Brownie in a Mug

If your craving a warm, gooey brownie, you can make this one in a mug and it's delish...and super rich. John was really leery about a microwaved brownie, but really liked it! I thought it was a great idea so I was limited to one brownie instead of being tempted by a whole pan. But it was so fast and easy to make...the temptation to have one often is a problem. Recipe from:

4 Tablespoons Flour
4 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cocoa powder (Note: don't use cocoa mix or quik, it shouldn't have any sugar)
2 Tablepsoons Vegetable Oil (Don't use one with a strong flavor, eg olive, sesame, etc)
2 Tablespoons Water
Dash of salt

Add the sugar, flour, cocoa, and salt to the mug and mix. Then add the oil and water and mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Be sure to be thorough, there's a tendency for clumps of the dry ingredients to form

Microwave on high for 45 seconds. You may have to microwave it longer or shorter, depending on your microwave, but the brownie should still be wet in the center when done.

It's done! Top it with a scoop of ice cream and eat right out of the mug!
