1 serving


  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Whisk together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and salt in a microwave-safe mug.

  2. Add milk, melted butter, and vanilla and mix well with a spatula, making sure the dry ingredients at the bottom get incorporated.

  3. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Brownie will still be moist in the middle. If brownie appears too fudgy, microwave for another 30 seconds until desired consistency is reached. Do not microwave for more than 2 minutes total. The longer you cook it, the more cake-like the brownie becomes.

  4. Cool for 5 minutes before eating, if you can wait that long!

Cook's Note:

You can use oil instead of butter, and water instead of milk. Feel free to add chocolate chips or other additions to the batter. Fold in additions right before baking.
