2-Minute Mug Brownie

Diane Atherton


When I found this recipe, I knew I had to try it. Just the 2 of us here and a large pan of brownies is great when the grands are around but just to much for the 2 of us. I have no self control when it comes to sweets so this is perfect for me! This brownie in a mug is pure genious! Not to mention it's an awesome brownie!
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, pure heaven in a mug or in this case a ramkin.

I found this delightful recipe on the babble blog. Thank you babble for this awesome recipe.

  • 1/4 c
    all purpose flour
  • 1/4 c
    brown sugar, light, firmly packed
  • 2 Tbsp
    unsweetened cocoa
  • pinch
  • 2 Tbsp
    canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp

How to Make 2-Minute Mug Brownie


  1. Spray mug or ramkin lightly with Pam; set aside. NOTE: I used a 4 to 6 oz ramkin.
  2. Mix flour, brown sugar, cocoa and salt until no lumps remain. Stir in oil and milk. NOTE: I mixed this up in a large measuring cup.

    Original recipe instructs to mix in ramkin. I decided to spray my ramkin to ensure the brownie would not stick to dish for easier clean up and to use a measuring cup to mix it up.
  3. Spoon into ramkin. Microwave 1 minute on high. If you have a powerful microwave, check after 30 seconds. It's done when it's puffed and springy to touch. NOTE: it will still be slightly gooey on top. A total of 1 minute should do it but if not, microwave an additional 15 seconds and check again.
