The Weekend ReTREAT: Triple Chocolate Mug Cake



You know what time it is.  Only this time, it’s a holiday weekend, so you have a whole extra day to make a mug cake!  A rich triple chocolate one at that.

This week was a little quiet on the blog. I feel like I used up all my mojo on that layer cake. Like after I typed up that recipe I needed a cigarette or something.  I did have something else I had planned on sharing, but it didn’t turn out quite right.  And if you can’t do something right, don’t post anything at all.  That’s the saying, right? I do have some delicious things lined up to share next week that I’m pretty excited about. But enough about the future, let’s focus on here and now.

For the Cake
  1. 1 oz butter, melted
  2. 1 egg
  3. 4 tbsp sugar
  4. 6 tbsp flour
  5. 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  6. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  7. 1 tbsp light cream
  8. 2 tbsp chocolate chips
  9. 1 tbsp Nutella
  10. 1 tbsp ground or coarsely chopped hazelnuts
  1. In a microwave safe mug, beat together the egg, sugar, and melted butter with a fork until combined
  2. One by one add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, light cream, and chocolate chips, beating in completely before adding the next
  3. Take the hazelnut spread and spread it around the rim of the mug
  4. Sprinkle ground hazelnuts onto rim
  5. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds
  6. Allow to cool slightly before enjoying
  1. *This definitely has a more brownie consistency to it than cake
  2. *If you want to buy, or have crunchy hazelnut spread around, use that in place of the Nutella and ground hazelnuts. I didn't have what the recipe called for, so I substituted my own option

 Like I mentioned earlier, this is a RICH cake. Basically a mug brownie. I’d recommend sharing it if you have the option.  I couldn’t even finish mine.  It was intense.


Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend! I hope it’s filled with loved ones and grilled meats.  And a mug cake.

We all deserve a little treat.....share!
