3 Ingredient Flourless Nutella Mug Cake

3 Ingredient Flourless Nutella Mug Cake

This single serving Nutella mug cake is ridiculously easy to make with just 3 ingredients. It’s rich, dense, chocolatey and everything a flourless cake should be.

This cake only requires you to wait 15 minutes. You can do that right?

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tbsp dutch processed cocoa powder

Preparation

  • Combine all ingredients in an oversized microwave-safe mug. Mix vigorously with a small whisk until batter is smooth and the egg has been completely mixed in.
  • Cook in the microwave for about 1 minute 10 seconds. The cake should be set but may be slightly wet on top. Let cake cool for 15 minutes before serving. The cake will condense down during this cooling process. You can replate in a smaller mug/plate/ramekin before serving. You can top with powdered sugar or chocolate syrup.

Mmm that sounds amazing! So rich and chocolaty. Love how easy it is, too 🙂

The cake is not overly sweet, tasting like melted dark bittersweet chocolate. If you like yours to be more sugary, you can always drizzle some chocolate syrup on top. I topped mine with a simple powdered sugar.Because this cake is so rich, the portion is small. When the cake cooks, it will rise quite a bit so you’ll need to cook it in an oversized mug. After it’s done cooking, it starts to shrink down and condense. Once you let it settle for a few minutes, you can scoop it out and plate it in smaller mugs or dessert plates. I bought these adorable espresso sized mugs to plate mine in.
