In a 300ml coffee mug, break the egg and whisk a little with a fork. Add milk, oil and mix together. Mix in the nutella well. Add sugar, cocoa, salt and espresso powder. Fold in the flour with a fork. Mix well again, but don’t overdo it, else you will get a rubbery texture.

Microwave for 2 and half to 3 mins. The cake should be done after approximately 2 min 45 sec. For the rum sauce, in a saucepan, caramelize sugar on medium-high heat. Once caramelized, add butter and sugar and whisk continuously. Remove the saucepan from the burner and whisk in the rum and pour it over the cake.
