This also looked like a fun, easy recipe to do with my girls. So, Tuesday night after dinner, we nuked up a few.
Again, there are all kinds of Mug Brownie recipes out there--even gluten free ones! Here is the recipe we followed.
Submitted by: SCHWEETIE13
Ingredients: 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I used Hershey's), 2 Tablespoons sugar. 2 Tablespoons flour, pinch of salt (I omitted this), 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp canola oil (you can use different oils, but do not use a strong flavor oil such as sesame. I used vegetable oil), 2-3 Tablespoons of water
Supplies Needed: Microwave safe mug, measuring spoons, fork
**Oven wattages vary, so cooking times vary as well. If you use a mug with a shiny interior, you don't need to spray it with non-stick spray.
**The brownie will be HOT and the mug may be warm. Make sure the brownie is cool before giving the mug to your child. You could also transfer the brownie to a different dish, but eating a brownie out of a mug is part of the fun!
- Combine dry ingredients in a mug and blend with a fork.
- Add wet ingredients and blend well. (The mixture will be quite thick. Add additional 1 Tbsp of water for a brownie that is less dense.)
- You could stir in chocolate chips, marshmallows or chopped nuts at this time.
- Microwave the mug and ingredients on high power for approximately 1 minute or until desired doneness is reached. (Ideally, you are looking for a partially soft center. The brownie will cook a bit after the time is up!)
- Top with desired toppings and enjoy!
In conclusion, I would be willing to try it again, but would mix in something like coconut and nuts and maybe adjust the cooking time. I don't have any pictures of the ones we made because my phone battery died, but they looked very similar to the one at the top of this post. :)
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
