Chocolate Mug Brownie! (GF)

I've been meaning to make a chocolatey, (convenient) and magical mug cake for some time now. And guess what it's as easy as you've heard it to be. And it tastes amazing too (if you follow directions to a TEE).

We got this recipe from Glutenfreehelp.info, recipe link here.

It used sweet rice flour which we used for these delightfully adorable dumplings. The recipe said mug cake, this was more like a mug brownie, which was fine on our watch! It tasted kind of like easy bake oven, the flat chocolate cake disc, oh the sense memories!

Definitely give this a go if you're on the gluten-free train or if you're just curious about mug cakes (like we were :))

The best thing is you mix everything in the mug! Minimal mess!

Our roommate let us use her Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter oh my gosh! We're in love.

1/4 cup sweet rice flour
1/4 cup evaporated cane juice
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 egg
3 tbsp almond milk
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter or regular peanut butter

Mix everything in a 16oz mug (should fit 2 cups or water). Cook in microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes or until cake is cooked through (we have a microwave literally from 1950 so we cooked ours a bit longer.)

The cake didn't puff up to the top like we saw in some images, that's why we're deeming this more of a mug brownie.

Sprinkle with organic icing sugar :)

It's fudgey and dense as well as chewy around the edges. Mmmm!


  1. I used to make mug cakes all the time in Australia (peanut butter FTW), and it hurts my heart that I now live in a house with no microwave. WHERE'S MY FIVE MINUTE CAKE DARNIT. ;)

    1. Ah! no microwave! I guess that's a good thing since microwaves emit radioactive rays but still...cake! :)
