Brownie In A Mug

3 Apr

Have you ever had those nights where you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, but don’t want to go through the time and effort of making the whole cake? Well imagine coming across a pin that teaches you how to make a brownie in a mug! It’s the perfect single serving for a little self-indulgence, and takes less than two minutes in the microwave. Sounds too good to be true right?

If you like to bake, then you’ll find that the ingredients are probably always stalked in your kitchen. The prep-time is very quick, and the recipe does not call for any eggs. Just measure, mix, and pop it in the microwave.

Not So Sweet

When I took my brownie out of the microwave, I was delighted with the results and couldn’t wait to taste it. Unfortunately, this single-serving treat did not live up to my expectations. The consistency was good and very fudgy (not sure if that’s a word but you get it), but the taste was far from sweet.

Perhaps it needed more sugar, or maybe some brown sugar, but it would have probably been more satisfying to just take 30 minutes a make a whole tray of brownies. Maybe you really shouldn’t take the easy way out… at least not when it comes to dessert.

But perhaps not all single-serving treats in a mug turn out as failures. I would love to hear about any desserts you’ve tried in a mug that have come out absolutely pinperfect.

At least the ice cream was yummy.

      Oh wow, that’s sounds much worse than a bad tasting brownie. Thanks for your feedback!

    Experiments are great! I scrambled an egg like this one time — it actually worked and tasted pretty good! (Best part was the easy clean-up.)

      That sounds great! I would have never thought to make eggs that way… definitely trying it soon.
