Naturally, it being 11.30pm, I got out of bed to make a Nutella mug cake from a YouTube tutorial I have just watched. There were once days where I ate ‘clean’ but I honestly would rather be happy. Whilst my metabolism allows it, my conscience will allow it. The tutorial, from CutiePieMarzia, is great; so simple and speedy. Normally, when watching online baking tutorials you need many an ingredient that aren’t standard kitchen cupboard stock, and so I am usually deterred from all the unnecessary calories. However, this one is so easy, and, as I write this, spoon in hand; I can assure you it tastes raaallllyyy good.
What you’ll need:
2 Tablespoons of Self Raising Flour
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
2 Tablespoons of Nutella (or 3, if you’re me)
1 Teaspoon of butter, or vegetable oil
1 Teaspoon of sugar
1 Tablespoon of Milk
And then literally mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. I would however recommend dividing the mixture between 2 mugs, as if it all goes into one mug, the bottom tends to stay raw, whilst the top half overcooks.
Then, pop in the microwave for 1.5 mins and ya good to go!
