2 mins Eggless Instant MW Brownie/Cake...Quick Fix for Chocoholics!!

Print Friendly and PDF
Frankly, I am not a chocoholic but I love to eat chocolates occasionally and enjoy small portions of chocolate based desserts thoroughly.I am sure most of us sometimes get sudden cravings for a dessert especially the chocolate based ones and that too at odd times during the day. Another reason behind these sudden cravings especially for me is blogging. When ever I see some cakes/brownies recipes from our fellow bloggers, I feel like making them immediately.

I have tried a couple of instant microwave versions but was not really impressed with them.Recently, when I was searching again for a different recipe I ended up seeing this recipe in Suma's space and really wanted to give a try immediately.The best part of the recipe is that it is instant and just needs a bowl and whisk so its not messy at all and everything can be finished in a matter of 5 mins. Call it by whatever name you want -cake or brownie- it's easy to prepare and is yummilicious enough to satisfy your craving for a chocolate dessert even in the middle of the night. Just give it a try am sure you will love this recipe. The entire preparation is done in a mug and hence you can call it a 'Mug cake' but today I poured into two ramekins to get two portions.

Ingredients:
(recipe source : Art of Dessert)

2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
4 tbsp icing sugar(or powdered sugar)
2 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp dark chocolate pieces(or semi sweet chocolate chips)
2 tbsp chopped walnuts
1/4 tsp vanilla essence

Method:
  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl and let it cool.Add milk and vanilla essence and whisk well.I used salted butter in it,so I did not add salt.If you are using unsalted butter add a pinch of salt to the batter.
  • In another bowl mix flour,icing sugar,cocoa powder until everything is mixed really well.
  • Now add this dry ingredients to the wet ingredients mixture in the microwave safe bowl and fold in the mixture properly.
  • Add dark chocolate pieces and walnuts to it and mix well.
  • Microwave it on HIGH for 1 minute and 30 seconds.Let it stand for a couple of minutes(approx 2mins).(I have poured this into two ramekins and microwaved for the same time)
Now remove it from microwave oven and just dig in when it is still warm or you can even serve it with vanilla ice cream and some chocolate sauce on it or even with freshly whipped cream.

Note:
  • Be precise to the measurements to get good results.
  • Check the brownie after 1 1/2 mins,if the surface is soft and dry to touch then it is done,no need to further microwave it.Do not microwave it for longer period,otherwise the brownie will become very hard.
  • I have poured the mixture into two ramekins,you can do it in a single micro safe mug or cup.
  • It is cooked in the microwave in microwave mode,not the convention mode.My microwave oven is of 1100 watts power.
  • Pour the batter upto half of the ramekin or mug height.
  • I used salted butter in it,so I did not add salt.If you are using unsalted butter add a pinch of salt to the batter.
When I started writing this post I knew that it was Suma's birthday today,so thought of wishing her through this post.But when I was about to publish this post I got to know that it is Rak's birthday tomorrow through sharmi's post,so I could not stop wishing her as well as she is a very good friend of mine too.So dear buddies Suma and Raji, I wish you " Many Many Happy Returns of the day" through this sweet post,I hope you gals like it.

Thanks in advance..

Nupur Parmar said...

HI,
i tried brownie today, i didnt add choco chips or walnuts in it... only problem i faced is my brownie got hard.. any tips please

Prathibha said...

@Nupur...Addition of choc chips n walnuts is optional...ur brownie might hv bcum hard bcoz you would have kept for more time..reduce the time next time....and by the way did u use mw for brownie or wat?

nidhi sheth said...
