When the craving strikes for something sweet and sticky in a hurry, try this two minute microwave brownie for instant satisfaction. This recipe works best as a single cup serving, additional servings should be made individually in their own mug, do not double the recipe.

The best thing about this recipe is that your brownie is always freshly made so it really tastes great.

Ingredients To Make A Mug Brownie

Makes 1 Serving, Prep Time 30seconds, Cooking Time 1 Minute 30 Seconds (1000W Microwave)

  • 1 Medium Egg
  • 4 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp Sunflower Oil

How To Make The Mug Brownie

Crack the egg into a cup, add the sugar then oil then flour and finally the cocoa. Mix together with a fork until a thick, smooth and creamy brown batter is formed.

Microwave on high for 1 minutes and 30 seconds in an 1000W microwave. Cooking time will vary with microwave wattage, a 700W microwave will take about 1 minute and 40 seconds while a 1200W microwave will wake only 1 minutes and 20 seconds. You may need to experiment a bit in the beginning to get used to how quickly your microwave cooks your brownie but once you’ve got it right, write down the time and keep it for next time.

Be careful when you take your brownie out of the microwave as the cup is going to be extremely hot. Allow it to stand for a minute or so before serving so that it cools down.

Serve the brownie with a dash of custard (preferably cold) or a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
