Individual Microwave Brownie

Rated as 4.08 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great quick fix for a chocolate craving! Because it's microwaved it is different than traditional brownie and has a very moist, pudding-like texture. Enjoy with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, instant coffee, and salt in a microwave-safe mug or small bowl. Mix in vegetable oil, water, and vanilla extract until mixture is smooth and glossy. Add more water, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, if mixture looks a little dry.
  2. Microwave on high until top looks dry, about 1 minute.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Using less vegetable oil results in a slightly cakier texture.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
