The 1 minute mug brownie

Our food stylist Jono Fleming describes this amazing little dish as a 'food hug'. We were a little sceptical until he demonstrated it in the T&W studio, and now we're true believers. Assuming you've got all the ingredients in your pantry, you can have a warm, fudgy brownie in your hands within three minutes. True story. Your kids won't believe their luck - add ice cream and it's a weeknight dessert to be proud of. Adults might enjoy the chilli kick of cayenne pepper - let us know what else you add for your personal perfect treat.


2 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp water
¼ tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp caster sugar
4 tbsp plain flour
a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
a pinch of ground cinnamon (optional)


In a mug, mix the melted butter, water and vanilla extract until combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until the mixture is smooth.

Put in the microwave and cook for 1 minute. Remove (be careful, the mug will be hot!)

Top with a dollop of ice cream and enjoy!
