My First Mug Cake: Nutella-White Chocolate Chip

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Hello hello! We are back home and settling down this evening, rejuvenating for another full week of work, school, and play. We had a fantastic Easter weekend, road-tripping up the California coastline and celebrating our Savior's resurrection. It is absolutely beautiful here, let me tell you. But before I review our amazing trip, let me first post a quick and fun recipe. I know, two recipes in a row, but really, I couldn't help it! Has anyone ever heard of a mug cake?  I've tried to make a mug pie on my own (epic fail) so I was ecstatic to find a mug cake and pie recipe book, where everything is already perfectly rationed out. Whoop! Delicious treats in minutes, and in a perfect portion at that!
My first one: Nutella-White Chocolate Chip. YUM!
I changed the recipe a little bit... This one is normally entitled Hazelnut-Nutella, which I felt was a little redundant (Nutella consists of hazelnuts, skim milk, and cocoa). Instead of having fresh hazelnuts on hand, or marshmallow fluff to make a whipped topping, I just opted for white chocolate chips instead. FABULOUS combination, y'all! Also, this recipe is very similar to the Nutella-white chocolate chip brownie bites I made last year, except for the fact that only calls for 3 simple ingredients. Check that out too! We love Nutella in our little abode!
Here's what you need:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup Nutella
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons flour (all-purpose or self-rising each work fine)
a pinch of kosher salt
1/4 cup chopped toasted hazlenuts (optional)
handful of white chocolate chips (optional)

1. In a large mug, combine the butter and Nutella. Microwave for 20 to 30 seconds until melted.
2. Whisk in the egg with a fork
3. Stir in the milk, vanilla, and sugar
4. Add the flour and salt
5. Beat the batter until smooth, and fold in the hazelnuts (optional)
6. Divide the batter between two mugs (Recipe makes 2 regular size coffee mugs)
7. Microwave separately for 1.5 to 2.5 minutes each until risen and firm
8. ENJOY!! See our Aggie pride? It's everywhere y'all, even in the kitchen! Love our mugs.
