5-Minute Brownie Mug

Easy (142)      Chocolate (86)      Brownie (7)     
A brownie with a difference, the 5-minute brownie mug is the ideal treat when you need a quick and easy chocolate brownie hit! Also great for those last-minute friend visits after school or on the weekends to feed a hungry crew when there are no other snacks available! Just whiz some of these up in the microwave and you're ready to go!



Preparation Time: 3 minutes
Cooking Time: 1-2 minutes
Makes: 1 servings

Ingredients

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar (white or brown)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
A pinch of salt
A pinch of ground cinnamon
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons of canola or vegetable oil (rather than extra virgin olive oil because the olive oil taste is too strong)
2 drops of vanilla essence

Method

Lightly grease a ceramic, microwave safe mug with butter or canola spray.

Into the mug, place the flour and sugar and mix well to combine. Press out any lumps against the side of the mug with a spoon until you get a completely combined sugar and flour powder.





Add the cocoa powder and mix to combine. Again, press out any lumps so that you have a smooth powder mixture.



Stir through the salt and cinnamon for an extra bit of flavour.



Pour the water into the mug and mix with a spoon. A teaspoon works best to mix with because it fits well into the mug while still being able to move around freely. Mix the water through to form a smooth chocolate mixture.





Pour the oil and vanilla essence into the mug and mix to combine. Continue stirring and pressing out any lumps against the mug wall until you create an even chocolate mixture.



Place the chocolate filled mug in a microwave, then cook on high for 1-2 minutes. Times may vary depending on the microwave, so to start out cook the brownie mug for 1 minute. After the first minute, take the brownie mug from the microwave and test with a skewer to see if the brownie is cooked through. If not, return it to the microwave for another 30 seconds, and repeat (with 30 second blasts) until the brownie is cooked through.

Note, the brownie mixture will continue to cook within itself on standing, so if it is not completely cooked through and still has a little bit of a runny centre, leave it to stand for 2 minutes before you decide whether to microwave it again.

Also, be careful! When the brownie mug first comes out of the microwave, the brownie itself is extremely hot! I suggest either tipping the brownie out of the cup onto a plate after standing, or using a teaspoon to slice into the brownie whilst still in the cup. This will allow extra steam to leave the cup so that the brownie will cool down faster. Also, avoid looking into the cup with your face directly over the mug so that you avoid any hot steam that may rise from the mug.

When giving the brownie mug to kids, please make sure to test the brownie beforehand to check that it is cool enough to eat safely!
