Microwave Mug Brownie Recipe

From pizzas to pastas, breakfasts to desserts, there are a surprising amount of recipes that can be made in the microwave. Whether it’s a simple meal for one, or a last minute dessert you’re after, there are hundreds of different recipes to choose from.

So, here at Excelle we’ve scoured the Internet searching for some of these quick and easy microwave meals that can be made in just minutes. We felt the 1-minute brownie in a mug was just too hard to resist…Easter is only a few weeks away after all.



Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 1 minute

Serves: 1

You will need:

3 Tbsp. Plain flour

3 Tbsp. Brown sugar

3 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder

 50ml of flavourless oil (coconut oil, sunflower oil or vegetable oil)

3 Tbsp.(about 50ml) Water

1⁄2 Tsp. vanilla extract

Pinch of salt


Grab your favourite microwavable mug, chuck in all the ingredients and give it a good stir.

Microwave for 60 to 90 seconds (based on 800 watt microwave, cooking times may vary). For a more gooey centre cook for less time, and if you’re a chewy brownie fan cook for a little longer.

Allow your brownie to cool for a few minutes.

Top with a generous helping of ice cream and enjoy!
