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.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Microwave on high until top looks dry, about 1 minute.

Cook's Note:

Using less vegetable oil results in a slightly cakier texture.

Partner Tip

This brownie definitely exploded in my microwave. But as a plus it did still taste reallyyy good. I'm not sure what went wrong but I think I'll try again with a bigger mug or adding a lid. Read More

This is a delicious snack. You can make variations of it by changing what kind of sugar you use! For example I tried powdered sugar and came up with a crunchy brownie. Read More

It was very easy and quick. I didn't have instant coffee so I used 2 tablespoons of strong black coffee instead of water. It tasted very good and had a cake like texture. All I was missing was a big scoop of coffee flavored ice cream and some Hershey's syrup (next time). I will make this again it hit the spot. Update - Second time I used 2 tablespoons of caramel flavored (strong) black coffee. It was excellent the flavors complimented each other. Read More
