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.

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.

This seemed promising at first. I made it for me and my mom, and the brownie did not set anywhere below the very top. Also, this is way too rich for my taste. Either too much cocoa or lack of milk or maybe even not enough sugar. 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

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
