Molten Nutella Mug Cake Recipe

One Cake


5 minutes


7 minutes

  • ΒΌ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2-4 tablespoons coconut sugar (or granulated sugar)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons coconut milk (or your favorite milk)
  • 3 tablespoons canola
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon brewed coffee
  • Ice cream, for serving (optional)
  1. Lightly grease a microwave safe mug with cooking spray. To the mug add the flour, cocoa powder, sugar and a pinch of salt. Whisk it all together with a fork.
  2. Add the egg, milk, canola oil and vanilla. Use a fork to whisk the batter together until just combined. Try to make sure you have incorporated all the flour off the bottom of the mug.
  3. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of Nutella into the center of the batter, pushing it slightly into the batter. Drizzle the coffee over top of the batter.
  4. Place in the microwave on full power for 1 minute and 30 seconds to 2 minutes. I have a 1200 watt microwave and found 1 minute and 30 seconds was perfect.
  5. Allow the cake to cool 1 minute and maybe add a scoop of ice cream!
  6. Enjoy right away, warm! Oh, and grab a cold glass of milk too!
