If you follow me on Twitter, you may have read some of my tweets on Tuesday all about this recipe. I came across a recipe from Food.com called "Brownie in a Mug." The recipe is super simple and tastes amazing! Vegan friends and egg allergies, you can make this too - no eggs necessary!
I love to bake, but don't always want to make a full batch. This recipe makes it soooo easy (and super fast) to fix my craving without making too much. One mug-brownie took about 5 minutes to prep, mix and "bake."
Serves: 1 (could be two if you feel like sharing)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
5 tablespoons water
- Add all of dry ingredients to mug.
- Mix well with a fork or small whisk until blended.
- Add oil and water.
- Mix well (add mix-ins if using).
- Put in the microwave and cook on high heat for 1 minute 40 seconds - 2 minutes.
- Add toppings or a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!
I give this recipe 4 stars - it's not completely a "brownie" in my mind but super close! Fudgy, goey, soft and yummy. Be sure to follow the recipe to a T or else it will not turn out correctly. Some mix-ins (such as marshmallow or jam) can compromise the integrity of the recipe, so I suggest adding those as a topping. This recipe is great for college kids - especially those without any other source of cooking except a microwave.
Disclaimer: Food.com did not send this recipe to me for promotional purposes. I made this recipe simply because I wanted brownies and was super curious to try it out.
