Nutella Cake in 2 minutes

Hey, so it’s been a while since I posted. I’ve been so busy with school, and it’s the time of the year when most bloggers just quit posting or take a break, but I don’t want to do that, because I made a commitment, and I love blogging, and I know if you take breaks or shortcuts, it’s much harder to get back up. On a completely unrelated- but still very important note- it’s raining. It’s raining so hard, but the sound is so… relaxing. I’m sitting at my desk by the window, experiencing the soft cold wind, the beautiful rain smell, and the relaxing sound.

Anyways, so today I wanted to whip up a quick desert, and there’s this recipe I found that I wanted to try out, but I couldn’t at that time because one of the main ingredients was missing. Today I bought that main ingredient- nutella. So are you ready for something that’s basically going to be your breakfast/lunch/dinner from now on? You’re going to love it so much. So. Much. So much, that senpai will notice it. Senpai won’t notice YOU, but they will most definitely notice recipe. Sorry, but that’s just how it works. Okay? Okay.

Now you probably know the many, many, many, many, many ways you can enjoy Nutella. On a cracker, in a sandwich- or even just with a spoon. But think of something greater. Something that can change history. NUTELLA CAKE. In 2 minutes. Yes. Are you ready? Okay-

                                                                                   ©

Ingredients

4 tablespoons self-rising flour

4 tablespoons sugar

1 egg

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

3 tablespoons Nutella

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Pour ingredients in the largest mug you own.
  3. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes (Depends on what microwave you have)
  4. When it’s finished and has cooled down a bit, add an extra dump of nutella on it, and then whipped cream.

Tell me if you try it out!

Enjoy this delicious and quick dessert!

🎁Holiday DIY Gift Guide🎁

Hey! Ever need a last-minute gift? Here are some easy and creative DIY Gift ideas! Christmas is just 5 days away, and let’s face it, there’s always that Christmas where you need to find a gift for a very complicated person, and you don’t have the time or whatever, but guess what? I’m going to be showing you some really cool ideas, some very simple DIY’s for your friend, your mom, or whoever  you’d like. 🙂 It’s perfect for this time of year, and these cute gift ideas can be used for anytime for year, like for a friend’s birthday, or any occasion, or person you would need a fun, personalized and cute gift! This is way more personal, and just as artsy!

Sharpie Mug🎁
 
I literally just found this online, whoa it’s like amazing. Seriously.
     All you need is a plain mug, and a few colorful oil-based sharpie markers in hand.You really could customize it however you’d like but I’m digging the idea of using stickers and then using your pen around them. Once you pull them off it looks really impressive. And if you make a mistake, chill. Just use a little rubbing alcohol, and it’ll wipe the sharpie right off. Plus, if you want the sharpie to be permanent use one of those oven things which I’ve forgotten the name of. I know it starts with K. Right?
!
 Homemade Luxurious Soap🎁
Had I known you can make these in a mini-muffin pan, I would have made them a long, long time ago! This is perfect for your luxurious bath, like, seriously, these are freaking amazing. If you like working in the kitchen, this might be the perfect gift idea for you. Literally just use soap powder. Once they’re finished, package them up in mason jars with a pretty ribbon.

Chef Shadow- How to Make a Healthy Mixed Berries Smoothie

Aloha, everyone! Who doesn’t miss the taste of a delicious, berry smoothie? There are two cons about them. Fresh berries (black berries, blue berries, raspberries) are not always in season, and smoothies are often very fatty. In this post, I’m going to be showing you how to make a ‘Healthy Mixed Berries Smoothie’. It’s guilt-free, and absolutely delicious!

shadowsparkleingredientsheader

  • Cold Water
  • Ice Cubes
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries

shadowsparkledirections

It’s really easy! Just combine all of the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.

Tips

  • You can add some honey for a small taste, but NO sugar
  • I did this, and so can you: Add one or two banana’s into the mix
  • The good thing about frozen mixed berries is that you know that they won’t be as sour and unripe and sour as berries that are overpriced if not in season.

That’s all for today! Enjoy your healthy, simple, quick and delicious smoothie! Try it out! ❤

  • 90 g Melted butter (Notice it says MELTED not Softened. If you use softened, it will be mixed in chunks. You need to let it dissolve.) About 6.3 tablespoons.

  • Whisk (Can be electronic)
  • Wooden Spoon/Table Spoon for mixing butter and biscuit crumbs

1. Mix the melted butter with the biscuit crumbs using a wooden spoon or table spoon. Don’t use an electric mix, as we want to keep the biscuity texture.)
