Today I thought i'd share a recipe with you that I came across on Pinterest. I've tried many 'cake in a mug' recipes before. They are meant to be perfect for when you've had a sudden urge for something sweet, but to be honest they've all been revolting. I regret making them instantly and they go straight in the bin. However for some reason, if I come across a new recipe i'll give it a go, and I'm so glad I tried this one.
The search is over!
It's a keeper!
Two minute mug brownie - Adapted from - Source
1/4 cup plain/ all purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 Tbsp mild vegetable oil or melted butter
2 Tbsp milk or water
In your heatproof mug, mix all the dry ingredients together so there are as little lumps as possible. Make sure you get right to the bottom. Then add your wet ingredients, mix so you get a yummy chocolaty paste. Again make sure no dry ingredients have been left out at the bottom of your mug. At this point you can add some chocolate chips, whatever takes your fancy.
Microwave on high for 30 seconds at a time. Each microwave varies. I find that after a minute mine is done to how I like it. It's cakey on top with a gooey brownie mixture underneath. If you want pure cake carry on for another 30 seconds until it's how you like it. Just make sure it doesn't get that burnt smell!
Eat warm. I sometimes add a scoop of vanilla ice cream..oh it's sooo good! Hot and cold go together so well sometimes. This is perfect for sharing and is fairly rich so I like to snuggle on a chilly evening with Ian and share it with him.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
