How to make a microwave mug cake with Nutella

A quick and easy activity that you can do with your children that tastes delicious! Make sure you use a large mug and only half fill it with ingredients so that it doesn’t overflow.

You will need:

3 tbsp self-raising flour

2 tbsp caster sugar

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 medium egg

2 tbsp milk

1 tbsp vegetable oil (or sunflower oil)

2 tbsp Nutella

How to make:

Add the flour, sugar and cocoa powder to the mug and mix

Add the egg and mix

Add the milk, oil and finally add the Nutella

Give it a good mix until all the ingredients are combined

Centre your mug in the middle of the microwave and cook on HIGH for 3 minutes (depending how powerful your microwave is) or until it has stopped rising and is firm to the touch

Make sure you keep an eye on it and check it doesn't overflow

Allow to cool

Serve with a dusting of icing sugar and top with some raspberries
