3 Ingredient Single Serving Nutella Brownie

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.

  1. Espectacular!!! me encantó, gracias por compartir la receta.

  2. Mine came out very dry. Any ideas why?

    • did you add the full amount of Nutella? 1/4 cup + an additional 1 tbsp. If so it shouldn’t be dry at all. it should be extremely fudgy and moist

  3. Yum yum yum!

  4. Delicioso!!!

  5. I tried this recipe out it didn’t really turn out like a “brownie texture” it was more like cake,and man was I really hoping it turned out like a brownie. I’m not quite sure what I did wrong but,yeah.

    • It should definitely come out ultra brownie texture. super chewy and fudgy and not cakey at all. did you do anything different? and did you make sure to add all the Nutella stated in the recipe because the Nutella is the key

  6. Hey there! 
    is the amount of time fixed or does it depend on the microwave?

  7. I tried this today while my parents were out. Worked like a charm, although I forgot the extra Tbsp of Nutella, so I got a more cakey texture. 

    • that extra 1 tbsp of Nutella really makes a difference for the fudgy, chewy texture, so definitely try that out next time! glad it worked out for you though!

  8. I really love the recipe, i have a dinner party next weekend i want to put this idea on my menu.. : )
    Many Thanks for a superb idea

  9. 1/4 cup is equals to 4 tablespoons. And according to the ingredients list, plush 1 table spoon. So you mean, 5 tablespoons in total?
