Pure Nutella Mug Cake

Feburary 5th is World Nutella Day, and I’m hurrying to get this post published before the day ends! Now you might be thinking I’ve already done a Nutella mug cake, but actually I haven’t.

I did a chocolate Nutella mug cake which had Nutella and cocoa powder mixed into the cake. I also did a brownie cake with Nutella swirled in. But this one is a pure Nutella cake, or “Pure Nutella.”

The Nutella flavor really comes through in this cake. Like all my other microwave mug cakes, it’s super easy to make. Mix everything in one cup, microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes and you are done!  A steaming hot, made from scratch cake. Happy World Nutella Day!

If you enjoy mug cakes, here are the rest of the mug cakes I’ve made so far:


Pure Nutella Mug Cake


4 tablespoons all purpose flour
3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 egg
3 tablespoons Nutella
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Combine all ingredients in an oversized coffee mug. Whisk well with a small whisk until smooth. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes and then take it out to check to see if it is done. If not, microwave for another 30 seconds. You don’t want to overcook it or it will become rubbery. You can also make this into two smaller-sized mugs. You can mix the batter all in one mug and then pour half into another mug. Make sure you cook each one individually.
