Nutella and peanut butter are a marriage made in mug cake heaven!
Not only is the sponge a sweet, salty and nutty delight, but there is also a pool of warm Nutella and peanut butter at the bottom.
Preparation time: 2 minutes.
Microwave: 1 minute, 40 seconds
Cool: 2 minutes.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 medium egg
- 2 tablespoons caster sugar
- 3 tablespoons self-raising flour
- a pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons Nutella
- A large microwavable mug
Using a fork, beat together the vegetable oil and egg in a mug.
Add the sugar and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the flour and salt, and mix well until you have a smooth batter.
Add 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of the Nutella into the mixture and stir until they are both fully combined.
Drop the remaining peanut butter and Nutella on top of the mixture, along with 1 teaspoon of water, but do not mix them in.
Microwave for 1 minute 40 seconds at 800W. The cake will rise, and should still be quite wet to touch. (It also may well drip a little down the sides of the mug as it is such a moist batter).
Leave the mug cake to cool for 2 minutes before eating, then devour.
