Gooey Nutella Microwave Mug Cake #SummerDessertWeek

This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.

    Welcome to the first #SummerDessertWeek event hosted by Angie from Big Bear's Wife. We're so glad that you've joined us for this week long event of desserts and giveaways. You're going to love what we have in store for you.
To start this dessert filled week out, I have a delicious recipe to share: Gooey Nutella Microwave Mug Cake . This decadent cake is made in a coffee mug with 3 basic ingredients and cooks in one minute in the microwave! It's an easy single treat or make a few in just minutes!

Mug cakes have always been a favorite of mine, especially to make with my kids.
For this dessert I use Nutella as the base but I have also made peanut butter an chocolate chip cookie mug cakes too.
