These Nutella cakes are easy to make with just three ingredients and great when you want a quick treat. This is a one-bowl recipe that takes just a few minutes to make!
Sometimes, okay maybe a lot of the time, I get cravings for something sweet but I want something quick. I love to make mug cakes, but sometimes I want a bigger batch of something that BF and I can snack on during the week. These mini Nutella cakes are a perfect solution.
Each one is a Nutella cake that is bite-sized and perfect with a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon. They’re not fancy, but they satisfy the sweet tooth and you only need three ingredients to make them.
I found the original recipe on Savory Sweet Life and they were supposed to be more brownie-like, but my version was more cake-like. I still really enjoyed them, but they’re not really like fudgy gooey brownies. So, I call them mini cakes instead.
- All-purpose flour
The original recipe calls for hazelnuts which I completely forgot to add. I think they would dress them up a bit, but I didn’t really miss them.
All you do is combine the Nutella and egg together until smooth. Add the flour and stir until combined.
Fill the muffin molds ¾ full with batter and bake for 11 to 12 minutes. Once the cakes are cooled store them in an airtight container and they will keep well at room temperature for a few days.
BF and I liked these little Nutella cakes. I may try the recipe again with the hazelnuts, but it works fine without them.
