Here’s what you can do with a mug, a microwave oven and some Nutella.

I’m sure you have heard of cakes that can be made in the microwave in less than 5 minutes. I’m also sure you have seen, perhaps even tried a few recipes storming the web for quite sometime now.
The only downside is the number of pounds it packs—it’s seriously high on the calories. So if you are calorie conscious, make smaller servings in small mugs so you can share it with others. I’d suggest doing three small mugs instead of 2 medium ones.
The best part is, you don’t even need a topping like whipped cream or ice cream to enjoy this dish, it’s absolutely delish on its own. I did the cream topping just for the photographs—scooped it out before enjoying the cake with pieces of fresh strawberries, my style.
