    HOLY CRAP that looks good! I’m making this over the weekend when my mom comes. She LOVES hazelnut so much that I made sure to have a bottle of Frangelico ready … hmm … I wonder what it would taste like if I added that to it. :)

      Yeah, give it a shot! You might want to increase the sugar a bit b/c the Justin’s butter definitely has some in it and pb doesn’t.

    I followed your recipe for chocolate hazelnut mug cake and found them delicious. Got anything for apple pie :)

      Yay, so glad you liked it! I haven’t tried anything with apples yet in the mug cake department but there is a good apple cake recipe on my recipe page that’s pretty simple and seriously delicious!

      I found it at my local health food/wannabe Whole Foods store. I think I’ve seen it in some “progressive” grocery stores though. There’s always online and nutella would be a fine substitute, same flavor profile.

      Mug cakes usually are. Add 2 Tbsp of beaten egg (I freeze 2T at a time in ice cube trays) for a better texture.

    The language used under the picture was offensive and I will not use your website in the future.

      Haha. Well then, thank you so much for taking the time to comment and let me know. If a bleeped out curse word online is offensive, I kind of feel sorry for you.
