I do not know how many times I saw my daughter making this recipe on a Sunday morning. Today, I wanted to make it myself and taste my first microwave recipe.
I always try all my recipes before I post them. This morning I had some difficulties. I made this recipe twice. The first batch, I did not fill the mugs enough. For my second batch, I filled them too much and the dough went over the edges:(
I get so upset when I can’t take a great picture!
To get it just right, fill each cup 2/3 from the top (1/3 from the bottom), it will be perfect.
If you are a fan of Nutella, it’s a recipe for you:)
This quick and easy recipe is perfect for breakfast!
