so I used this recipe tonight and it legit tastes like a fucking brownie from the oven.
The batter wasn’t soupy like the picture…if you follow it, it’s incredibly thick, so i added a couple more tablespoons of water and oil (I used olive oil because it’s pretty close to canola and we don’t have that and it’s in the picture so hate on it), tasted it and added a little more sugar and threw in white chocolate chips. the batter was typical of what you’d find from a box mix, so use that as a guide. taste it as you go…there’s no eggs so i don’t want to hear salmonella bullshit, you know what brownie batter tastes like so go for it. 1m30s in the microwave and holy fuck wow.
Imagine a scenario where Deadpool fights off these guys who invaded his apartment then all the sudden there’s a dinging sound from the kitchen and Deadpool excuses himself and comes back out with a mug brownie and proceeds to eat it. Confused and hungry, the invaders run off
Between needing them to be gluten-free and not having much kitchen stuff at the moment, here’s what I’m doing:
step 1: get a brownie mix! one that works with your dietary restrictions, obv.
step 2: In a LARGE mug, mix together:
- 2 tablespoons light oil (NOT olive oil. & if you’re using butter or margarine, put it in the mug first and melt it before adding the rest!) - 4-5 tablespoons brownie mix - 2 tablespoons water (or milk, or milk substitute) - 1 egg (if you’re leaving this off, add a bit more oil and expect fudgy brownies)
- optionally, a pinch of flavoring (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cayenne, ginger? NOT ALL TOGETHER THOUGH) -also optionally, extra choclit chips or nuts etc
step 3: when it’s thoroughly mixed, stick in the microwave for… well 4 minutes for me. You’ll have to figure the timing out based on yr microwave and how done you want it.
2TS of melted butter 2TS of milk 2TS of cocoa powder (unsweetened) 4TS of white/castor sugar 4TS of flour A dash of salt A bit of vanilla or caramel essence (I always choose caramel cause I personally don’t enjoy vanilla a lot)
Mix well in a mug. Put it 60 seconds in your microwave, and enjoy!
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
You may want to add a little milk, or increase one of the liquids, it should look tasty as it goes into the microwave! Gooey is best.
Mix all the dry ingredients (I mix in a bowl first, it’s easier), mix in the oil and water (and milk if wanted)
Whack in the microwave for 1 minute (Depends on how hot your microwave is)
there’s nothing worse than making a terrible mug cookie recipe and having to either stubbornly suffer through the watery burned chocolate or to give up and admit not all mug things are heaven sent as u cry, stroking ur scalded tongue and pouring your sad abomination down the sink

This was floating around the internet before, and I don’t actually remember the ratio, but basically mix (I use my hand cause it’s fun and then I have fewer dishes) greek yogurt (avoid flavored unless you’re feeling experimental) and flour in a sort of 1:1 ratio and then add more of whichever you don’t have enough of to make it dough-y!
2. Mug Brownie:
Mix 4 tbs flour, 4 tbs sugar, 2 tbs cocoa powder, 2 tbs oil (olive may be too strongly flavored, i dunno, I’ve been using avocado oil), and 2 tbs water. In a mug. Then microwave for 40 seconds (ish, that’s what works for my microwave to make basically hot fudge, which is my preferred consistency).
Since basically all of you who follow me are college students/grad students/living-on-your-own-non-students, I thought you may benefit from these. Yes, they both float around the internet a lot (sorry, I didn’t save the sources for either of these), but they float with a bajillion other things that I bookmark and say “Yeah! I’ll totally make that!” and haven’t looked at in a year. But these ones I actually make! All the time!
By the way, if anyone has an easy vegan pizza dough recipe, that would be even cooler. I just like that I just have to buy one thing at the grocery store (cause I always have flour on hand) when I want pizza.
*gets notification that Alex posted brownie recipe* *immediately goes in kitchen and makes it* probably the best pro ana mug cake/brownie recipe I found actually (I put more sugar in and it's perfect :p)
lmao people actually get notifications for my posts xD im so sorry
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you’ll know I occasionally do the whole brownie in a mug thing. It’s fast. It’s cheap. It’s chocolatey. It’s perf for when I’m on my period and I just like *need* a brownie. Anyway, I just made one and totally fucked up the ingredients and it was like the best one I’ve ever made so I’m gonna share it.
3 tbs butter
4 tsp water
1-4 drops vanilla extract
4 tsp cocoa
8 tsp sugar
8 tsp flour
Marshmallows if you’re feelin fancy
Melt the butter in whatever mug you wanna eat your brownie out of. Swish in the water and however much vanilla you want (I personally do like 4 drops). In a separate little cup or something mix together all the dry ingredients, then dump the dry mixture into the mug and mix *just* until there are no big honkin’ dry clumps. Don’t over mix. Microwave for like 60-90 seconds and that’s that! If you wanna do the marshmallow thing, cut em in half and put the cut side down on that lava-hot brownie. Microwave another 15 seconds, then let cool for as long as you can stand to cause it’s gonna be seriously molten for a while. AND ENJOY!
