One of the most curious theories that explain the invention of the brownie is that this dessert was born by accident when a cook was trying to make a chocolate cake and forgot to use yeast. The result was delicious. Today, we want to explain a simple but delicious brownie recipe to you.

What are brownies?

The brownie is a typical American dessert. There are plenty of recipes for this delicious little chocolate cake. It’s generally accompanied by cream or ice cream to reduce the density of the cake.

Today, it’s a very popular sweet. Brownies aren’t only made in the United States, but in homes around the world. They’re also sold in restaurants as a dessert or snack and are often marketed made and ready to heat.

You can also make them at home. You don’t have to be an expert cook. As we said, the variety of recipes for this sweet is great, from the simplest to the most elaborate. Not only that, but different types of chocolate can also be used.

Dough for the chocolate brownie recipe

So that you can enjoy this delicious sweet, we suggest a very simple brownie recipe. It’s prepared in a few minutes and the result will surprise you. It’s perfect for a special snack or to surprise your guests!


To make this rich brownie recipe, you don’t need many ingredients. Here’s all you need:

  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons of flour (40 g)
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar (60 g)
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder (45 g)
  • 3 tablespoons of Nutella (45 g)
  • 1/4 of a coffee spoon of chemical yeast (1.2 g).
  • 6 tablespoons of milk (90 ml)
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (45 ml)


  1. First, put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them well. There’s no specific order, but it’s best to always put the dry ingredients first, mix them well, and then add the liquids.
  2. Then, take two cups and divide the dough between them.
  3. After, put a cup in the microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds at maximum power. Keep an eye on the brownie until it cooks to our liking.
  4. Accompany it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream.

You must put a plate under the mug when putting it in the microwave. Sometimes the batter overflows and can stain the inside of the appliance.

When it’s done cooking, you can eat the brownie straight from the cup. If you prefer to eat it on a plate, it’s best to spread the inside of the cup well with butter. This way, it’s much easier for you to take it out of the cup.
