How to Make a Single Brownie in One Minute!

Okay, this is a cool and very dangerous little recipe. Just warning you! This recipe makes a single, homemade brownie in a microwaveable mug or custard dish and is so easy that anyone can make these tasty treats.
1 minute brownie with Butter Pecan Ice cream

One-Minute Brownie

Ingredients:
1 T. all purpose flour
1 T. brown sugar
1 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1 T. oil
1 T. water
3-4 drops vanilla extract
Directions:
In a microwave-proof mug or small custard cup mix the ingredients together until smooth. Stirring the dry ingredients together first will give the best result.
1 minute brownie only takes a few ingredients and 30 seconds in the microwave. A few ingredients and 30 seconds in the microwave will produce a 1 minute brownie
Microwave for approximately 30 seconds. Every microwave is different, so you may need to tweak the time just a little. In my microwave, this brownie takes 34-35 seconds to be just perfect.

Top with ice cream or sorbet as soon as the microwave goes, DING! and eat with a spoon. (One of my guys doesn’t eat dairy at all, so the raspberry sorbet was the perfect addition for him.)

Some notes:
  • I experimented a bit and found that using Hershey’s Special Dark unsweetened cocoa was the very best. Of course, I love dark, dark chocolate best; if you’re more of a milk-chocolate fan, use a lighter cocoa.
  • You can use whatever type of oil you have on hand. I tried these with vegetable oil as well as with a really light olive oil. both worked just fine.
  • You can also use white sugar instead of brown sugar. The texture will be a little bit different but they are equally delicious.
  • It’s easy to get too much vanilla in these brownies because you’re making such a small quantity. Not only will too much vanilla affect taste, it will affect how the batter microwaves up…and not in a positive way.
  • If you want, you can spray the mug or custard dish with non-stick spray, but since you’re eating this brownie right away, it doesn’t really matter.
  • It should be noted that there are no eggs or dairy products in this brownie.
This single brownie recipe won’t help you if you have a crowd coming over (for that, I much prefer this recipe for my Best Brownies). This single brownie IS the perfect solution for an intense chocolate craving or sweet-tooth moment, no matter what time of day or night. It’s helpful, in those situations, not to have an entire pan of brownies trying to trick you into eating them. It’s also an inexpensive fix for that moment of craving chocolate!!!

I won’t stop making entire pans of brownies because I really do like to share. Still, this is a very handy recipe to have on file!

  1. I DON’T need to know this! Is it appropriate that what follows the recipe is an ad to lose 15 lbs in 4 weeks? I am afraid I will be trying this recipe (over and over, probably!).

    • Well, I have no control over those ads….

      And I’m thinking that you’ll need to make the recipe multiple times to perfect it. I mean, you wouldn’t want to make brownies you don’t really like. So try again. They’re just a single brownie. Nothing to get excited about.
