  1. Mix the sugar, cocoa, milk, oil, Nutella, self-rising flour and the egg together in a large mug (because the mug can overflow). Are you pregnant? The egg solidifies by heating it above 70 degrees Celsius. This also ensures that harmful bacteria are killed, so you can safely eat the mug cake.
  2. Whisk the ingredients together until a smooth batter. Divide the batter over two mugs.
  3. Then, you can put the mugs one by one in the microwave for 1.5 – 2.5 minutes (the time may vary per microwave).
  4. When the cake has risen enough and really feels like a cake, you can take the mugs out of the microwave. After taking the mugs out of the microwave, you can check with a skewer if the mug cake is cooked.
  5. Add, when desired, a puff of whipped cream to your mug cake.

And it’s done, enjoy your cake! Tip: Eat the cake right away, because otherwise it will get hard and dry.
