Nutella Mug Cake

Nutella Mug Cake

Ah, who doesn't like Nutella. I think that it is against human nature to hate such a creation. Working as a cashier at Safeway, I would see many people buy tubs and tubs of Nutella, not caring that it's $8 a pop. They probably could even double the price and people would keep buying it.

Yes, it is another creation that requires only a mug and a microwave as baking tools. I was going to buy whipping cream or something to put on top of it, because then this cake would be KILLER, but I couldn't wait long enough. I know that if I were to have waited a day longer, all the Nutella would have been gone. You see, I have a problem. I am Cathleen, and I am a Nutella addict. I eat it right out of the bowl, telling myself aloud "alright, this is my last spoonful" as my spoon dives a second, third, forth time into the jar. All involuntarily. My hand has a mind of its own. This is why I can only bake a personal-sized cake with Nutella.
