    3 people made this

    Serves: 1 

    • 2 tablespoons plain flour
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/8 teaspoon instant coffee (optional)
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 2 tablespoons water, or as needed
    • 2 drops vanilla extract

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:1min  ›  Ready in:6min 

    1. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, instant coffee and salt in a microwave-safe mug or small bowl. Mix in vegetable oil, water and vanilla extract until mixture is smooth and glossy. Add more water, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, if mixture looks a little dry.
    2. Microwave on high until top looks dry, about 1 minute.


    Using less vegetable oil results in a slightly cakier texture.

    When I first made it, it came out stodgy. When I made it again using self-raising flour, it tasted a lot better.  -  28 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This brownie definitely exploded in my microwave. But as a plus it did still taste reallyyy good. I'm not sure what went wrong but I think I'll try again with a bigger mug or adding a lid.  -  18 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It was very easy and quick. I didn't have instant coffee so I used 2 tablespoons of strong black coffee instead of water. It tasted very good and had a cake like texture. All I was missing was a big scoop of coffee flavored ice cream and some Hershey's syrup (next time). I will make this again, it hit the spot. Update - Second time I used 2 tablespoons of caramel flavored (strong) black coffee. It was excellent, the flavors complimented each other.  -  28 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
