Brownie in 5 minutes: brownie in a mug

Brownie en 5 minutos

Last week I was given the chance to share a recipe on the radio, thanks to Fernando from I love aceite. This time I wanted to present a recipe anyone at home could prepare, that is why I chose this Nutella caramel brownie cake. It is so easy you will not need molds, kitchen scales, or any cooking experience… The problem? It is too good, and ready in 5 minutes!! Prepare this recipe at your own risk 😛

    Am a vegetarian. Can I make this without the egg? What should I substitute it with?

    Hi, I would really like to give this one a shot. Just a small query though. Is there a substitute for nutella that I can try?
