    Heat the milk in a microwave or small pan with the Nutella and whisk until melted. Leave to cool then whisk in the 2 tbsp butter, egg and sugar.

  • Step 2

    Put the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a bowl and mix in the salt. Gradually whisk the wet into the dry ingredients to make a batter. Tip into a jug.
