How to make Instant Mug Brownie in Microwave?
I have made this instant mug brownie multiple times. It’s actually easy to put everything in the mug and throw it in the microwave. But since I wanted to click some good looking photos I decided to mix everything separately and bake it in a tea cup instead of a mug. I find tea cups cute than a mug! But that’s just me, you can very well make it in a mug.
In a microwave safe bowl melt butter for 30 seconds. Add milk, vanilla essence, flour, cocoa powder, castor sugar (or powdered sugar) and whisk them well with a spoon. Mix well till everything is incorporated and there are no lumps. Here you can add your favorite nuts or chocolate chips. I have added walnuts because a fudgy brownie without walnuts is incomplete in my dictionary!
Grease Microwave safe tea cup (or mug if you want) with butter. Spoon the batter in it and tap the cup on your work top a few times so that the batter settles down well in a level.
How long to bake the Instant Mug Brownie in Microwave?
Every microwave is different. Some go up to 800W some even lower. You need to adjust the time depending on the highest temperature capacity of your microwave. Mine goes upto 950W and I baked the brownie for 1 min and 10 secs. If your microwave goes up to 800W or 850W bake it for 2 minutes.
This is a fudgy brownie and it will be sift and moist. If you keep it in the microwave for too long – i.e. more than 2 minutes or so it can turn hard.
How to serve the Instant Mug Brownie?
You can eat the brownie straight away. Or you can have it with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. My son was a little impatient at this time and brought his blue spoon to me while I was clicking the photos – so I thought why not include it in the photo as a prop!
