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!
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
I am the submitter of this recipe. I add a PINCH of salt. And I always put in 3 T Hazelnut spread. I always top it with ice cream or fudge if I have some around! I hope this helps and clarifies things! - 07 Feb 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My oldest boy and I made this together last night. We made no changes or substitutions. I did make sure to spritz my mug a little with non stick cooking spray before I added the cake ingredients. We topped the "cake" with a little Cool Whip before we dug in. Both of us really enjoyed this. Great quick pantry dessert. - 05 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
