Cooking with Kaylie: Mocha Brownie in a Mug

Mocha Brownie in a MugYou’ve probably all heard of the ‘cake in a mug’ trend going around. And, if you haven’t, you should really get in on this action.

Naturally, when I saw a brownie in a mug recipe, my brain replaced the word ‘water’ with ‘espresso’ and I was instantly in love! So, without further ado, I bring to you a gooey, chocolatey, espresso brownie in a mug!



  • Stir the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and salt into the mug.
  • Add the oil and water to the dry ingredients.
  • Mix thoroughly, being sure to eliminate any lumps of dry ingredients.
  • Microwave for 1-1.5 minutes, until the brownie is only slightly moist in the center.
  • Let sit for a few minutes before eating, as it will be very hot.

That’s right, my friends. You just made a mocha brownie and only dirtied one dish (unless you count a spoon as a dish but, let’s be honest, spoons are so small that they shouldn’t count!). You’re welcome!
