The “I have’n got enough time to make a dessert” kind of recipe. This brownie is cooked in the microwave in just 1 minute and 40 seconds and it is as good as the proper version 😉


  • 30g Flour
  • 50g Sugar
  • 15g Cocoa
  • Pinch of salt
  • Tiny pinch of cinnamon
  • 60 ml Water
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1/8 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Scoop of ice cream/ 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream to serve
  • Fresh strawberries to decorate


  1. Add the dry ingredients to a microwave safe mug and stir with a fork, breaking up any  clumps.
  2. Add the wet ingredients and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Zap in microwave: Place in microwave and heat on high until the mixture is cooked through, about 1 minute and 40 seconds for a 1000 watt microwave or 1 minute and 10 seconds on a 1650 Watt microwave. If you don’t know the power level on your microwave, start with 60 seconds and increase until the brownie is done. It should be moist when cooked through.
  4. Top with ice cream: let cool for a minute and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or two teaspoons of whipping cream poured over.
  5. Decorate with fresh strawberries and enjoy!
