully towards the end. You want the cake to have puffed up except the center, which should still look dark and not completely set (but no longer wet, like photo above). Let cake cool a few moments before eating. You can top with powdered sugar and eat with ice cream if desired.
