Good Mug Brownie Recipe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Being a college student, I don't always want to bake a full batch of brownies when i want some chocolate, so I usually just head for my microwave and whip up a mug brownie. Since I've been gluten free, I've tried a couple different recipes I used to use, just with gluten-free flour instead. I tried the same recipes each twice, once with King Arthur gluten-free flour and once with Cup4Cup gluten-free flour. Each time, the brownie comes out not like a brownie at all but as some weird gooey mess. 

 

Does anyone know of a mug brownie recipe that is perhaps better suited for gluten-free flour? 

 

Thanks!

Pamela's makes an individual brownie mix.

And it is basically the best thing you will ever put in your mouth, by the way.  Haha.

 

I have made a mug cake, in a big mug or bowl, with pamelas pancake mix.  Just messing around one day but I have made it a few times since then.  My store stopped selling the individual brownie pouches :( So it is out of neccesity.  If I ordered the 12 pack online I would blow through them and my butt size would increase, I have no self control.

 

Basically what I did was, using a food scale, tried to make everything equal 100 grams because that is the size of the pamelas packet.  I started with 2 Tbsp. cocoa, some sugar, a drop of vanilla, and then I added the pancake mix (could use any flour blend here probably) up to 100grams.  Now, if you don't have a food scale you could probably do the same thing with... I dunno a 2/3 cup measure?  That' a rough estimate there.  

 

Then I added 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, 2 Tbsp, water (like the pamelas pouch calls for), stir it up and taste for sweetness, then add a little more water to get to a brownie batter consistency.  Microwave for a minute, then in 10 second increments.

 

You can use less oil but it won't be fudgy like a brownie, it'll be more like a cake, especially with the evaporation in the microwave.  But still tasty :)  I will have to make it again some time this week and measure things out a little better as I go, and post a recipe.  I will try it with my KAF baking mix to see how that takes as well.

 

Edit to add:  if you aren't worried about it going stale, you can just get a brownie mix and experiment with that, just use equal parts water and veg oil to start with, and maybe a half cup of mix?  I also can't keep a whole thing of brownie mix around due to lack of self control, haha.

Okay so I took one for the team and tested my mug cake recipe with actual measurements.  This comes out in between cake and brownie.  I think if you added more fat it may be more fudgy like a brownie.

 

2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder

2-3 Tbsp Sugar (I used 2, to make it real good use 3)

1/2 cup Pamelas pancake and baking mix

1 drop vanilla

2 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil

2 Tbsp + a few more drops water

 

Stir it all up in a big mug or a bowl, microwave 1 minute, then in 5 second increments until done.  Enjoy!   

I think this would probably work well with any gluten-free baking mix.  Maybe I will try it out with gluten-free bisquick or KAF baking mix next time to see how it tastes. :)

Mmmm, this sounds delicious! I'm definitely going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing!
