In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, and baking powder until well combined.
Add the whole milk, canola oil, and Nutella to the bowl of dry ingredients. Whisk until the batter is smooth.
Pour the Nutella mug cake batter into a large microwave-safe mug. Your mug must be able to hold at least 10 ounces (1¼ cups) of liquid. A cappuccino mug works great for this recipe.
Microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. Depending on the power of your microwave, you may need an additional 10 to 15 seconds of cook time.
You can add a dollop (2 to 3 teaspoons) of additional Nutella to the top of your warm mug cake for garnish.
Double this perfect dessert recipe to share this rich cake with a friend. Microwave Nutella mug cakes one at a time if you are making more than one.
A standard coffee mug will also work for this single-serving dessert if you do not have a cappuccino mug. It just needs to be large enough. If your mug is a 12 to 14-ounce size, then your mug cake will not fill the mug to the top.
I used a 1000-watt microwave oven for this chocolate Nutella mug cake recipe. The cooking time will vary depending on your microwave specifications.
