2 MINUTE BROWNIE IN A MUG: Shelter-in-Place Chocolate Goodness #9

So you're still Sheltered-in-Place, and you are dying for brownies, but you don't want to make a whole pan in case you end up eating them all. You've already made One Minute Molten Chocolate Cake in a Mug, but you really want a Brownie! Somethng more cake-like. Here's another 'mug' recipe for fool-proof 2 Minute Brownies in a Mug. You probably have all the ingredients. Be sure and sift the first three ... if not you'll have a lumpy end product, and not the brownie you're craving. Recipe from Ryan Scott from a segment on Rachel Ray of the Food Network.


1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil (one that’s not too strong is better, make sure it's fresh)
1-1/2 Tbsp water, at room temp
1 egg

Sift together sugar, flour, and cocoa powder. Add salt. Mix together olive oil, water and egg. Fold dry ingredients into wet. Pour into mug and microwave for 2 minutes (no peeking!!)

How easy is this? Top with whipped cream, raspberries, and or ice cream!

Delicious! It could use about 8 seconds less in the microwave—at least in mine. It was pretty entertaining watching it rise, though!
