About this recipe: 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!

  • 30g self-raising flour
