Nutella Mug Cake

Since there are only two of us living here (Pookie and myself) it’s not really necessary to go all out and make an elaborate cake when we get the craving for sweets.  Well, I found this A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. recipe for Nutella Mug Cake, and it hits the spot!  The ingredients are things commonly found in the kitchen, and it’s a mug of moist, chocolately, nutella goodness.  I’ve tried a few mug cakes before and they were either way too dry or just plain nasty.  This one is perfect in every way. The only issue is… you’ll be hooked. 🙂 So I’m just warning you now, “bake” at your own risk.  The recipe and picture were both taken from this website.
