Mug Cake Recipe

With all the cozy weather and my attempt to spend some time intentional time with my husband, once in a while we like to have DIY date nights where we snuggle up on the couch, watch Parks and Rec and have sweet treat. Our go to sweet treat is Nutella Mug Cake, based off of this recipe, but we have since modified things enough to have made it our own.



  • 4 Tablespoons Flour
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • 6 Tablespoons Nesquick powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla

Mix dry ingredients in a mug or bowl.  Add in milk, egg and vanilla and stir thoroughly.  Add Nutella.  Microwave for 1 minute and then an additional 15-30 seconds depending on your microwave.  It is important to actually stop and open your microwave at the 1-minute mark or the batter can overflow and be a big mess in your microwave.

This is a really gooey and delicious treat that takes less than 5 minutes to make! Try it next time you’re craving something sweet!

What is your go to quick snack?
