Oven baking option
I love to cook this chocolate mug brownie in my microwave because it takes only 90 seconds. However, I reckon that this is not the healthiest way to cook food. So, I tested the recipe in the oven too to give you both options.
First, use an oven-proof ramekin. I am using a 9-cm (3.5-inch) diameter ramekin.
Next, bake at 180C (350F) for 8-12 minutes.
Finally, cool for 10 minutes in the ramekin as it is burning hot when out of the oven. Enjoy it in the ramekin.
Mug brownie topping ideas
There are plenty of ways to enjoy this vegan mug brownie recipe. The following are my favorite toppings.
I recommend adding the toppings before baking your brownies:
- Chocolate chips – add an extra teaspoon of vegan dark chocolate chips on top. It will melt in the oven and add the most delicious texture.
- Raspberries and chocolate chips -sprinkle a few raspberries along with the chocolate chips. You can use fresh or frozen raspberry. It doesn’t need to be defrosted. Raspberry and chocolate are the most delicious combo.
- Peanut butter – 1 or 2 teaspoons of peanut butter, drizzled on top.
You can also serve your vegan mug brownie with a scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream or some whipped coconut cream.
