- 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 4 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoon milk
- 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
- dash of salt and vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1-2 teaspoon of Nutella
Whisk all of the ingredients into a mug until smooth. Microwave for ~2 minutes, until the cake puffs up. Remove from microwave and let rest for a few minutes. Top it off with whipped cream or powdered sugar, or any of your favorite cake toppings.
How does it taste?
Pretty good actually. I didn’t really know what to expect. Initially, just looking at it as I took it out of the microwave, I knew it wouldn’t have a cakey consistency. It’s actually a little dry and chewy. I topped it off with lite whipped cream, which nicely complemented the chocolate.
Would I make it again?
Sadly, no. I love my cakes to be soft and moist. This recipe was convenient and it’s been something I’ve seen around the net a lot lately, so, I just wanted to find out for myself how it would turn out. BUT, it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. Actually, because of its chewy consistency, I stopped eating it half-way through. Eating dessert shouldn’t be this arduous and tedious…ha!
Maybe I’m just super picky when it comes to baked goods consistency. I don’t know.
Give it a go if you haven’t done so before. It took about 5 minutes to put this together.
