    Just how vital is the flour to this recipe?
    I used up the last of it yesterday.

    I've modified this recipe a bit and it really improves the outcome.

    Instead of using plain oil, mix half and half vegetable oil and melted butter. A splash of almond extract gives a bit more moisture and adds some cherry flavour, and only microwave it for 2:30-2:40 minutes, NOT the indicated 3 minutes. 3 is far too much.

    I've also experimented with different types of cake using this recipe. For an 'extra chocolate' one, replace the cocoa powder with ovaltine powder.

    Chocolate Liqueur Cake:
    Replace 2 of the 3 tablespoons of Milk with Chocolate Liqueur. Keep recipe the same otherwise.

    Lemon Liqueur Cake:
    Remove cocoa powder, use 6 tablespoons of flour, replace milk with lemon liqueur, replace vanilla with lemon juice.

    Coconut Cake:
    Remove cocoa powder, 6 tablespoons flour (4 tablespoons white flour, 2 tablespoons coconut flour is best if you have it), replace milk with coconut milk, replace chocolate chips with shaved coconut, add more vanilla (just a bit more)




    I don't know how you people are getting such shit ugly cakes. Mine looks almost exactly like what's in the picture every time. Ideally you want to use a short, wider mug than a thin, taller one. Microwave it for less time, and make sure you mix it enough but don't overmix it.

    Uh... pretty vital.

    They can taste a bit microwaved if you don't do it right. Don't always follow recipes exactly, change it around how you think it should be if you know what you're doing.
    tried about 3 different recipes, none were even close to acceptable. i'd much rather just take a little extra time and actually make brownies/a cake.

    it'll be fine.





    maybe just a little gooier than expected.

    Try my alterations, Autumn.

    3 minutes is honestly WAY too long for this. Whoever originally made it probably had their microwave at half power or it was just a piece of shit.

    I used to make this but I would always add a bit of cinnamon. Tasted better than it did without the cinammon.

    Made this today. Used the OP's recipe along with Cheesemonkey's tips (with white, not brown sugar though):

    Cheesemonkey posted:
    do the op except add a pinch of salt and baking powder. and use brown sugar and add a touch more milk, maybe even another teaspoon

    also BE SURE to mix it well and cook it for a minute/minute-and-a-half
    It turned out good. It was half as big as the one in the OP when I dropped it on the plate, it rose when it was being microwaved but the instant the microwave stopped (after 1min 30s) the cake dropped down.

    Taste was good too. It wasn't a sponge this time.

    This is so fucking evil. It's 3:50 AM, I'm starving my ass off, and can't go downstairs to my kitchen without making a shitload of noise.. And I have the ingredients and some vanilla ice cream downstairs. Gahhhh, I foresee hopping into my CVPI and heading to 7-11 in the very near future....

    I just made one and it really didn't taste half as good as some people make it out to be. Maybe I should've used butter instead of oil.

    Love these things. I've made loads. Chuck a load of ice cream in with it after and it's perfect straight out the mug.
    Yeah it's not the best brownie but for a 5 minute desert you can't go wrong. Or I guess you can reading some of these...

    Made using the OP's, Ven Kaeo's, and cheesemonkey's tips with Kahlua, cayenne pepper powder, and pecan halves. Tastes pretty damn good.

    I've always had foul spongy brownies, until I tried some new edits today. Now it's moist and delicious (And lols because it was like, five inches above the mug in the microwave and as soon as I turned it off it popped back down)

    This is very tasty. I made quite alot of these and I made my own variant. The ingridients are very common and it is easy to make.
    You need:
    The largest cup you can find.
    Tablespoon/s
    Teaspoon
    DRY ingridients
    4 tbsp of flour
    2-4 tbsp of sugar (2= to bitter 3= perfect 4=to fucking sweet)
    2 tbsp of cocoa (does not mather what cocoa you use)
    A pinch of salt
    1/8 tsp of baking powder (be careful with it. To much and it will boil over the cup)
    Not more than this much baking powder:



    WET ingridients
    3 tbsp of cooking oil
    3 tbsp of water

    Preparation
    Put the DRY ingridients into your cup and stir with a spoon to even it out like this



    When you have done that, add the WET ingridients to your mixture. Stir with your spoon and even out the mixture so no white spots from your coke flour are visable. It should look like this when done



    Cooking

    Now when everything is done, it is time to microwave that bitch brownie. The cooking time depends on how you want it to be and your microwaves age and effect. On a 10 year old 750W microwave, 1.5 minutes aprox. is enough to make it like a mudcake. It is just trail and error here. Experiment until you get it right. Just make sure to open the microwave and take a look at it. Look like every 30 seconds.

    This is how it looks like after 1.5 minutes in the microwave:


    Images are img_thumb because they are big. Hope you like my version of it. Eat straight out of the cup and be aware that the cup is VERY hot.
