Homemade Nutella Recipe

Even mentioning the name of this hazelnut delicatessen will have millions swarming by you to have a scoop. Everyone knows about the latest craze of all that is Nutella. Just mentioning the name has our mouth watering, but did you know that this chocolate-y goodness doesn’t only have to be eaten by the spoonful or spread? Yes you heard right! We’re talking about using this tasty treat to make a mug cake! A mug cake is exactly what it sounds like, cake in any coffee mug using these simple ingredients plus a jar of Nutella (which we all know we have lying around.)



  • 4 tablespoons of self-rising flour
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder (hot chocolate mix)
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of Nutella
  • 1 egg

Just begin by measuring all of your ingredients and pouring them into the coffee mug of your choice. Once you’ve poured all of your ingredients stir extremely well until the consistency becomes quite smooth and looks like chocolate cake batter. Depending on your microwave 2-3 minutes is what seems to have given us the best results. Once your microwave has beeped pull out your beautifully created mug cake and dig in! We like to add a little more Nutella to the top as a topping for extra chocolate goodness. The mixture can very well feed up to 2 people so invite your girlfriend’s over for a sleepover and indulge in this chocolate treat!
