This microwave brownie recipe is as easy as it gets, so delicious and so satisfying! It really is no rocket science in tossing a couple of ingredients together and then microwave for a minute or so. They’re a safe way to satisfy a sweet tooth, at least the way I make them, with less sugar. And if paired with the right fruit that complements the cocoa flavor, such as berries, you could totally score some healthy factor too!

Brownie in a cup recipe

It only takes approximately 3 minutes to make a microwave brownie recipe from start to finish (it took way longer to write this post; not fair!) and you get to make just as much or as little as you want to, so no binge eating. Normally when you bake a whole batch of brownies in the oven you most likely end up eating more than just one, right? So forget about any other brownie recipe, this microwave brownie recipe is exactly what you need!

Brownie in a cup

Easy mug brownie

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup self-raising flour, sifted
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp icing sugar (optional – for dusting)
  • vanilla ice cream (optional, but why wouldn’t you, really?)

Directions:

  • Add flour to a cup, then stir in sugar, cocoa, oil and water
  • Mix all together until you get a smooth texture. You’ll need to end up with a soft, creamy mixture so if you’re not totally happy with your result, add a few more drops of water.
  • Place into the microwave on highest setting, for 1 min 40 seconds. You may need to experiment a little with that as microwaves have different settings.
  • Dust icing sugar
  • Add a scoop of ice cream (optional; but again, why wouldn’t you?) and serve immediately.
  • Enjoy your microwave brownie recipe!

  1. Love microwave recipes!! Looks delicious!! I’m reeeeally looking forward to try this, maybe even today hahah Thanks! x)

  2. One for me to add to my Try list, I played with a few microwave cake recipes but not quite right, this one looks good!

  3. Now I won’t be able to stop making brownies especially when it’s this quick!! It looks delicious!

  4. Hi! I really would like to try this recipe. But I am confused by 2 things.
    1) What does this measurement mean? – – “2 tbsp cup caster sugar”
    2) Please excuse me if this is a dumb ques. But what is caster sugar?
    thnx! Elizabeth

    1. Hi Elizabeth. I’m so sorry, I meant 2 tablespoons, not cups. Thanks for pointing that out, I’ll adjust the recipe right now. Caster sugar is a type of very finely granulated sugar but in my experience, any sugar works if mixed really well with all ingredients. Powdered/icing sugar works fine too.

  5. You are killing me with all this brownie goodness….in a cup at that! I have always enjoyed eating out of cups….don’t know why. These look fantastic!
