Do you know how to make chocolate cake in a mug?

Easy, fast and sweet! On those cold afternoons at home when your stomach asks for comfort with a snack, a chocolate cake made in a mug can be a good option. Put on the apron, prepare the ingredients and with the help of the microwave you have the cake ready in a few minutes.

In this recipe, sweet Nutella joins the irresistible chocolate – that is, it’s not the healthiest snack in the world, but we use dark chocolate and brown sugar to balance the sugar balance. And it’s one pint per person, no cheating!

This recipe is from Casal Mistério, who publishes his content on the Instagram social network, and was published by Pumpkin, TAG’s partner site.
