In the midst of all the "Mug Brownie" madness on Pinterest, Mackenzie convinced me it was worth a try. I was very skeptical (a real Brownie in less than 2 minutes? Ha!). I'm a Brownie lover through and through, so if this was just a lump of cakey-chocolate disguising its self, I'd be the first one to know. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was really good, a genuine Brownie. It was incredibly rich, and totally busted my Brownie craving - and the best part is, there wasn't an entire pan left to
devour taunt me over the next few days. A great alternative for a once-in-awhile treat, and it pretty much rocks with a scoop of ice cream on top. (Personally, I cut the sugar in half when I make it.) Be sure to pin this recipe (below the picture)!
What you'll need:
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar ( I use 1/8 cup)
2 tablespoons cocoa
pinch of salt
1 tablespoons chopped nuts (optional)
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil (do NOT use olive oil as it is too strong)
3 tablespoons water
Add all dry ingredients to mug, then all wet ingredients. Mix well to combine. Microwave for 1 minute 40 seconds. Top with ice cream if desired. Enjoy!
