Recipe: Emergency Microwave Mug Brownie

SOS: Sweet tooth emergency. Make this quick microwave mug recipe in just a minute!

Tough day? Period pains? Bleary Mancunian rain getting you down? Comfort your sorrows and your sweet tooth with this easy microwave mug recipe, ready in just one hot minute.

You will need:

5 tbsp Nutella (or equivalent)
1 egg
2 tbsp all purpose Flour


1. Put the Nutella in your mug and microwave on a medium setting for 15 seconds so it’s a little bit runny.

2. Add the egg and whisk the two together.

3. Add the flour a little at the time and mix until you have a smooth and even batter.

4. Microwave on high for around 45 seconds — voila!

Your brownie should be doughy on top with a gooey centre. Serve while it’s still warm, but don’t burn your tongue on the molten core! This recipe is made especially good when you drizzle on a little cream and add strawberries. For a festive vibe — try adding a little nutmeg with your flour. Bon appetit!
