Nutella mug cake with spoon

3-Ingredient Nutella Mug Cake

  • Cook Time: 1 minute
  • Total Time: 4 minutes
  • Yield: 1 mug 1x


This Nutella Mug Cake recipe uses only 3 ingredients and takes 1 minute to cook! Such an easy single serving chocolate treat.



  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Nutella, or other chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour


  1. Mix up Cake Batter – Start by beating the egg in a microwave-safe mug. Then stir in the Nutella until mostly smooth and finally mix in the flour. 
  2. Microwave – Microwave for 1-1.5 minutes until the cake is puffed up and dry to the touch. When in doubt, it’s better to undercook it by a few seconds than to overcook it.
  3. Enjoy! I love topping it with a dollop of extra Nutella and serving with fresh berries.
