These mini 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 changed the name and 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. If you want to try more mini cake recipe you might like my pumpkin Nutella cakes and mini sponge cakes.
