How to Make Brownie in a Mug

Brownie in a Mug - CookingWithTalia.comWho doesn’t like a chocolate brownie?!  

Mum found a recipe on the internet one day for Brownie in a Mug and made it for herself late one night ~ I was still up and Mum shared some with me!  It was really yum but very sweet so we changed the recipe and put in less sugar and more water.  It is still really rich to eat – one mug is enough for me and my brother!

This recipe is quick and easy to make but you do need a microwave and this is one of those “every now and then” sweet treats!

Type:  Dessert Recipe
Prep time:  Less than 5 minutes
Cook time:  1 min 40 secs on high in the microwave
Serving size:  1 mug (1-2 people)

The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy the video below:


  • 1/4 cup white flour
  • 2 tbsps sugar (raw or white)
  • 2 tbsps baking cocoa
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 4 tbsps water
  • Ice Cream (optional and recommended!!)


  1. Add all the dry ingredients to a large mug
  2. Add the oil and water
  3. Mix well until smooth and consistent (make sure you get all the lumps of flour out!)
  4. Put it in the microwave and cook for 1 minute and 40 seconds on high
  5. Remove carefully (it will be hot!) and add ice cream – as little or as much you like

And ENJOY!!!
