Single Serve Brownie Recipe

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Brownies are popular for a reason (check out this article to learn about the invention of brownies). But sometimes you want a delicious, fudgy, brownie but don’t want a whole pan. That’s where this single serve brownie recipe comes in. You can make brownies for just one person. And you don’t need a special individual brownie pan, you just need an 8oz ramekin to make a delicious individual brownie. Enjoy!

A brownie in a white ramekin sits on a black plate. The brownie is topped with ice cream. A silver spoon with a bite of brownie rests on the plate in front of the ramekin.

Single Serve Brownie Recipe

Yield: 1 brownie
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Indulge in the ultimate solo treat with this delicious brownie (for just one person)! Savor the rich chocolaty goodness and fudgy perfection, all in one delightful, easy-to-make serving.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8oz ramekin and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl melt the 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir in the 1 1/2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
  3. Stir in the 1 1/2 tablespoons plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons milk, and 1/8 teaspoon vanilla.
  4. Add the 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour and stir just until combined. Pour the brownie batter into the ramekin.
  5. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few fudgy crumbs (shouldn't have liquid batter on the toothpick).
  6. I recommend serving this warm with whipped cream or ice cream on top!


    For additional chocolaty goodness, I recommend adding 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips. Just fold them in after you add the flour.

    You can also add additional crunch by putting in 1 1/2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts. Fold them in after you have added the flour.

    How to Dress Up Your Single Serve Brownie

    While I think this brownie is perfect just the way it is, you can definitely mix things up to make it even more decadent and delicious.

    • Make frosted brownies by whipping up this single serving chocolate frosting or small-batch cream cheese frosting.
    • Add chocolate chips, butterscotch chips or peanut butter chips to your brownies. Just fold in 2 tablespoons after you’ve mixed in the flour.
    • Add crunch by putting nuts in the batter. Fold in 1 to 2 tablespoons of chopped nuts (such as pecans or walnuts) after you’ve mixed in the flour.
    • Make a brownie sundae by topping your brownie with ice cream and chocolate syrup or hot fudge. (check out my easy single-serving chocolate syrup recipe).
    • Warm up a little bit of peanut butter and drizzle it over the top.
    • Add a fruity twist by topping with berries such as blueberries, raspberries or chopped strawberries.
    • Anything else you can think of!
