I was tempted to call this recipe One-Minute Microwave Brownie For One but if you have some restraint and self-control you can split it with someone and it becomes For Two.

I make it for my daughter and I when a craving for chocolate in the baked and gooey form comes over us and handfuls of chocolate chips or nibbles of chocolate bars from the pantry just won’t do.

There’s something about warm, molten chocolate that is just so satisfying and when you need your chocolate fix in this fashion and have no patience to wait, this is the recipe to make.

One-Minute Microwave Brownie - When chocolate cravings strike, make this EASY brownie recipe in one bowl, without a mixer, and it's ready in ONE MINUTE!! Rich, FUDGY, decadent, and accidentally vegan!! (no dairy, no butter, no eggs!)

It’s extremely easy, made in one small bowl without a mixer, and your brownie is ready in one minute, give or take, depending on your microwave’s strength.

I have a 2013 recipe for a Fudgy Chocolate Brownie Microwave Mugcake and while that recipe is great, there’s an egg involved. This new recipe is egg-free (and dairy-free) which makes it accidentally vegan. That’s great for those of us who like our brownies more along the lines of a raw and gooey rather than well cooked.

Not that I haven’t eaten my fair share of raw eggs in cake batter, brownie batter, and cookie dough and am still alive to tell wonderful tales all about those batters and doughs, but I digress.

There’s no baking powder or baking soda in this recipe which is great for a few reasons. The texture stays denser and more brownie-like rather than cakey.

And if you’ve ever ‘baked’ anything in the microwave you know that things have a tendency to rise and overflow with no warning. That’s less likely to happen with this recipe sans baking powder or soda.

The texture isn’t as densely chewy as typical baked brownies but ‘beggars can’t be choosers’ is what comes to mind with this recipe. It’s a brownie ready in one minute, it’s warm, decadent, and studded with chocolate chips throughout. Enough said.

One-Minute Microwave Brownie

One-Minute Microwave Brownie – When chocolate cravings strike, make this EASY brownie recipe in one bowl, without a mixer, and it’s ready in ONE MINUTE!! Rich, FUDGY, decadent, and accidentally vegan!! (no dairy, no butter, no eggs!)

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (most are inherently vegan, look for certified dairy-free if necessary)
  • ice cream or whipped topping, optional for serving

Directions:

  1. To a small microwave-safe bowl, add the granulated sugar, cocoa, water, oil, brown sugar, vanilla, salt, and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the flour and stir until just combined, don’t overmix.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  4. Cook on high power in the microwave for about 1 minute, or until the brownie is as set in the center as desired. All microwaves, bowls, ingredients, and preferences for doneness vary, so you will need to experiment with how long it takes to cook given your variables. I recommend stopping to check at the 45-second mark and going from there in 15-second bursts as necessary.
  5. Optionally add ice cream or whipped topping and serve immediately. Brownie is best warm and fresh.

  1. This looks fudgy and delicious! I have tried other microwave mug cakes with egg and baking powder but sometimes they came out a little “spongy”. It’s good to know the egg isn’t necessary when a craving hits!

  2. Just found your site and am already loving it

  3. Oooh I love small-scale recipe like this, and the fact that it’s only 1 minute? I’m 120% sold!

  4. Love the pictures. The ice cream oozing into the brownie … sigh.

  5. I need to make this for my husband. He is a chocoholic for sure. He would make this a ‘for one’ dessert. HA!

  6. Averie The One Minute Microwave Brownie Looks like fun in a Mug Thank you for the cute idea .
