Tough day? Tough week? Tough decade? Need instant pick-me-up sans implied sleaziness? Need something you could make with your own hands to provide a sense of accomplishment without tearing down the kitchen? Need self-gratification in form of gluttony decadence?
You need a 5-minute chocolate Nutella mug cake. With just 5 minutes and some basic ingredients, you could potentially save yourself from total embarrassment or ruin because… well how many emotionally-distraught people can think straight?
Cake will save them. And you.
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp Nutella
- 3 tbsp flour
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- a slight pinch of salt
- 2 drops of vanilla essence (optional)
Mix everything together in a nice big mug. Mix hard and well. That means everything must be a nice smooth liquid, no lumpy bits to be found. This takes me a couple minutes because I stir the s- out of the mix.
Pop the mug into the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stick around and watch the cake mixture rise.
And it’s ready! Eat by itself or with cold creamy vanilla ice-cream.
You may now feel like the most accomplished person in the world… till the end of cake.
