Brownie Mug Cake Tips

  • Use a large mug (at least 14 ounces) so the contents do not spill over during the mixing and baking process.
  • You can use water or milk for the liquid in this recipe. The milk adds slightly more flavor, but either works great.
  • Cook time is calculated for a standard 1200 watt microwave. Cook time may vary depending on wattage. We suggest cooking it for 60 seconds, then check for doneness before cooking for another 30 seconds.
  • Let the brownie cool in the microwave for 5 minutes before eating. The mug will be hot!
  • Add peanut butter. You can add a scoop of peanut butter to the mug with the mixture, stir once and cook. This creates a gooey peanut butter filling.
  • If you want to save some or all of the mug brownie for later, cover and store at room temperature. You can reheat for 10 to 15 seconds before consuming.
