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 option. First, use an oven proof ramekin, I am using 9 cm (3.5 inches) 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 directly in the ramekin.
Mug brownies toppings ideas
There is plenty ways to enjoy this vegan mug brownie recipe and those are my favorite toppings. I recommend adding the toppings before baking your brownie
- 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 few raspberries along with the chocolate chips. You can use fresh or frozen raspberry it doesn’t need to be defrosted. Raspberry and chocolate is 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.
