Microwave Brownie

Have you ever just really wanted a brownie, but didn't want to spend forever making a whole batch? If so, this is the perfect recipe for you.  I love to do this on the nights that I am starving around 8:00 but there is nothing to eat.  It only takes a few minutes and it is great. Especially if you put ice cream on top. MMMMMmmmmm.

  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbs water
  • Few drops vanilla extract
  • A dash salt
  • A pinch instant coffee powder (optional)
  • 3 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbs all purpose flour
    1. In a 12 oz coffee mug, mix water, oil, salt, vanilla and coffee, if using. Whisk well.
    2. Add cocoa powder, whisk well. Add sugar, whisk well. Add flour, whisk well.
    3. Microwave for 60-75 seconds: 60 seconds for a molten bottom, 75 for uniformly done. I normally choose 60.
    4. Enjoy with a spoon and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Careful, brownie will be hot.
