This single serving molten Nutella lava mug cake couldn't be easier to make with just four ingredients!

5 from 1 vote


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


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 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.

  2. 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.
