  • 4 ounces (115g) cream cheese,at room temperature
  • 1 cup (8oz/ 225g) sour cream/ yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 egg white , slightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon flour (prevents liquid from forming)
  • Nutella
  • Oreo cookies (around 2)
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, yogurt ( or sour cream) ,vanilla, sugar, egg whites and flour until light and fluffy. This recipe makes 3 cheesecakes.
  2. In a microwavable mug, sprinkle a layer of Oreo cookie crumbs in the bottom of your mug to create your cheesecake base.
  3. To make 1 cheesecake: Mix together ½ cup (4oz/115g) Cheesecake base and 1 generous tablespoon Nutella
  4. Pour over your Nutella Cheesecake batter
  5. CAUTION: Each mug cake takes roughly 45seconds-1 minute. Microwave until you see A bubble in the center, and then STOP cooking. This will take seonds, maybe 15 or more. Take it out and check it. Microwave for short intervals until you see the edge of the cheesecake firm but make sure the center is jiggly. If it is allowed to bubble and cook further, the mixture will "break" and you'll need to start over. Make a note of the successful cooking time for your microwave. Take out of the microwave and let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate until fully chilled, about 2 hours. If any liquid has formed, carefully pour out. Sprinkle with some hazelnuts and pipe freshly whipped cream on top and you are ready to eat.
