Why this recipe works

Everyone loves cake. So when offered a cake that can be whipped up in less than 2 minutes, with the addition of KINDER BUENO, we know we’re onto a winner. It’s high in protein, thanks to the *chocolate whey protein* imbed affiliate and it’s creamy and nutty, thanks to the nutella. This mug cake recipe will be part of your weekly, if not daily, routine in no time.

Ingredients

Kinder bueno

The chocolate, insta/tiktok-sensation that is worth all of it’s hype. The perfect cherry on top of this chocolate mug cake.

Oat flour

Using oats rather than flour provides more of a breakfast feel to this mug cake recipe. It also means that the recipe is gluten free.

Egg

The egg not only adds protein and nutrients to this protein kinder bueno cake, but it also helps all of the ingredients to bind together to form the best mug cake recipe.

Chocolate Protein Powder

I used Impact Whey chocolate protein powder which provides an amazing 18g of protein per serving. When taking into consideration the egg and other ingredients, the total protein for this mug cake recipe is 35g!

Nutella

The nutella surprise in the middle of this chocolate cake replicates the creamy hazelnut centre in a kinder bueno, so we have two nutty moments incorporated in this cake.

Then add a tbsp of nutella into the mixture, covering it with the chocolate mix. Make sure it is submerged as this will make the nice soft middle. Place your mug in the microwave for around 60 seconds.

Just add a couple of pieces of Kinder bueno to the top and you are ready for a treat!

FAQ

What is a mug cake?

A mug cake is usually a microwavable dessert/snack that usually comes together within minutes. Usually all the ingredients can be mixed within the mug, making it the perfect quick snack/dessert as there is minimal prep/ cleaning up.

Can I replace with a different chocolate bar?

Yes, feel free to top this mug cake with a portion of any of your favourite chocolate bars. Crumbled daim bar is on my list to try, mmmm.

How do I know if it’s cooked fully?

After 60 seconds, the cake starts to rise in the microwave and you can tell that it’s starting to cook as the crust forms on top. When you pull it out of the microwave, it’ll deflate slightly and then you’re good to go. The nutella will provide a gooey, creamy centre so don’t panic if you think this is uncooked!
