Here’s the story of this Microwave Mug Brownie, or Brownie Mug Cake, whichever your heart desires. So, four days ago I had a craving. For a brownie.

You know, those cravings? The ones you try to ignore but no matter what everything begins to look like a brownie? Well yeah, I ignored it for a day. And it only got worse.

Then I tried to buy one, that was a disaster. Took two bites out of it and threw it away. I didn’t want to bake a whole batch…because then I might eat a whole batch.

Wait, what? Bake just one? In 60 seconds? Seriously? That’s a brilliant idea! That sounds like a Microwave Mug Brownie!

HOW TO MAKE A MICROWAVE MUG BROWNIE – STEP BY STEP

So, that’s 4 tbsp of flour, 4 tbsp of sugar, 2 tbsp of oil, 2 tbsp of cocoa powder, 2 tbsp of water, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt mixed with the flour. Looking good so far. Now we need a cup.

Meet my favourite cup. Hi cup.

And my favourite M&M. You know, despite everyone thinking pink is my favourite colour, I actually prefer green. My walls are green. This bed sheet i’m lying on while typing this is green. My towel is green. Okay, you get the point.

Pink is second.

Okay let’s mix the water with the oil, and add in 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Okay, add the sugar and the cocoa powder. Now mix! You can use a fork, that’s what I did.

Now the flour and the salt. Get ready for it.

PLEASE DO NOT EAT THIS LIKE THIS. Well, technically, you could, since there are no raw eggs or so…but come on we only have to wait like a little bit to cook it! Hold on!

And because I’m greedy Just for kicks I added in some chocolate chips. Yes, I opened an entire container of chocolate chips to get a tablespoon. The craving was that bad.

Into the microwave you go! Say a little prayer that it doesn’t explode everywhere.
I put mine on 60 seconds – it was perfect.

Come to Mama.

Can I just take a minute while this is cooling to admit that I ate this WAY too quick, burnt myself and forced myself to be patient. Have you ever smelt brownies baking? Yes, well imagine that happening in less than a minute. I couldn’t wait, literally.

Let’s dig in.

This Microwave Mug Brownie was actually, like, really good.
Really really good.
All the delicious flavours of a brownie, chewy and fudgy. Oh yes.

She’s also very happy.

    Just made this – first mug cake ever – and used gluten free plain flour as I’m coeliac – Doves Freee (UK) and it worked brilliantly. Very many thanks

    Easy peasy, chocolatey, delicious and so so simple. I used vegetable oil instead of coconut and it turned out great. I’m absolutely gonna make this mug cake again because its the best and quickest way to fulfill the craving for brownies. I think this would be good with other additions too, like oreos or melted peanut butter on top. So happy I found this tasty vegan treat!

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Awesome Koren! We’re so happy that you enjoyed this recipe! Jess actually started making it to slow down her brownie consumption lol! Thanks so much for reading!

    This is so delicious. And incredibly easy. I accidentally used teaspoon instead of tablespoon measurements for the oil and water, and when I realized it before putting the mug in the microwave I added some more of each, and everything still turned out perfectly.

  7. Natalie says:

    Thank you for this simple recipe. I just made it, I was really craving something sweet and chocolatey and had limited ingredients in my house. It has turned out so well, even though I used gluten free rice flour. Thank you 🙂

    Super yummy! Tastes like a flourless chocolate cake (my favorite) even though it has a little flour in it. Dense, fudgey & super chocolatey. I made the recipe as is and it was delicious! This was sweet (not too sweet), but I miiiiiiight halve the sugar next time to make it more like an extra dark chocolate brownie, which I absolutely love. I only had semi-sweet mini chips so I could try dark chocolate chips next time to give it more of a dark or bittersweet flavor. I can already guarantee there will be many more “next times”! So hard to decide if I like this one or your banana bread mug cake better? Both so good! Thanks for the perfect quick mini desserts that hit the spot when that sweet craving strikes but you don’t want to make a whole pan.

  9. Annie says:

    wow AMAZING!! One thing – you mention 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract in the instructions but not the ingredients list, so I almost missed putting it in. Thank you for this delicious recipe!

    This is so yummy! It’s quick and easy and totally delicious. It is SUPER rich, so now when I make it I cut the recipe in half and add a scoop of vegan vanilla ice cream 😋

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Thank you so much for the review, Amanda. We love the idea of an ice cream addition.
