The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Nutella Chocolate Cake…in a Cup. (5 mins)
This is it. This is what I have been waiting for. Heaven and Hell in a cup. A delicious, nutella cake-filled cup. I found this recipe on Babble and full credit must be given to Angie McGowan for this.
It’s very simple. You have a hankering for some cake. But you don’t want to go though the whole rigmarole of getting out the whisk and the mixing bowl and the wooden spoon and measuring a bunch of stuff…
So, just lump everything into a mug. Make it a pretty big one as this bad boy expands in the microwave. I’ve shown myuber-cool Eeyore mug as an illustration of the size you should expect.
Recipes don’t get much simpler than this, so enjoy. Feel free to mess around with it a bit. Some people top it off with whipped cream or marshmallows, some add peanut butter to the mix. Go crazy.
