Step 2: Microwaving

Microwave on high for roughly a minute. You may have to microwave it longer or shorter, depending on your microwave, but the brownie should still be wet in the center when done.
<p>Hey guys. Pro(ish) Tip.</p><p>Mix the dry ingredients in bulk and write the wet to dry ratio on the bag/container.</p><p>It's versatile and great for those 'I must have chocolate naow' moments.</p><p>I just made up a half batch in cups... (2 cups sugar, 2 cups flour, 1 cup cocoa)</p><p>Just chuck in 6tbs of by mix, and the wets and add whatever extras as needed. =)</p>
<p>Thanks for the ratio info! I came here exclusively looking for ease related to &quot;bulking&quot; up my mix. And this was definitely my next question!</p>
<p>bugger... dry, not by.... dam auto correct.</p>
<p>I like to make a batch in a plastic container so I can make this very often without having to do the annoying stirring all the time and it's always stirred to perfection. To do this I measure in cups instead of tablespoons. My recipe is:</p><p>2 cups of flour<br>2 cups of sugar<br>1 cup of cacao<br>1 cup of melted butter<br>1 cup of water<br>a splash of vanilla extract<br>some salt</p><p>I tend to microwave it for about 1:20 but it really depends on how much batter you put in your mug.</p><p>Protip: Add the dry ingredients first and mix those before adding the liquids. To do this easily close the lid of the plastic container and shake instead of stirring, its a lot easier :)</p><p>Protip 2: Use a (semi-) clear container so you can locate any area's that haven't been mixed properly.</p>
<p>I like adding butter when I'm not watching my fat intake - as much. ;) <br>You save it with the wet ingredients already added? I guess this would be good if you're sure to eat it within a couple weeks, if stored in the fridge.</p>
I made it and it was NOT GOOD SORRY!!!!!!! It had NO sweetness at ALL!!
<p>I agree</p>
<p>Add a little stevia?</p>
<p>I made it with 1 1/2 tablespoons and it was plenty sweet....still too sweet to me, what it also was however was uninspired, very blah....i think i'll stick to chocolate mug cakes</p>
<p>it was okay </p>
<p>howlong are im supposed to microwave it??</p>
<p>Tastes amazing! Great recipe.</p>
<p>it was awesome thanks om nom nom </p>
Om nom nom!
Nice. Bit bitter with Bournville cocoa tho
<p>really good!! made 2 for me n my sister! </p>
<p>instead of cocoa powder u could use nesquick</p>
Just made 3 for me and the girls, amazing
<p>Turned out great! thank you</p>
I've tried this twice and it has come out a bit bitter both times, any tips? :/
If it's too bitter, try using either a bit more sugar or a bit less cacao
<p>I liked it! I made this with my Foods Teacher at my school, Churchill, and this is the exact same recipe. I love it when people who you don't know can make the same memory. (Dramatic much but whatever) &gt;w&lt;</p>
<p>NIce! I made it and it turned out great! I would recommend that before you heat it up you should put a good amount of penut butter in the centre of the mixture! it tastes amazing!</p>
<p>Omg yes.. that was amazing</p>
<p>What size mug works for this recipe?</p>
<p>It all depends really. As a rule of thumb though, I try to make sure no more than 1/2 to 2/is of the cup is full. That saying, I never add baking powder or soda to it. =)</p>
<p>So i just made this but it overflowed and was still wet and bubbly? Should i not have added baking powder or did i go wrong somehow?</p>
<p>baking powder is rising agent, so possibly not. Also, size of mug is a factor and how much liquid you added too. I find as long as the mixture looks like homemade playdoh in the mug your good to go. (If added nuts and such, it's going to look like it has lumps....)</p>
This recipe is great! My boyfriend has been bugging me to make him on since we first tried them a week ago. The other recipe wasnt that good but the brownie in this one was amazing. I even threw some chocolate chips on top towards the end of the cooking time. Delicious!!
<p>Made this last night - 1:15 was perfect! Delicious :D</p>
<p>I LOOoooOoooOooooOoOVVEEEEE BROWNIES IN A MUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 75/10!!!!!!!!!!!</p>
This saved my life.
