Chocolate Attack: Fudgy Mug Brownie

I had a chocolate attack after dinner tonight.  Not having any chocolate in the house I went digging in the back of the cupboard and discovered I had all the ingredients for a mug brownie.  Now, I have tried the 3 minutes mug brownie recipe before and wasn't so thrilled with it. It was sort of gelatinous and not very chocolatey.  So I did a little google search and came up with a

4 Tablespoons Flour
4 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cocoa powder (Note: don't use cocoa mix or quik, it shouldn't have any sugar)
2 Tablepsoons Vegetable Oil (Don't use one with a strong flavor, eg olive, sesame, etc)
2 Tablespoons Water
Dash of salt
Add the sugar, flour, cocoa, and salt to the mug and mix. Then add the oil and water and mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Be sure to be thorough, there's a tendency for clumps of the dry ingredients to form. Microwave for 1 minute. Enjoy! 


  1. This is a pretty simple recipe (though not as simple as yours!) that I love to make when I need a chocolate fix!

  2. Sounds delicious Linda! I'll have to try it sometime!
