Stir together the dry ingredients in a 6 to 8-ounce microwave-safe mug.
In a separate bowl, use a fork or small whisk to thoroughly beat one egg. Measure out 1 tablespoon of the beaten egg and add it into the mug.
Add the vanilla, milk, vegetable oil to the mug and stir to make a batter. Mix in ½ of the chocolate chunks and sprinkle the other half over the top.
Microwave 1 minute to 1 minute 15 seconds. The mug cake is done when it no longer appears wet across the top of the mug cake.
If you want a larger serving of this fudgy chocolate brownie, make it in a separate mug. Do not increase the amounts in this recipe. Simply Increasing the quantities will not give you the same delicious result without significant adjustments to the recipe and cooking time.
The brownie batter ingredients can be made right in the mug itself. I like to stir the dry ingredients together first to make sure they’re well combined. Then mix in the wet ingredients.
Brownie in a mug does not rise much; just a little bit. I recommend a 6 to 8-ounce mug. Depending on your mug’s shape/size, the brownie may not come up to the top edge but will still taste delicious.
The egg in the recipe adds some leavening and makes a chewier brownie. You wouldn’t think a tablespoon of egg could make a difference in your mug cake, but it does! Of course, you can skip this ingredient, and you will still have a nice brownie in a mug, but if you can, add in the egg. You can make about 3 recipes from one egg.
