Brownie in a Mug Recipe

Hey y'all! Happy almost-summer to all of you; it's only three days away. Today I'm doing something I never thought I'd be doing on this blog, but I thought it was perfect for the early summer when many people are still working or even (bless your heart) still in school. I may not have gotten the baking gene in the family, however, little miss Avery did. This child has seen every single episode of Cake Boss at least twice. You think I'm joking. She loves to make a cake or cupcakes for any special event we have as a family: birthdays, holidays, sporting events, you name it. Whenever I watch her, we always make something, and most of the time it's in a mug. Sounds crazy but it's so great. Today I'm going to be showing you how we make brownies in mugs. Let's dive in.

We found this recipe on Pinterest and have made it many times. It's a super simple recipe, and the best part? It takes three minutes and cooks in the microwave. This easy treat is perfect for those late nights when you're craving something sweet and quick.

Avery and I both made these in our favorite mugs. I used my Newsies on Broadway "Seize the Day" mug and she used her my owl mug. These are so yummy and easy to make. I always want more. Check out the recipe below.

Brownie in a Mug

-1/4 Cup of Sugar
-1/4 Cup of Flour
-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
-Pinch of salt
-2 tablespoons of olive oil
-3 tablespoons of water

Combine all dry ingredients in your mug and mix. Add oil and water and mix until consistent. Pop your mug in the microwave for 1:40. Take it out, it'll be hot, and let it cool.

I cannot stress enough the most important step. Please, I beg of you. Please top it with ice cream. You will not regret it.

Here's to summer and many late-night mug creations
