Chocolate Mocha Mug Brownie

On some nights, our neighbour Pia drops by to visit the kids, the dog (and us) when her brothers go to Air Cadets League of Canada. Just before Remembrance day, Pia dropped by and was looking for some instant coffee, and she was carrying a mug filled with some batter and a recipe on a piece of paper.

It was time to make a brownie.

I'd seen several cake, and brownie in a mug recipes here and there, but never got around to actually trying one. And this one is a mocha brownie, so even better!

Chocolate Mocha Mug Brownie

2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp water
3-4 drops vanilla extract

  1. In an 8 oz mug, stir together oil, water, vanilla, salt and coffee.
  2. Add sugar, cocoa powder and flour, stir, and microwave on high for one minute.
  3. Let cool for at least one minute before eating.

  1. I love making cake in a mug. It's fast, delicious and there are no leftovers. I love the brownie idea. The recipe looks so good!

  2. I've never tried to make a brownie in the mug! Great idea, sounds so easy! I love coffee flavored brownies!

  3. Brownies for one!?! This sounds great. The perfect sweet bite for those of us with no self-control.

  4. What an interesting recipe! I've come across a few microwave cake recipes recently but haven't tried one yet. I love brownies so maybe this is the one to make!

  5. I found your site on and thought I'd stop by and check it out. Just subscribed to your feed and can't wait to see what your next post will be!
