5 minute craft recipe destroyed my microwave


In this video, debunking fake recipes on youtube, is water glassing eggs safe and is air chilled chicken superior to water chilled chicken.

I managed to find a new microwave at a second hand store, replaced the broken light globe that was in it and it’s all ready for debunking.

Yummy nutella mug cake in the microwave:
1/2 cup nutella
1 egg
2 tablespoon plain all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Place the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.

Split the mixture between two mugs and microwave each one separately for 90 seconds. Putting it all in one mug may cause it to overflow, unless you have huge mugs.

    Really good recipe! Took me about 5 minutes to make, very affordable to make too, I was craving a sweet dessert but we had barely anything in the house, luckily this doesn’t call for many ingredients! Much better than any other mug cakes I’ve tried to make. Thanks Ann!

    Dear Sue,
    just for your interest : In Germany the Nutella Jar is made out of glass.

    This made such a soft and fluffy cake, thank you so much! I just estimated the measurements because I’m in a student dorm right now and don’t have measuring cups or scales, and it still turned out amazing 🙂

    How many Watts should I set my oven to for cooking for 90s?

    Is there anything I could use as a substitute for Nutella?

      We are going to try one set of Nutella cakes and one set of Peanut Butter cakes (made with Skippy creamy natural) for the four of us tonight. We are hoping the nut butters are similar enough to work.

      So you might try another nut butter with similar fat, sugar, carb content and see if it works? I think food scientist Ann would approve of that kind of experimentation?!

    • the main ingredient is nutella.

      Ann said in the video she made this recipe for that the Nutella provides the fat, sugar, and cocoa for this recipe. I’m no baker but I think any nut butter could substitute the Nutella, with varying flavor and sweetness of course. Otherwise you would likely need to substitute the Nutella with some proportions of butter/oil, sugar, and cocoa powder.

    Hi, I love your content !
    I tried your recipe and it’s the best mug cake recipe I’ve tried so far ( and I’ve done quite a lot ).
    For me 50s at 900w was enough. I was left with a fluffy, moist yet not undercooked cake. So tasty !

    Would It still take 90 seconds if I put it in an oven?

    Saw your video yesterday and had a massive craving for the cake! I made it today for myself and my husband. We ate it with ice cream and it was sooooo good! Thank you for the recipe!

    It was super tasty!
    One note though, my microwave is only 700 watts, I did have to do 2 more rounds of 1 min each because it kept deflating when I opened the microwave!

    It was so warm and chocolatey, the perfect winter treat! Thank you so much, Ann!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it Sue
