- Ready In:
- Combine all ingredients in a mug.
- Mix well.
- Microwave on high for 45-60 seconds, be sure not to overcook. Brownie should still be wet on sides and in the middle when done.
- Let stand to cool for a few minutes.
- Grab a fork and dig in!
What a great concept. I enjoyed this single-serving brownie every bit as much as I enjoy those that come from an entire batch. I made mine in a custard cup though, so it would look a little more appetizing than one that was sitting in the bottom of deep coffee mug. Thanks, TinkerToy. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.

The original recipe was grainy and too many calories. I substituted applesauce (2 tablespoons) for the oil, which saves you 220 calories, NOT 300, but it helps a ton on the fat content. The texture was wonderful and creamy but I couldn't escape the tart tang of the applesauce. I tried again, but this time chopped up one small square of dark chocolate (I used TCHO, but you could use Bliss or Godiva) and I chopped up three frozen dark cherries. I added this, along with the usual coco powder/apple sauce/sugar/flour/water/vanilla and the results were awesome. Dark chocolate cherry brownie! I also mixed it in one bowl and then transferred it to a small glass bowl sprayed with non stick spray. After letting the brownie cool for a few minutes, I ate it from this dish, but could have easily slipped it to a plate where you could spiff it up like a very fancy dessert. The next time I make this I'm going to do the applesauce but will add a small crushed candy cane.

There are never enough options for single-serving recipes. It's my goal to gather as many recipes for one as possible and get them out to my fellow live-aloners!
