Day 147 – Brownie in a Mug


It’s another dessert in a mug! I love these because it means I don’t have to have a ton of dessert laying around my house. That’s just dangerous. Up next is the Brownie in a Mug.


1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch salt
2 Tbsp canola or other mild vegetable oil
2 Tbsp milk, coffee or water (I used milk, but I’m totally trying coffee next time!)


1. In a heatproof mug, stir together the dry ingredients until no lumps remain. Stir in the oil and milk until you have a thick paste.

2. Microwave on high for a minute, checking it after 30 seconds. It will be done when it’s springy on top but still a bit gooey. Mine took about 90 seconds.

These desserts in a mug have been really good, and this one is no exception. I still think that the Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug is my favorite, but the brownie was still good too.

  1. Just made this here at home. I tried 90 seconds and, despite my microwave being set to high, I felt it could use a little more cooking time. So, I nuked it for a total of 2 minutes and felt the consistency was about right. Verdict: it tastes okay. I probably won’t be making it again, but I would really like to try making the chocolate chip cookie in a mug!

  2. OMG! I tried this today, and I absolutely loved it. So easy and fun to make. Thanks. 🙂
