» For making Brownie in a Mug

  1. In a microwave-safe mug, add flour, cocoa, sugar, vanilla, salt, baking powder, oil, and milk.
  2. Whisk briskly until you get a smooth lump-free batter.
  3. Add in the 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, and 1 tablespoon chocolate chips.
  4. Mix again until everything is combined. Clean the edge of the cup.
  5. Sprinkle with some chocolate chips/chunks. Using a paper napkin, clean the inner edge of the cup.
  6. Cook in a microwave for about 2 minutes at full power. (My microwave is 1000 watts. So you may need to adjust the time. Start with 1 minute 20 seconds, and then an additional 20-30 seconds or until it gets cooked.)
  7. At this point, the top of the brownie is cooked perfectly and is no longer wet. Remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before eating.
  8. Top with toppings like chopped walnuts, whipped cream, berries, and chocolate sauce. Enjoy it warm.


  1. This brownie cooking time may vary in different microwaves. So you may need to adjust the cooking time. Initially start with 1 minute 20 seconds, and then an additional 20-30 seconds or until it gets cooked. My 1000 watt microwave cooked this in 2 minutes.
  2. Cooking time in mug cakes also varies depending upon the width and depth of the mug.
  3. Let the brownie rest for a while before serving and adding toppings. If you eat brownies straight from the microwave, it would be too hot and it would melt the ice cream or whipped cream toppings quickly.
  4. You can have it without toppings. I like to serve mine with some whipped cream topping.
