I made a single serving Nutella brownie. It’s only 3 ingredients. And it’s outrageously good. It tastes just like the ultra chewy and fudgy box mix brownies.
All you need to do is mix the ingredients, pop it in the microwave for one minute and it’s ready.
It’s not the prettiest sight, but it’s so delicious. The edges are super chewy, just like the edge pieces on regular brownies.
I didn’t actually cook it in a ramekin. I cooked it in an oversized mug but then it’s really hard to see the brownie after it’s done, so I pulled it out and it fit nicely in a ramekin.
I did actually experiment with making one in the oven so that it would come out prettier (above photo). Unfortunately, it took a really, really long time to cook. After 25 minutes, I just lost patience and took it out. It had a very gooey center, but it wasn’t as chewy. I think it probably can work in the oven, but I probably needed to split the batter so that it’s a thinner layer.

Update: If you enjoy this recipe, I just finished writing an entire book on mug cakes, featuring nearly 100 recipes including this one and many new ones.
