Join us this week as we make Brownies in a Mug and Tie-dye!

Here are two different recipes to make a brownie in a mug from scratch! (Of course you can always buy the pre-mixed boxes)

Brownie in a Mug - from SimplyRecipes

Some mugs don't microwave well because there is metal in their ceramic glaze. They'll work but they may get very hot. Best to use a plain old everyday un-fancy mug. A regular 12 to 16 ounce mug will do fine.

  • Prep time: 3 minutes

  • Cook time: 2 minutes

  • Yield: Makes one serving


  • 1/4 cup flour (30 g)

  • 1/4 cup sugar (50 g)

  • 2 tablespoons (13 g) cocoa (natural, unsweetened)

  • Pinch of salt

  • Tiny pinch of cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup water (60 ml)

  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) melted butter, or neutral oil

  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 small scoop of ice cream or 1 or 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream to serve


1. Add the dry ingredients to the mug and stir: Place flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, and cinnamon in a microwave safe ceramic mug. Stir with a fork or spoon to mix well and break up any clumps.

2. Add the wet ingredients and stir: Add the butter or oil, water, and vanilla to the cup and stir until the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps.

3. Zap in microwave: Place in microwave and heat on high until the mixture is cooked through, about a 1 minute and 40 seconds for a 1000 watt microwave, or 1 minute 10 seconds on a 1650 watt microwave.
