One Minute Brownie Mug Cake
Yes, that’s right. I created a brownie mug cake that takes only one minute to make in the microwave. I have to confess, I’m pretty thrilled. This is my favorite mug cake creation yet. And it is still super easy to make.
It’s super chocolatey like a brownie should be. This is more like the cake-type brownies rather than the chewy brownies, but it’s still so good. When it first came out of the oven, the brownie was quite fluffy, like a really good chocolate cake. After a minute or so, the batter turns denser, much more like a brownie because of the minimal amount of flour.
I made two, offered one to the FH. At first he refused. He’s gotten kind of sick of my mug cake creations. I insisted he take a bite and he didn’t regret it. He loved it and kept the brownie for himself.
Because brownies are denser, these don’t rise nearly as much and you don’t need an oversized mug unless you want to double the quantity. A regular mug will do.
There’s one extra step required to create these cakes, but it’s still super easy and clean up is still minimal.
- 2 oz semisweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 egg
- 4 tbsp sugar

Select two microwave-safe mugs. In each mug place one tbsp of butter and 1 oz of semisweet chocolate. Microwave each mug for 40 seconds (microwave them separately). Remove and stir until chocolate is completely melted with a small fork.
Add 2 tbsp sugar to each mug and stir. Beat egg in a small bowl, add half to each mug and mix. Add in 1 tbsp flour to each cup and mix until smooth.
Cook each brownie for 1 minute in the microwave (do each separately). Serve while warm.
