Single Serve Brownie

When I made a single serve cookie a few weeks ago, I wasn’t sure if many people would actually want to make it….I was wrong. Turns out we love single serve recipes. So here’s another one, I made single serve brownie this time. 

Out of the ones I have done, this one is the easiest so if you appreciate a warm fudgy brownie……I think you definitely have to make this right now!

Can this be microwaved? 

If you don’t have a mini toaster oven, sometimes baking a single serve dessert may seem like a waste of energy.

And by that I mean a waste of your ovens energy and your own because you have to take all the pans out of your oven, pre-heat it and then put one small thing in there. So I wanted to see if this could be microwaved instead. 

You can microwave this however, the texture is different. Baking it in the oven will give you a more fudgy brownie, a microwave will give you a more cakey one. 

I prefer the texture of it when it is baked in the oven, but they taste good either way.

If you want to microwave it, just add the batter into a mug and microwave it for 1 minute 30 seconds. Depending on the power of your microwave, the time will vary, so just keep an eye on it!
