Chocolate Nutella Mug Cake is – very easy to prepare, all you need is to mix the ingredients, pour it in the mugs and heat in the microwave for less than a minute.
Be careful not to fill the mugs more the 3/4th (maybe little less than that). Or it can overflow in the Microwave and can make a mess.
Choose a mug/cup which is microwave proof.
Don’t select a mug which is tall and narrow.
2 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon of sugar
A pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of Dutch cocoa powder
Hershey’s Cocoa Powder, 225g
1/8th teaspoon of baking powder
1 egg (room temperature)
1 spoon of milk
1 tbs oil
2 tbs Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread
Nutella Hazelnut Spread with Cocoa 290g
ice cream or chocolate shavings (to serve)
Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg, milk and oil. Use hand whisk and beat until well combined.
Spoon into a Microwave proof mugs till- 3/4 quantity. Spoon the Nutella into the centre. Microwave on High/1000watts/100% for 70 seconds or until risen. Top with chocolate shaving or ice-cream and celebrate with your dad.
Choose the fruit of your choice or of your dad’s choice (mango, strawberry, cherries, apple, banana or pear)
You can also use dry fruits like almonds, cashew nuts or even tutti frutti will taste good I this recipe.
The variation is endless, pic and choose the add-on you like.
About the cream – I have used this brand called Tropolite, which is a non-dairy cream. It is available at Aarif if you are in Mumbai. If you are not … you will have to look for a heavy cream. Some heavy creams do need sugar for whipping. So you add sugar accordingly.
Amul will not work, and If you have some local dairy near you, look there. You should be looking for something that can be whipped up, till stiff peaks.
You will need an electric hand-held beater with the whisk attachment to whip up the cream fully.
You can make it super easy – Use vanilla ice cream with cut pieces of fresh fruits. Serve it in an elegant glass to dad.
Or chop some Oreos and some chocolate pieces into vanilla ice cream. Mix it well when the ice cream softens a little and mix and freeze again. If you want to be really funky, freeze it in different shapes. How about a popsicle stand. Think more………..
3 cups of whipped cream
2 cups of fruits and nuts of your choice
Mix the whipped cream and chopped fruits in a bowl and chill in the refrigerator overnight. I don’t like to freeze it in the freezer, but prefer it chilled in a fancy serving bowl.
Cornflake chocolate cookies ice cream sandwich –
This recipe = play time All you have to do is break some cornflake + some chocos using a rolling pin. Melt some chocolate and some peanut butter and mix it with cornflakes. Shape them like a cookie on a sheet of parchment paper. Keep it in the fridge. Once set sandwich two cookies with an ice cream scoop and enjoy with Dad.
1/2 cup of chopped chocolate
1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 cups of cornflakes
1/2 cup of chocos
Icecream of your choice
Combine chopped chocolate and peanut butter in a saucepan over low heat; cook and stir until melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cornflakes and cocoas until coated.
Drop spoonfuls of the cornflake mixture onto a baking sheet lined with a parchment paper. Chill in the refrigerator until cool, about 30 minutes.
Once you feel that the cookies are firm and are easy to hold, sandwich them together with a scoop full of ice-cream and enjoy with your dad.
