Original source: Babble.com (I made the five-minute cake I blogged about several more times but it seemed chewy–maybe five minute is too long. Then I learned of this one through The Food Pornographer and haven’t looked back. I love how it is really nice and moist, and uses up the Nutella I have, although it doesn’t not taste greatly of chocolate hazelnut spread.)
4 tablespoons self rising flour
4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons Nutella
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
- Combine all ingredients in a large coffee mug. Whisk well with a fork until smooth. (I prepare it in this order: beat an egg, add sugar, add flour, add cocoa, add milk, add Nutella, add oil.) Microwave on high for 1 1/2 – 3 minutes. (Time depends on microwave wattage. Mine took 3 min 15 seconds.)
- Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup if desired. Enjoy!
Makes 1 very large serving.
