Nutella Mug Cake

Nutella Mug Cake
I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix. I modified the classic mug cake recipe, added Nutella, and a little more milk and oil than I had been using before. The results were beyond amazing. I made these quick desserts today for my father and sister-in-law. Nutella Mug Cake Ingredients 4 tablespoons self rising flour 4 tablespoons white granulated sugar 1 egg 3 tablespoons cocoa powder 3 tablespoons Nutella 3 tablespoons milk 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil Method 1. 2. Note: Depending on the wattage of your microwave, you may have to increase cooking time. Makes 1 very large serving. For even more desserts in jar check out our slideshow “Contain Yourself! And if you love Nutella, you’ll devour these 15 spell-binding recipes!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies - StumbleUpon Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life. I guess that’s why they call him Mr. Chocolate! These are a chocolate chip cookie of another color, that’s for sure.

Chemistry of Cast Iron Seasoning: A Science-Based How-To The post after this one on “black rust” describes why you should heat the pan before applying oil for seasoning. This helps the seasoning to adhere and makes the pan pleasantly black. In a previous post, I illustrated how I cleaned and reseasoned an antique cast iron popover pan. This was my first attempt, and my seasoning technique was somewhat haphazard because I couldn’t find consistent, science-based advice.

Tiny Tarts I love giving thoughtful homemade gifts to friends and family. I especially love it when the gift is fun to make and frugal to buy. So when I discovered the delicious and super cute world of goodies in a jar, I decided to put a lid on it and bake up a batch of pie in a jar. I’ve written about jarred gifts before in 8 Homemade Gifts in a Jar — so check it out if you’re less into pastry and more into mixes in a jar. Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) or to eat during a football game. Or, make it for dinner and serve with a salad.

Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread Guess what… You probably already have all the ingredients to make this: So there’s no excuse not to make it. Lame excuse #1: “But I’m at work right now and can’t leave my office.” Solution: Tell your boss you’re taking the rest of the day off for personal reasons.

Beyond Pasta: 10 Delicious Polenta and Risotto Dishes Recipe Roundup We are talking Italian cuisine all week, here at The Kitchn, but we admit that it's been a little pasta-heavy so far. So let's turn our attention to the other two starchy dishes that Italians have perfected, and that we love exceedingly: Polenta and risotto. Polenta, of course, is a simple dish made with fine or coarse cornmeal (you can make it with pretty much any cornmeal in your kitchen) and as such it's the European cousin of grits. It's cooked in boiling water, milk, or stock, and it makes a wonderful base for toppings of spicy greens, pulled meats, or sauces. Risotto is the stirred rice dish that has a reputation for being quite finicky — but honestly, we've never had a truly awful risotto.

Titanic –– Love, Courage and Apple Meringue The Titanic sank 100 years ago on April 15th, 1912. It is extraordinary that even after 100 years, the doomed Titanic continues to fascinate. My friends at 12 Bottle Bar and I are in a Titanic mood as the anniversary approaches, and why not?
