No? Um...Yeah, me neither. But in case you ever think you are on the verge of doing something desperate, like even thinking a Twinkie sounds good, then maybe you should try this beautiful dessert I just came across.
It's brilliant! Throw your ingredients into a large mug, whisk, microwave, and BAM! A personal, hot gooey cake, all for you. I mean, I guess you could share, but really, why?!
Get into your comfy pants, make your very own mug cake, curl up on the couch, and RELAX. You deserve it.
Strawberry Nutella Mug Cake
adapted from The Family Kitchen on blogs.babble.com
- 4 Tbsp. self-rising flour
- 4 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1/2 Tbsp. espresso powder (optional)
- 3 Tbsp. Nutella
- 1 Tbsp. strawberry preserves (sub your favorite or omit)
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbsp. milk
- 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
*Whisk all the ingredients in a large mug. Place mug on a plate in case it spills over. Microwave for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes; go with less time if you have a high wattage microwave. Top with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and fresh strawberries if you have them.
I had leftover whipped frosting and chocolate sauce from these cupcakes I made from my son's 5th birthday yesterday. And if you want a stronger Nutella flavor, spread some over the top of the warm cake before adding the whipped cream. Serious Mmmmmm.
* I have a baby whisk, so if you don't have one, just use a fork.

Is self rising flour different from All Purpose Flour? Im definitely thinking of trying this tonight!!ReplyDelete
It is actually! I found it easily with all the other flours at my local grocery store. Now it's nice to have it on hand to make these mug cakes. Hope you enjoy this just as much as I did, thanks for stopping by!Delete

I can't believe that you use an entire egg for a mug cake when a whole cake (9x13 or 2-8" cakes) recipe only calls for 2-3 eggs! But that's not going to stop me from trying it!!!ReplyDelete
I thought the very same thing! My curiosity and my love for Nutella got the better of me, and I tried it...I think it's pretty perfect for what it is, so I hope you enjoy it!Delete

A contemporary wedding cake is the choice of the day. Even in the older times, no wedding was complete without the cake. However, in those times, people didn't pay much attention to recipes and designs. Wedding baked comfort food meant a tiered cake covered with white snowy icing and a few flowers. Nothing in the world remains the same and hence there is a revolutionary change in the cake ideas too.ReplyDelete

Using dog food recipes to make your dog's meals from your own kitchen could be the best decision you make for your dog's health. The pet food recalls have made comfort food recipes owners take a much closer look at what they feed their K-9's, which puts the pet food industry under a very unwelcome microscope.ReplyDelete
