SRC: 2-minute Nutella Mug Cake … with just 4 ingredients

I don’t know what I’m most excited about – the SRC reveal, this 2-minute cake, the Nutella in it or that it uses just 4 ingredients. It’s safe to say that I’m super happy with this recipe. For this month’s SRC assignment I had Cathleen’s blog, A Taste of Madness. Picking a recipe for this month’s reveal was particularly tough. Cathleen loves baking and is a big fan of anything covered in chocolate, in a nutshell. After spending some time going through her blog, I think we could become good friends. I know we like the same kind of food. How do I know that? Its simple really. I wanted to make (almost) every single recipe I came across on her blog. Seriously, go over to Cathleen’s blog and check it out. You can thank me later 🙂 With great difficulty I narrowed my choices for this reveal down to her Coconut Oatmeal Cake, Homemade Caramels, this crazy Smores Brownie Pie, these Gooey Cinnamon Squares and the Nutella Mug Cake. After a lot of deliberation, serious deliberation, the Nutella Mug Cake won.

4 ingredients, a quick stir and 2 minutes later, your kitchen will smell amazing and you’ll have a little mug of deliciousness in the form of this cake ready. This recipe was really the obvious choice for this reveal when I think of it, atleast subconsciously. My first mug cake recipe – this 2-minute Chocolate Mug Cake is one of the more popular recipes on my blog. And I know why. The appeal of instant gratification is hard to turn down. So if you lurve your Nutella, treat yourself to this Mug Cake.

2-minute Nutella Mug Cake


4 tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup Nutella
3 tbsp milk

Whisk all the ingredients together. I find it easiest to whisk everything together in a bowl.

Pour the batter into a microwave safe mug.

Microwave for about 90 seconds and see if its done. If its not done, microwave in 30 second increments as needed.

Enjoy!!!

  1. I wish I loved Nutella, but never mind, because I DO love mug cakes, and this one looks FAB! What a great SRC pick for a Nutella lover! Karen

  2. Oh, dear…. this is DANGEROUS! You know, I normally do not allow Nutella to cross the door of my home because I am unable to resist opening the jar and attacking it with a spoon…. now you post this recipe… UNFAIR! 😉
