Gooey Pressure Cooker Mug Brownie

by Kristen

My husband and I have tried making microwave mug cakes, cookies and other desserts a few different times, and have always been a little disapointed at how they turned out. A little on the dry side, and left us with most of it sticking to the actual mug.

A few months ago, I decided to try a pressure cooker chocolate chip cookie for one. It was so ooey, gooey and such an easy and perfect treat for when you want something. After making the pressure cooker chocolate chip cookie, I knew that I wanted to try a few more individual desserts in my pressure cooker. This past week, I was super stressed out and getting ready for Christmas when I decided that it was time to try a mug brownie in my pressure cooker. Obviousally it turned out excellent otherwise I wouldn’t be sharing this recipe with you on my website1

I use an Instant Pot Duo and I love it! There are lots of different kinds of pressure cookers out there though. This recipe was so easy, and I will show you a video on just how easy this is.

Pressure Cooker Mug Brownie


1.5 tablespoons of melted butter

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

3 tablespoons of sugar

3 tablespoons of flour

1/8 teaspoon of salt

3 tablespoons of milk

2 tablespoons of chocolate chips


In a mug, mix together melted butter, cocoa powder, sugar, flour, salt and milk. Add chocolate chips and mix in. Place tin foil over the top of your mug. Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of your pressure cooker. Add trivet. Place the foil covered mug on the trivet and close your pressure cooker. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes and let it naturally release for 5 minutes. Enjoy!

This was so good! This is a great way to indulge while keeping to a reasonable portion size. This brownie was so ooey and gooey. If it turns out too gooey for you, I would cook it for 1-2 more minutes.
