2 Minute Eggless Nutella Mug Cake made in Microwave - Seriously Addictive

Ever since i made this chocolate cherry cake in microwave, i became a complete addict for these types of cake..I started experimenting more about these cake..I think these cakes are so amazing, because they can beat any types of chocolate cake by their cooking time. They can served as a instant desert even for parties..I am planning to do a complete series for these mug cake soon in my blog starting from vanilla mug cake, chocolate mug cake to peanut butter mug cake...What do you think guys?

Yesterday i went for a quick shopping..I found this coffee mug there, it came with a spoon as well, which adds a little bit of edge to it. I picked one for myself. I also picked the few cloths to add more colour to the food pictures which i take..

What do you think about this cloth and mug?

As you all know, i am crazy chocolates, specially nutella..If you ask me what is the last thing which i want to eat in this world..I would tell you it is NUTELLA. 

I want to praise the man who invented nutella for the rest of my life, i want to put flowers where ever he walk, just kidding at the last part..

But seriously nutella is addictive, hence the cake made with this is addictive too..

This cake is so soft, moist, chocolaty, rich, fudgy, gooey and it goes like this...

Try it and you will know why i am talking liked a mad..

Nice table cloth! I like really the polka dots.

The mug cake series might be great for people who have a microwave - it really is a time-saver, perfect for a quick snack. Alas, I do not have a microwave, so I wouldn't be able to make them :(

Ref: the pictorial illustration of pouring milk; clarify whether you used is milk or cream??

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@SeemonI mixed milk powder with some water, so it seems so thick. But milk will be good.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousYou need to cook it in microwave mode

Indu said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi, I tried your recipe today and all was fine except that the outer crust became a little too hard. What should I have done to avoid that ?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@InduI think you must have cooked it longer. Each microwave vary in heat, so next time cook it for little less time.

If this is a microave recipe, then why did u say that u have to bake it? I have an oven, so should I bake it for 2 minutes in the oven, or 2 minutes in microwave?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousSorry that is a typo. you have to cook it in microwave for 2 min

Vidhi Madan said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi.. can I replace maida with wheat aata to make it more healthy? ?

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I do not have a microwave. If I use OTG (Oven-toaster-griller), how many minutes do I bake it for and at what temperature?
Pooja :)

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymous I am not sure, but i think you can bake it...bake it at 180 degree C for 10 to 15 mins..Check and if it is not baked, bake for 5 more mins..
