What We’re Trying: Nutella Mug CakeCup, eggs, baking powder, and chocolate

We love the chocolate, nutty flavor of Nutella, and due to its creamy nature, it makes a great ingredient in chocolate cake. With an extra spoonful of Nutella in the center of the cake, this gooey, warm treat went perfectly with a glass of milk and cozy pajamas.

  • Simple ingredients - No extra trip to the grocery store is needed! We found all of the necessary ingredients in our pantry.
  • No leftovers - We are still trying to reach our new year's health goals. These mugs are great for a Valentine’s Day treat with no leftovers.
  • Microwaves - Microwave cooking is quick and easy but can also be unpredictable. To avoid overcooking or spills, we recommend cooking in 45-second increments.
  • Pairs great with a movie - We recommend enjoying this treat while watching a movie! Kanopy and Hoopla offer some great entertainment options!
