Makes one cake


1/4 cup of Nutella

2 tablespoons of flour

1 egg

Place the Nutella and whisked egg into your favorite microwave-safe mug and mix. Once it’s well incorporated, add the flour. When the batter is entirely smooth, add to the microwave for 45-60 seconds. Let the cake set for about a minute and then enjoy!
