Hello Friends! How is your week going? Today I am sharing a fun and super simple dessert for two that is perfect for this weekend!

Today’s recipe is an easy one when you are looking for a tasty dessert to put together quickly in a mug. This is perfect for evenings when you are looking for a simple chocolate dessert. I love simple recipes like this one because I can use ingredients I already have on hand and the amount of clean up is minimal.

Today’s recipe is a wonderful chocolate mug cake recipe that is made in minutes. This recipe makes two mug cakes but you can have them both if you don’t want to share – they are that good!

I like to throw a few toffee bits on top of the batter before baking for some crunch.

Once they are baked, you can enjoy them in the mug or pop them out, which I like to do.

Then I like to spread a little Nutella on top ~ Decadent, I know!

Ingredients & Preparation Tips for this recipe

Hazelnut Spread – I have to go with Nutella on this one. It really is the best hazelnut spread in my opinion. I also like to spread the top of the cake with Nutella and a few bits for more flavor. I like to pop the cakes out of the mugs but you can enjoy them in the mugs if you wish.

Whipped Cream – Ok you really don’t have to have whipped cream for this recipe, but it makes a nice topping for the cakes. You can also top with a scoop of ice cream too!

Toffee Bits – I like to add a few toffee bits before baking, but you can top them with chocolate chips if you like. They just add a little flavor.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

  • Prepare the dry ingredients ahead of time and store until ready for use.
  • You can make these earlier in the day and just keep them covered like a small cake, but honestly, they take such little time to make, you might as well make them when you are ready for them.
