1 Minute Microwave Brownie-Microwave Mug Meals

Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 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 tsp chocolate chips (omit if vegan)
Instructions
  1. In a microwavable mug (roughly 1 cup measurement) mix together all of the ingredients.
  2. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  3. If you don’t want to cook them off straight away, then place them in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
  4. 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.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream & enjoy!
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.

    Hi Gemma! Wonderful recipe, husband asks for it often. Wondering if I might be able to replace the flour with almond flour and the water with almond milk and still have yummy results..would either of those change the texture too much?

      Hi Kayla,
      You guys are so kind to your husbands! I think this is worth an experiment, give it a shot, and do let me know how it works for you,
      Gemma 🙂

    I think since its bitter, you should try and substitute some of the cocoa powder for some hot chocolate😊

    • Anushka on July 21, 2017 at 1:11 pm

      Hot chocolate powder

      That is a great suggestion Annushka, thank you for your input,
      Gemma 🙂

    I found this brownie to be really bitter (and I’m one to love bitter dark chocolate). I think it may depend on the type of cocoa powder used. If you’re using a sweet type like Hershey’s, maybe the brownie would taste better, but if you’re using a high quality baking cocoa powder, I think it’s a bit bitter. I would decrease the cocoa powder and add a bit more sugar next time for more of a brownie taste.

      hi Janelle,
      thank you for that insight.
      I like a good quality cocoa too, and indeed a little extra sugar would be a help. Milk can also reduce the bitterness, so cutting back the cocoa powder measurement may be sufficient. Thank you for your tip, always useful,
      Gemma 🙂

      Hi there,
      You may have found it too bitter for your taste. You can reduce the amount next time, or add more sugar. I would refer to adjust the cocoa. I am happy that you tried this one, now you can get it to suit your own taste,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Martina Guemble on July 11, 2017 at 8:21 pm

    I tried to make this, when I did it was like everything was separating there was a lot of what looks like oil and water not cooking with the brownie I had it in the microwave for 3 minutes before it would start cooking even a little bit.
    Is there something I did wrong, or any tips you can give me?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 12, 2017 at 2:12 am

      Hi Martina,
      I think there may be an issue with your microwave! this should not take much more than one minute to cook. Do go back to the recipe/video and see what you think may have been the issue too, if it is not the microwave, or the power selected, which should be full power, then I cannot imagine what went wrong. The shape and size of the cup/mug matters too. I use a 6 – 8 oz cup/mug, rather wider than deep, this allows the heat to transmit better through the food. I am sorry this was not good for you, Gemma 🙂

  9. Yang on July 11, 2017 at 12:37 pm

    Hi, Gemma! I liked this recipe so much that I wanted to make a bigger batch of it by baking it in the oven. If I make, let’s say, 8 recipes of it, how long should I bake in the oven? Is it possible? Thanks in advance.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 12, 2017 at 2:22 am

      Hi Yang,
      Yes, it is entirely possible. It will bake in about 15 mins at 180C/350F. It does not matter the size of the batch as it is baked as a layer. Give it a shot! do let us know here too, it will inspire other bold bakers,
      Gemma 🙂
