What Is A Microwavable Brownie Mix?

While this trend has died down a couple of years ago, it is back in full swing! Microwavable brownie mix is an incredibly quick and easy way to bake brownies without the need for an oven.

The instant high heat from the microwave cooks the brownies much faster and there is no need to wait for the oven to preheat. Furthermore, by making a premix you are cutting out a ton of prep time. All you now have to do is add some liquid ingredients and get baking!

How to make a microwavable brownie mix

So, the recipe we are making today is a premix. A pre-mix consists of only dry ingredients and can be stored in an airtight container for a couple of months. Just make sure to store the powder in a cool dry place to prevent any moisture from creating lumps.

Once your premix has been made, you can easily add the liquid ingredients (as we have listed them in the recipe below), give the mixture a stir, and bake them inside of the microwave.

Now, one thing to keep in mind is that any alternations made to the recipe may alter how it bakes in a microwave. For example, whole chocolate pieces may seize from the extreme heat whereas in the oven they slowly melt.

But, the best way to figure out what works and what doesn’t is to experiment at home. Just remember to take notes to which you can refer back to in the future.

  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 cup cake flour, sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt

Wet ingredients for the microwavable brownie mix

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted then cooled
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped (or chips)
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate, chopped (or chips)

Step by step instructions

Step 1: Make the brownie pre-mix

To make the pre-mix, simply combine all of the dry ingredients together and give them a good stir. You can also add the chopped chocolate or chocolate chips now or later.

Then, if you aren’t going to be using the brownie pre-mix now, make sure to store it inside of an airtight container or glass jar.

Step 2: Make the brownie batter

Once you are ready to make your brownies, start by preparing the baking dish. Make sure to use a microwave-safe container or bowl. Line the baking dish with some non-stick cooking or baking spray to ensure the batter doesn’t stick to the container.

Next, make the brownie batter. To start, decant all of the pre-mix into a large mixing bowl. Then, add the melted and cooled butter alongside the 2 eggs. Mix the ingredients together until a smooth lump-free batter forms.

Finally, fold in the chocolate chips if you haven’t already added them to the pre-mix.

Step 3: Bake the brownies

Pour the brownies into your lined container. Level it using a non-stick spatula.

Then, microwave the mix for roughly 3-4 minutes on a high heat setting. The center of the brownies should still be soft and moist, but the outside should be just set.

Step 4: Cool and cut the brownies

Once the brownies have been completely baked, allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before unmolding them from the baking dish. Allow them to cool completely before attempting to slice them. Finally, cut the brownies into the size of your choice.

Tips And Tricks

  • You can add any type of chocolate chips to this mix that you’d like. We also love adding some white chocolates to give the brownies a variety of colors. The kids absolutely love it!
  • You can also choose varying intensities of cocoa powder. Of course, you get sweetened versions, but you also get unsweetened forms and dark chocolate forms. Make sure to choose a flavor that will match the chocolate you are adding to the mix.
  • When storing the brownie pre-mix, make sure to keep it inside an airtight container in the pantry. You can also store it inside a re-sealable plastic bag
  • You can easily adjust the texture of the baked brownies. This can be done by slightly under-baking or over-baking them. For gooey brownies, only microwave them for 3 minutes. And for firm brownies, microwave them for 5 minutes to ensure they aren’t moist.
  • Believe it or not, there is actually a correct and incorrect way to cool and cut brownies. Have a look at this tutorial to ensure you aren’t left with broken pieces.
  •  
  • If you want to bake these brownies in an oven, you can do so for 20-22 minutes at 350°F (180°C).
  • You can serve these brownies with any topping or accompaniment that you would like. Of course, everybody loves freshly baked gooey brownies. But, you can serve it with some powdered sugar, mini marshmallows, vanilla ice cream, or homemade custard.

To make these in a mug, divide the mixture between a couple of mugs. The exact amount will largely depend on the size of the mugs themselves.

Then, simply microwave the brownies for 1-2 minutes. The exact time again depends on the size of the portions. For smaller portions, you only have to microwave the brownies for a minute. But, larger portions need to stay 30-60 seconds longer.
