Microwave Brownie in a Cup


Microwave Brownie in a Cup


I'm leaving for Hawaii in 3 days, which means that I can't bake anything large.

Why is that you ask? Well, I learned my lesson two years ago when I left for 2 weeks to go camping. I made some delicious muffins before I left. I left the remaining in a container right in the middle of the kitchen, where I was hoping people in my house would see and eat.

But what happens when I get back? The container is now green and climbing with mold, and none of my muffins were touched! The thing with people in my house is that they will resist sweet things or desserts unless they are offered. Seriously, the self control on these people.

So I'm making another personal-sized dessert in a mug. Because I certainly don't need an invitation to have dessert. It seems to be a way of life for me.

Also having a brownie ready  in front of you in less than 5 minutes is definitely my idea of a good time.

  7. Those muffins wouldn't have lasted in our house -- in invitation needed! Love this brownie recipe, though -- perfect for those of us who have no self control! Have a great trip.

  9. I feel like it's the opposite here...if I leave ANYTHING in this apartment, the.boy will eat it before I get back. Even if I'm only gone for a day!

    Love the sound of these brownies in a mug though!
