    @Dreiasmith So since technically this isnt cake, and it's in a mug, Can I eat it?

    This was yummy, but a little too “eggy for me.”

    Nutella Mug Cake… Just the thing! Doesn't heat up the house! Made in microwave!

    Can you tell me who made the mugs in the picture of the Nutella Mug Cake?

      They came from Target.

  10. I made these for my daughter who loves nutella, she loved them so much and they are so quick and easy to make.

    Wowza. I’m definitely going to be trying this one soon!

    I made this today but used applesauce instead of oil to make it a lot healthier. It was delicious and huge! One mug is enough for 2 people.

    Looks awesome! Question – can I cook them in the oven if I don’t want to use the microwave?
