Have you ever craved something chocolate and didn't want to bake a whole cake or heat up the kitchen? I know, silly question! Well, for times like that or to just treat yourself or someone else, I found a dandy recipe that comes to the rescue, a mug brownie! There is no mess, it's all assembled in a coffee mug and baked in the microwave in a snap! Since all microwave ovens are not the same on speed, you may have to practice with yours, mine took more like 2 mintues, so keep that in mind.
4 Tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder ( the real stuff)
2 tablespoons veggie oil
2 tablespoons water
dash of salt
Place dry ingredients in a coffee mug and mix well with fork. Add oil and water, mix well again. Microwave on high for 1 min. ( could be more or less depending on your microwave) The brownie should be wet in the center when done. Let cool, enjoy!
Wouldn't this make a cute Mother's Day gift idea? And for hot summer nights when you want something sweet and gooey? I hope you will treat yourself to this treat, you'll have too before you make it for someone else! Enjoy!
