Ian has been in Alaska all week, so I’ve been on baby-duty round the clock. This weekend I desperately wanted a nap, but Lily only wanted to play. As is usually the case, Lily won. My compromise? A sugar boost from a mug brownie.
Have you ever heard of mug brownies? Made from pantry staples, these brownies are super easy and quick to make and they satisfy your sweet tooth. Did I mention, you make them in a mug? And in a microwave? Sweet genius. I suggest you go make one right now.
Recipe from Instructables.
4 Tbs. flour
4 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. cocoa powder
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 Tbs. water
dash of salt
- Add the dry ingredients to the mug and mix.
- Add the wet ingredients and mix. Be sure to mix thoroughly to avoid flour bubbles.
- Microwave brownie for about 1 minute. The brownie should be slightly moist in the center but not move if you tilt the mug.
Note: I usually halve the recipe when I don’t want to go too crazy on the sugar.