<p>can you do it in a oven</p>
<p>I'm a chocolate lover and I approve this</p>
<p>This was really good! I guess I under-cook it a little so it's halfway between fudgy and batter-like. You can cook it for longer to have something fluffy and cake-like in texture, but remember that a microwave doesn't heat things evenly. </p><p>I see modifications on here, but they seem inconvenient(melting butter, more dishes to wash, pricier ingredients), which takes away from the appeal of a mug dessert a little bit, so here is my detailed method that has worked every time:<br>----<br>Add ingredients to mug in this order. </p><p>2 TBSP Water<br> - Microwave for 30 sec<br>1/2 to 1 TSP Instant coffee (Optional, but enhances flavor)<br>2 TBSP Vegetable oil<br>3 to 4 TBSP Sugar<br>Dash of salt<br>2 TBSP Cocoa powder<br>4 TBSP Flour<br> - Microwave for 1 min<br></p><p>Stir well after every addition with a fork. And for the cocoa and flour, stir after every tablespoon you add.<br>----<br>But I always cut the recipe in half because it's rich, and I'll microwave for 30 sec instead<br><br>Additions:<br>Chocolate chips<br>Walnut pieces<br>Nutella spread<br>Scoop of vanilla ice cream</p>
<p>This was yum. Simple &amp; gooey.</p><p>I did find this recipe a little sweet for my pallet, so in future I'm going to try reducing the sugar, or swapping it out for apple syrup (Appelstroop).</p>
<p>Just made this with my 10 yr old daughter. {Chocolate Attack} turned out awesome and so easy too. I used real butter instead of oil because I only had EVOO. One happy kiddo. Chocolate attack satisfied. </p>
<p>Hey guys I made this mug brownie recipe but it turned out like a spongy slimy mess, not sure why. </p><p>Here is how I tweaked it from using the comments and it turned out <strong>perfect</strong>, nice and flavorful with the best texture. These are all things you will find in your common household kitchen:</p><p>(Mix the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls, add the liquids to the dries and stir <strong>thoroughly </strong>with a wisk then pour into an evenly portioned mug. Cook for 50 seconds in the microwave, then in 10 second intervals until its not super gooey looking.)</p>Dry:<p>-4 tbs. all purpose flour<br>-3 tbs. cane sugar<br>-1 tbs. brown sugar<br>-1 tbs. cocoa powder <br>-1 tbs. hot cocoa mix<br>-small pinch of salt<br>-small pinch of baking powder</p>Wet: <p>-1/4 tsp. vanilla extract<br>-2 tbs. milk (I used 2%)<br>-2 tbs. hot melted butter</p>
I really wish I had found your comment a long time ago! So much better than the org. recipe! But try some instant coffee in there. Omg! Takes it to the next level...
<p>yours was amazing!!!!!!!!!</p>
Oh my god! I just made this but because I was desperate and out of cocoa so I used some double chocolate hot cocoa mix and cut the sugar a bit. I didn't realize that I used a half tablespoon instead of a full one so I had half as much but that's probably for the better lol.
<p>I found it on a different website, but it was pretty good... I also found it tasted like flour, until i realized that in my rush to eat, I forgot vanilla and salt. It is also much easier to whisk it, especially if you are making larger amounts.</p><p>Thanks for the great recipe! =)</p>
<p>I tried it, used the same ingredients, but added mini marshmallows, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and hershey's chocolate sauce. It. was. delicious.</p>
Just tried it and it's amazing! I probably should have waited and let it cool, though...
<p>yumm! it tastes really good but i do have to advise that you should read the whole thing first instead of just putting in everything at once like what i did since i dont have a flair in baking (microwaving for this) i put the wet and dry ingredients in at the same time and i put it in for 2 minutes oh my it was disgusting because the sides got so burnt that it felt like peanuts! i tried it again the next day and this time properly and wow it tastes so good and so different i advise putting chocolate syrup ontop if you are craving that choclatety taste :)</p>
