Nutella Mug Desserts

These are simple. Just a word though. Just because you are cooking for one in a microwave it doesn't mean you have to mix everything together in a tiny mug. Use a small bowl and then once mixed transfer everything to a mug and cook.

Servings 1


  • 50 gm flour you can use gluten free flour / 4 Tablespoon
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder, dark unsweetened
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 60 gm caster sugar 3 Tablespoons
  • 60 gm nutella 3 Tablespoons
  • 60 ml milk 3 Tablespoons
  • 60 ml oil 3 Tablespoons
  • 1 Egg


  • Mix the flour, sugar, cocoa and baking powder in a bowl.
  • Add the egg, milk, oil, nutella and mix to a smooth batter.
  • Pour into a mug and micro wave for 1 minute before opening and checking. At this stage it will be almost cooked. After another 20 seconds it should have a molten centre. 20 seconds more will produce a nice soft cake.
  • Only give 10 seconds at a time after this. ( My oven is 1200 Watts) it is better under cooked.
  • Now serve with cream, ice cream, nuts or fruit.
