Just in time for Friday…
This is a perfect dessert for those of us who love dessert, but love it so much that making an entire pan would be a bad idea.
Why you ask?
Because in two days, the whole 9x13 pan of brownies will be consumed.
That’s not so bad if you have a family of 6-7, but for a family of 2, well, that’s trouble.
Since I still love my desserts – my sister and I decided to try a brownie in a cup.
We decided it was perfect: just the right amount of work that you won’t make it every day, and just the right amount of rich, gooey chocolate to meet your craving.
Single Serving Brownie in a Cup
- 2 T white whole wheat flour
- 1 T sugar (slightly heaping)
- 1 T dark chocolate cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 2 T water
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- splash of vanilla
- 1 T dark chocolate chips
Combine the 2 T flour with 1 heaping T sugar, 1 T cocoa powder 1/4 tsp. baking powder and a pinch of salt in a small mug, cup or bowl. We used a 1 C serving bowl and it fit perfectly.
Add in 1 1/2 T water, 1 tsp. olive oil and a splash of vanilla. Stir until well mixed. Don’t forget the the dark chocolate chips!
Microwave on high for 30 seconds, adding an additional 15-30 seconds if needed.
Top with ice cream and serve.
Use caution when eating – the contents are really hot!
