This is another dessert as part of the "Last-Minute Dessert" series I'm doing.
The Mug-Brownie is probably even easier than the Muffin recipe.
Overall, it took me 10 minutes to make.
My mug is a "Like a Sir" mug I made in graphics class last year :D
Step 1: The Ingredients
- 35g / 1/4 cup / 60ml of Self-Raising Flour
- 55g / 1/4 cup / 60ml of Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder
- 2 Tablespoons of Cooking Oil (doesn't have to be sunflower)
- 3 Tablespoons of Water
- Ice Cream (optional)
- A Spatula
- A Wooden Spoon
- A Mixing Bowl
- A Mug
- A Serving Plate (optional)
- A Tablespoon
- A Kitchen Scale or a Measuring Cup
- Something to Eat With.
- A sieve
Step 2: Add All of the Dry Ingredients.
The Dry Ingredients:
Put all of the dry ingredients (35g flour, 55g sugar, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder) into the bowl and mix them with a wooden spoon!
It is important that you mix them otherwise it will not rise properly (I forgot to mix them...)
It is recommended that you put them into the bowl flour first, then sugar, then sieve the cocoa powder to get rid of lumps.
Step 3: The Rest of the Ingredients
Put all of the other ingredients (3 tablespoons of water, 2 tablespoons of oil) into the bowl with the mixed dry ingredients.
Once you have done this, mix it with a spoon.
You should mix until the mixture becomes quite thick and consistent (smooth).
Try and get all the annoying ingredients that get stuck to the edge of the bowl in as well.
Step 4: Putting the Mixture Into the Mug
Putting the Mixture in the Mug
Use your spoon or spatula to scrape out all of the mixture from the bowl and into the mug.
Step 5: Putting It Into the Microwave
Set the microwave to 1 minute 40 and put in the mug.
Step 6: To Finish
Take out the mug form the microwave (careful, it's hot!)
If you're messy (like me) then the inside edge of the mug will have battle scars, but it doesn't matter unless you really want perfect presentation, in which case I'm not sure how to help.
You can serve it with ice cream, or just eat it :)
The next step is completely optional.
Thank you for looking at this mug-brownie recipe. If you made it, please put it in the comments and if you didn't enjoy it, tell me why and I'll try to help. Thanks!
Step 7: Optional Step
This step is if you want to put your mug-brownie on a plate.
Simply turn the mug upside-down onto the plate.
If it doesn't seem to be working, put it back in the microwave for 30 seconds.
However, putting it in the microwave hardens it up and makes the edge chewy.
