    One epic mug cake Barry!!! 😀 Love brownies!

  8. Andreastyl on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

    I always get a bit worried when I make cake in a mug (any variety) that it
    will come out raw so I always overdo it! What should the right kind of
    consistency be?

    • Kaitlynn Koppenhaver on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      You can always do an eggless mug cake. I have made them many times and
      they’re just as good as the ones with eggs.

    • Andreastyl on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      +Kaitlynn Koppenhaver Ooo I might try that thank you! 🙂 xx

    • Ineffable Paradox on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      +Andreastyl This recipe is eggless.

    • TheNpcsim on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      +Andreastyl Well since this recipe doesn’t use an egg, you won’t have to
      worry about undercooking. I’ve made countless mug cakes and never got sick
      from them. My consistency was always chewy and somewhat wet. Never liquidy

    800 watts…..aren’t you like….a professional chef? How do you not have a
    microwave that is worth something ? o.0 1100 is like the minimum

    • Domenic Ottaviano on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      +animewisher Because chefs dont need poxy microwaves

    • animewisher on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      +Domenic Ottaviano
      Yah…when a real answer has been given, there really isn’t a need for a “X
      is superior and doesn’t need Y” answers.

      Which also, if you pride yourself on ANY type of work, even your least used
      tool is that of good quality, so that no matter what you make it will be
      top quality.

    • DJKaySwift on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      +animewisher you still can make quality products with crappy tools though.
      might not last as long but still can do roughly the same job. its the chef
      not the tools that make the food.

    • Caitie C on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

    I assume it is okay to use oil (grape seed oil) instead of butter, right?

      Oil does not work I just tried

    • Arthur Sperotto on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      +Sniped245 Why not? I’m used to using it instead of melted butter on
      several recipes, I just put a little less. Why didn’t it work?

      There’s nothing in it that will kill you, so I think you are perfectly
      fine. Just kidding, you have about 2 hours until you gradually begin
      excreting blood and dissolved intestine from every orifice of your slowly,
      withering-away body.

    Liquid heart attack in a cup!
    Wow, there’s not likely anything that can pack more calories in one cup.

    One think I don’t understand is the reason for self-raising flour… It
    doesn’t raise, nor is it given the time to do so, so I think normal flour
    might work just fine as well? Only difference is that self-raising flour is
    slightly salty.

    • Trisha Bartlett on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      Self rising flour already has baking powder in it. If you use regular flour
      you’ll need to add 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. The exact measurement is
      1 1/2 teaspoon to every cup.

    • Keith Aylward on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

      Lard in a cup would pack more calories.

    if you don’t have self raising flour how much baking powder can you use?

      +leopringelchips 200g plain flour to 5g of baking powder

    Only watched 20seconds so far but I just wanted to say; I like how your mug
    isn’t spic and span perfection like most YouTubers would do. It looks like
    what most people’s would look like. Its relatable.

    This looks sooo good! When i look this up online and make it, it doesn’t
    look nearly as good as yours! Love it! 

  44. lizarrrdkiller on May 12, 2015: (Reply)

    I love the fact that you haven’t cleaned the cup and presented it all posh
    and stuff. This makes it much more “real” and believable. Because, let’s
    face it. Who’s got time to clean when all you really want is to stuff your
    face with that deliciousness.

    I tried this and it was too much like a cookie dough to be like a brownie
    so I added some milk to make it more liquidy like yours was(:

    Was I the only one with an issue? Cause it seems like the only liquid in
    this recipe was the butter. Unless I measured wrong or something..

      I think that the amount of butter was too much for that little mug, a
      couple of tablespoons would have been enough. Probably that much butter was
      the reason the brownie was still bubbling when he turned off the microwave
      and added the chocolate chunks

    • Doris Hattink on May 13, 2015: (Reply)

      +Daienara Hahaha oh my God I think I’m not going to make this recipe then.

    A tip for you all if you are constantly overcooking the brownie and it
    tastes like you’re eating an eraser: Put it in the microwave in intervals.
    I do 15-15-10-10-10 and it gives me a perfectly cooked brownie every time.
    I also open the microwave door after every interval so my brownie doesn’t
    raise over the mug and make a gigantic mess
