A Buttery Chocolate Treat
Have you ever made the One Bowl Brownie recipe found on the box of Bakers Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Squares? It’s a mystery how 7 simple ingredients turn out to be the best fudge brownie one can put in their mouth. I mean, there’s absolutely no reason to buy a boxed brownie mix, ever. Plus, its made in a jiffy all in one bowl.
This Fudgy Chocolate Mug Brownie gets its roots from that one bowl recipe. The difference is that it’s made in one mug with some adjusted measurements and a few surprising enhancements.
One of those enhancements is the addition of Instant Espresso Powder. Coffee boosts the taste of chocolate without the taste of the coffee. So for more chocolate taste in your recipes, just add strong brewed coffee or some of this Instant Espresso Powder.
When making this brownie, use a large microwaveable mug. You don’t want to burn your hands and you need plenty of room for the brownie to rise when cooking.
First, you melt the butter and the chocolate together, then stir in the rest of the ingredients one at a time. The batter looks so delicious you’ll want to eat it up, but don’t give in to the temptation! It gets better after 70 seconds in the microwave.
The Magic That Happens In The Oven
Here is the best of the many assets this recipe holds. When you pull that mug out of the microwave, you’ll see a fluffy cake-like brownie on top. Give it a few minutes to cool, if you can stand the wait, then dig your spoon way down deep into the bottom of the mug. You’ll pull up a spoonful of nutty, ooey-gooey hot, and delicious chocolate sauced brownie. Yum!
What makes it even better is a scoop of ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top, and you’ve got yourself an instant Hot Fudge Sundae better than I-Hop!
