BIY: Brownie In A Mug (Review!)

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have read some of my tweets on Tuesday all about this recipe.  I came across a recipe from called "Brownie in a Mug."  The recipe is super simple and tastes amazing!  Vegan friends and egg allergies, you can make this too - no eggs necessary!

I love to bake, but don't always want to make a full batch.  This recipe makes it soooo easy (and super fast) to fix my craving without making too much.  One mug-brownie took about 5 minutes to prep, mix and "bake."

Serves: 1 (could be two if you feel like sharing)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
5 tablespoons water

  •  Add all of dry ingredients to mug.
  •  Mix well with a fork or small whisk until blended.
  •  Add oil and water. 
  • Mix well (add mix-ins if using). 
  • Put in the microwave and cook on high heat for 1 minute 40 seconds - 2 minutes.
  • Add toppings or a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!
I topped mine with hot fudge and rainbow sprinkles (my fav combination!), let it cool for about 3 minutes and gobbled it up.  This was such an easy snack and so filling!  I "baked" it for the full two minutes, because I like my brownies to be more cakey.  If you want it to be super soft or goey, heat for less time.  Top with anything you want or add in something fun like orange, banana, peanut butter, chocolate chips, mint/choco chips, etc. to make it your very own creation.

I give this recipe 4 stars - it's not completely a "brownie" in my mind but super close!  Fudgy, goey, soft and yummy.  Be sure to follow the recipe to a T or else it will not turn out correctly.  Some mix-ins (such as marshmallow or jam) can compromise the integrity of the recipe, so I suggest adding those as a topping.  This recipe is great for college kids - especially those without any other source of cooking except a microwave.

Disclaimer: did not send this recipe to me for promotional purposes.  I made this recipe simply because I wanted brownies and was super curious to try it out.

Happy Baking!
