4 ingredients for making a mug cake

Let us look at the ingredients to make Nutella Brownie in a Mug: 

Nutella – The best thing out of a jar. Ever. 

Milk – Preferably whole milk, but reduced fat is ok. Not fat free. It is a dessert after all!

Tips and tricks for making this Nutella Brownie mug cake:

If using a fresh jar of Nutella, make sure to give a good stir before using.

Stir well – Due to thick consistency of Nutella, it takes a bit of stirring to be mixed in completely. So, make sure it is completely smooth.

You can use any microwave safe coffee mug for the recipe. Just make sure that it not a big one, since this Nutella mug cake recipe makes just one serving.

A 4-ounce ramekin works great for this measurement as well. It comes in handy when you want to serve this microwave Nutella brownie as a dessert.

If making in a ramekin – I used a 4 ounce ramekin which was perfect for this recipe and it was too small to stir ingredients in it. So, I preferred to mix all ingredients in a seperate bowl, transfer to the ramekin and cook.

  1. Hiya, I don’t know what it is about the recipe but it won’t turn into a cake for me :/// it just comes out liquidy and gooey?? Possibly the amount of milk. I recommend 1- 1 1/2 Tablespoons of milk rather than 3 to avoid this. Thanks

    1. Hi Rebecca, I’m so sorry to hear that.
      Is it possible that you used GF flour? OR Was it a new jar of Nutella and you used, without stirring?
      Flour + cocoa powder + Nutella (since it has hazel nuts in them) will thicken when combined with 3 tablespoons milk.
      Hope it helps:)
