I remember asking her for the recipe (not so many but still years ago).. I'm pretty sure I wowed some dinner guests with it.. then kinda proceeded to forget about its existence until the other day when another Ms S mentioned she'd "baked" a cake in her microwave... her mister attested to its tastiness and she is a keen baker (using an oven) and cook, so I don't doubt its yumminess.. but it DID remind me of the mug brownie... I did a quick search of my emails to see if I had Ms S's recipe.. but alas.. no luck.. then I thought, surely the tinternet would supply me with one!! I was not disappointed!!
This is the recipe which is on most websites:
- 2 T Vegetable oil
- 2T Water
- 1/4 tsp. Vanilla extract
- dash salt
- 2T Unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4T Granulated sugar
- 4T Flour
I also found this recipe and adapted my brownies according to people's comments and tweaked it a bit..
Caz's Mug Brownies:
1T Vegetable oil - I would have used applesauce but I didn't have any..
1/4 t Vanilla extract
2T cocoa powder
2T Granulated sugar
The websites say combine wet ingredients, then add cocoa powder, then sugar, then flour, but I just dumped everything in the mug and gave it all a good mix with a fork...
We had some mini marshmallows which the mister brought home from somewhere.. apparently the girlfriend or one of his co-workers works at a coffee shop and they were getting rid of them? *shrug* - anyways, I threw a few on top for good measure...
We have a 800W microwave and I zapped mine for 60 secs. and they were pretty good.. still a teeeny bit wet at the bottom, so maybe a bit longer woulda been ok.. depends how you like your brownie I guess!!
