A Mug Full of Chocolate Cake

I was on Facebook checking out a giveaway on a friend's jewelry business page Purabellezza of Etsy when I ran across a recipe my friend shared on her page from someone else's blog. I immediately began following that second person's blog- livelovepasta.com, and I just made my first recipe off of it! Here is a link to the recipe I tried: http://livelovepasta.com/2011/05/nutella-mug-cake/. I altered a few ingredients to ones I had on hand:

4 Tb Aunt Jemima's Buttermilk Pancake Mix
4 Tb Granulated Sugar
3 Tb Cocoa
3 Tb Jiff Mocha Cappuccino Hazelnut Spread
3 Tb Entenmann's Hazelnut Coffee
3 Tb Oil
1 Egg

I stirred these all together in my mug with a fork and them zapped my cake batter for 3 minutes in the microwave. So fast. So good. So fresh & hot. It would be even more amazing with ice cream.
