Microwave Mug Brownie

I know I have mentioned this many times before, but sometimes Nate gets mad at me for making too many desserts. And most of those times I'm still convinced that I want something sweet and I am going to make something. But some of those times he says that even if I make something he won't eat any. Not even a single bite, or even one cookie. And of course I don't want to make a full bath of cookies, or a cake if he's not going to eat any. We can't have those delicious morsels going to waste, now can we?

So, after I was looking through my pinned desserts on pinterest I decided upon one. A single serve scrumpdiddylyumptious brownie, cooked in the microwave, in a mug. I got this delicious recipe from here, and followed it, almost exactly, but its one I want to remember, and its good enough that I want to share it with you as well. Don't worry, you can thank me later.

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBS cocoa powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 TBS vegetable oil
2 TBS water (or milk)

1. In a microwave safe mug (or maybe a ramekin) stir together the flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder and salt.
2. Stir in the oil and milk until you have a thick paste.
3. Microwave on high for anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute (depending on your microwave - mine was 45 seconds). It will be done when its springy on top but still a little gooey in the midle.
4. Enjoy warm. Maybe with a cup or milk, or topped with ice cream. **

**I had mine plain, but it was still delicious.

Nate did have one bite, and he thought it tasted a little like pudding, and I thought it tasted like a Betty Crocker Warm Delight. Either way, I hope you can enjoy this absolutely easy tasty dessert.

What do you make when you need a dessert for one on the spot?
