Mug brownies usually turn out pretty yummy!
I am so excited to make these as soon as no junk food january is up.
My girls have been making this for years! One of the first things they learned to “cook” alone. This is exactly the recipe we use…except they’ve taken it up a notch with additions like chocolate chips or mint chips or cut Reese cups, etc. Great for after school on a cold day with a little chocolate syrup on hand.
That looks nasty. But you know I’ll probably try it if it’s chocolate.
“What are you doing so much chocolates?”
I tried this before, and it’s OK but needs to be gooier. Gooeyer. Gooeyerrerr. Um, more gooey.
I’ve tried it too. Pretty bland and chewy. And the inside of the microwave gets really, really wet.
I’m just marveling at that clean microwave!
Abraham, you’re the blogger. Aren’t you supposed to try it and let us know how it goes? :)
That takes too long…even if it’s 3 minutes. :)
Looks more like cake than brownies to me. Needs to be denser, gooier, fudgier. Does that make me a brownie snob?
Try 2 eggs.
Dare I ask, how long before some kid comes up with the 4 minute 20 second brownie?
This looks gross. I don’t know what’s coming out of that cup, but it is NOT a brownie. Sorry.
I think looking at the photos and ingredients just gave me a heart attack. I’d try it just to watch the dough rise. And then I’ll have someone eat it for me.
Oh my gosh, that looks like tons of fun! I’m trying it TONIGHT.
Just tried it. It’s like a chocolate sponge, but a scoop of ice cream can remedy that!
You need some real chocolate in there to make it less floury and more gooey. This is an area university students are experienced in.
For the amount of cleanup involved (cake flour expands on clean kitchen counters when the target is coffee mug sized), it’s avery chewy brownie. Cute idea, but brownie mixes are better (and at the end of it all, not THAT much longer).
trying w bacon…
Mom and kids made a couple mugs ‘o 3min brownie this afternoon and convinced me that I should should make a mug myself. I did and it’s no brownie. At best it’s 3 minute nuked weak chocolate cake. That is what you should change the name of the post to. “Weak Cup of Nuked Chocolate Cake in 3 Minutes”.
I feel that I wasted some perfectly good chocolate in the making, but not so much that I am bitter. The kids had fun watching it “GROW”, so not an entire loss, just not a candidate for a repeat.
I used regular flour instead of cake flour – a mistake. It was rubbery at the bottom, kind of gross.
I’ve made this with my children (http://www.justhisbest.com/2009/08/mug-cake.html) and they loved it. Put it with some vanilla ice cream and you can’t go wrong!
I did this last night (with a slightly different recipe), and it actually is FUCKING AMAZING. No lie, it’s awesome. Just make sure that you have a rag/sponge to clean up afterwards…
get a big big mug for zero mess, after it cools a little, tap the sides of the cup upside down and it drops out nicely. Would have been great with some choc chips, or some chocolate spread melted on top for a bit of sauce or both! :)
