    @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!

      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.

    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?
