Hi Bold Bakers!

This indulgent Chocolate Brownie in a Mug is a single-serving of heaven just for you and possibly the best, fudgiest brownie ever (other than my Best-Ever Brownies). It’s my 1 Minute Microwave Mug Brownie!

How Long Does It Take To Make A Brownie in a Mug?

Everyone loves a Chocolate Brownie! Whether you are a chewy brownie lover or a fudgy gooey Brownie lover, at the end of the day we all love the same cake. The fact that you can mix it in less than 5 minutes and cook it in 1 minute seems too good to be true, but it’s not! My microwave mug brownie is the real deal!

The Secret to my Mug Cake & Brownie Recipes!

Mug cakes made in the microwave are no longer dried wrinkled up cake at the bottom of your mug. When you microwave a mug dessert, you’re actually steaming the batter so it micro-bakes up moist and delicious. Just be sure not to overcook your brownie. My 100+ Mug Cake recipes are sophisticated, delicious and something that you will not believe was made in a microwave in minutes.

Servings: 1
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 1 min
Total Time 6 mins
Enjoy a single-serving, chocolatey brownie in a mug in no time with my 1 Minute Microwave Mug Brownie recipe!
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 3 tablespoons flavorless oil (canola oil/coconut oil/sunflower oil)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons chocolate chips

Instructions

  • In a microwavable mug (roughly 1 cup measurement) mix together all of the ingredients.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • If you don’t want to cook them off straight away, then place them in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
  • Microwave for 45-60 seconds. (Timing is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary). Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream & enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)
Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook
Nutritional value: The calories are high preserving due to sugar and oil. To lower these you can use more natural sugars and oil like coconut.

This isn’t for the recipe, but hopefully someone has an answer. I have a bunch of Mug Treats (Betty Crocker) and want to make them into cupcakes and bake in the oven. How would I go about doing this? Temp, time, additions, subtractions? Thanks

I’ve had my fair share of chocolately mug recipes, but this one takes the cake! Or.. the brownie?! Rich, soft, and full of delicious chocolate, how can you go wrong?! This recipe easily halves if you’re looking for just a taste — just be sure to watch that cook time! Ice cream on top is definitely not optional! 🙂

I tried this recipe and was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful this turned out. You know those Hungrymen brownies that you fight and bribe your family for? We’ll fight no more, though this recipe is packed with more Chocolate flavor than the original Microwavable Treat. I actually cooked it in a Bowl instead of a mug and used vegetable oil instead of any other specialty oil. I really just used whatever was on the Shelf and chopped up some of my own mixed chocolate. Over all this took me two minutes to cook with a slightly wet middle(which Mum and… Read more »

Amazing for such a simple recipe!! I also found that you could split the batter between two cups if you want there to be two brownies.

I made this as a little dessert for myself, and oh my! It was SO rich and fudgy and gooey 🙂 I had to split it with my son because I cannot justify the amount of calories that ONE of these has 🙁 But I still enjoyed it with a bit of Cappucino frozen yogurt! Is there a way to cut down on the calories? I know it’s sacrilege to make a BROWNIE low calorie, but I’m trying to lose weight right now and I’d still love to be able to indulge a treat now and then! Great recipe BTW!… Read more »

Thanks for a great and quick recipe! Hubby said he felt like a brownie after dinner and tomorrow is fathers day so I figured I couldn’t deny him the treat.
He thought it was delicious!
I added some 70% dark chocolate chunks in, instead of the chocolate chips and they were a great addition.
