Was that really a week and a half ago I said I'd be back with something I do like about my kitchen? Life continues to get in the way of my creative pursuits. Little life things, like tires that have a habit of finding rogue screws, children with 4 day weekends (already?) and a hubby who decided to have a last minute surgery to remove 46ish lipomas.
Since we aren't using the cabinets in our kitchen we've had to get creative with storage. This bottle rack has served us well and given me an excuse to buy pairs of pretty coffee cups. The only problem is, I don't actually like coffee. It forces me to find other excuses to use them: cocoa, cereal, ice cream...
Yes. Mug brownies. I feel bad doing this to you. They are evil. On the plus side, it only makes one serving. So actually I'm doing you a favor? It will keep you from eating half a pan of brownies, right?
4 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons Water
Pinch of salt
Put dry ingredients in mug and stir. Add oil and water and mix well. Microwave 1 minute or until desired degree of chocolatey doneness has been achieved. We like ours a little on the soft and gooey side. Then sprinkle with a smattering of chocolate chips. You know, in case it wasn't chocolatey enough.
It's probably best to have someone else make this for you so you don't have to think about what's in it. This stuff is no joke. It's rich. And dreamy. You may want to share with someone you love. Then again you may not.
