Cravings come in all sizes.

And then some voices in the back of the head cry foul. Too many calories , they say. Too much fat , they say.

Did you work out enough ? they ask, scoffing at the feeble responses the other side gives.

You don’t deserve any Nutella!

They hastily  remind you .  And then you begin to dream of a small bite of chocolate cake and some Nutella.  

So I’d rather avoid this torture and the binge that follows and eat a small bite when the craving strikes . Luckily enough ,there are  many around to share the calories with me .

 You have Nutella? Bring it out from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature. This allows you to almost accurately measure 90 g of  Nutella into a cup .

Crack an egg into the cup and whisk  it up together . Add in the flour and the baking powder and whisk to get a thick cake batter. 

If your cup of joy runs over , pour this into a clean cup, else cleaning up will be murder.

Top with a few nuts if you will.

I would suggest you don’t skip the salted caramel. That what takes this from mundane and ordinary to spectacular.

If you have store bought sauce , be sure to add salt.

Indian microwaves are generally 900watts. So run this in the centre at full power for 1 minutes.

If your Microwave is 700watts ,don’t fret , just add another 10 seconds.

If its too wet in the centre, microwave 10 seconds extra , maybe twice.

Fudgey , gooey is better than over baked and rubbery.

My Nutella microwave mug cake tatsed very brownie like. Yours will too.

So sift a bit of sugar. Oraybe top with some cherry compote. Or maybe ice cream or just cream

Maybe some more salted caramel sauce.

Just take a bite and blissfully forget those incessant voices for a while.

You deserve that bliss.
