Xan: brownie-in-a-mug!


Greetings Vongsas, we have attained middle school reading level.

Brownie in a mug.

I can has browneez in a mug?  (Okay that time was a cat)

This is currently the best dessert recipe I own:

Brownie in a mug (modified from Internet):
Prep time: 3 minutes
Cooking time: 90 seconds.  90 SECONDS

  1. In a coffee mug, mix 2T water, 2T olive oil (or melted butter), 1/4t vanilla, dash of salt, and half an egg (can do up a full egg, but half an egg is better.  Save the other half for a friend...or for yourself tomorrow!)
  2. Add 2T cocoa powder, mix well.  Add 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup flour, mix well.
  3. Optional: add whatever mix-ins you want (coconut, chocolate chips, etc)
  4. Microwave for 60-90 seconds, to your liking.  Center should be slightly molten.  
  5. Add ice cream and enjoy!  This is a very important step.

This is really more like chocolate cake in a mug, but seriously: MAKE THIS NOW.  Still tinkering with it, but already it's pretty good.  Who knew you could make cake in a microwave?  But then, why not?

On the one hand, this is a good recipe for people who don't want to be tempted by an entire pan of brownies.  On the other hand, I predict that with this recipe in hand, your brownie consumption will go up LOL

^this concludes the posting marathon, kthxbye

Seriously, that is how we used to talk in middle school.  Actually I found it was really hard to communicate precise, meaningful information so I just gave up at parts where that was actually important.  Probably best if we never speak of (or like) this again. And don't worry parents: they grow out of it.  (mostly).

I know I am going to regret this post in the morning.
