As a poor, starving uni student, this mug cake recipe is one of my favourite desserts. It is quick, cheap and makes enough for one! A spoonful of ice cream completes this heavenly dessert. You can try using peanut butter instead of hazelnut spread, but you won't need as much. I find that 1 1/2 tablespoons of peanut butter works well. You can also increase the amount of cocoa powder and hazelnut spread to 3 tablespoons each if you need even more of a chocolate hit!
Word of advice if you're using peanut butter instead of chocolate spread: You might want to increase the amount of sugar. The recipe takes into account that chocolate spread adds a lot of sweetness, but without it, the cake can taste almost a little bitter. It was all right for us, as we were having ice cream with it, but next time, I'll either go for chocolate spread or use more sugar. - 18 Feb 2018

Fabulous! Made this Saturday evening when we needed a chocolate hit and boy did it work! I didn't add salt after reading review above and was still great thanks. Extra - I made again for Sunday lunch, doubled up the ingredients and cooking time and now have more super yummy chocolate pudding! - 11 Mar 2017
