Double Chocolate Brownie in a Mug Recipe
What could be better than an easy mug cake recipe? Only one thing: an easy mug cake that tastes as delicious as this brownie in a mug!
- 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder unsweetened or special dark
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 6 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 egg
- 4 Tbsp. flour
- ¼ tsp. baking powder
- 2 Tbsp. white chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp. milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
- vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream to serve
- powdered sugar to serve
In a coffee mug or other large mug, mix 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil and 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder until you have a thick, chocolatey liquid.
Add in ¼ tsp. salt and 6 Tbsp. sugar and thoroughly mix through until smooth.
Using a fork, thoroughly mix in 1 egg.
Carefully stir in 4 Tbsp. flour and ¼ tsp. baking powder. Thoroughly mix together.
Fold in 2 Tbsp. white chocolate chips and 2 Tbsp. milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
Microwave for 1 minute. The brownie in a mug will rise, then sink a little bit, and should still be wet to the touch.

- Combine with a fork: Use a fork to combine all your mug cake ingredients. It will mix better this way.
- Add a little flour to the chocolate chips: Mix the chocolate chips together, then sprinkle in a small amount of flour and toss together before adding to the mug. This keeps the chips from sinking to the bottom.
- Cook time based on microwave: Cook time for your microwave brownie recipe depends on the power of your microwave. The cook time here is for an 800W microwave. If you have a 700W microwave, for example, add an extra 40 seconds of cook time.
- Use a big mug: Use a big enough mug for your brownie in a cup! If you use too small of a mug, there’s a chance of the brownie mug mix overflowing. Don’t use a small mug.
