Late night yummies…

Ladies (and gents), do I have the ultimate one serving sweet for you!

Ever get to that point of the night, kids and hubby are in bed, the house looks like a bomb has hit it, the dishes still need to be done and your hankering for a little bit of sweet?

Well hold onto your knickers for the Brownie in a Mug!

What you need:

1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp Cocoa powder
2 tbsp oil (any will do, although I’ve only ever used vegetable oil)
3 tbsp water
Pinch of Salt
1 Mug


Throw it all into your chosen mug. Mix well. It’ll look quite runny but that’s ok.

Chuck it in the microwave. “What?” I hear you say! “Surely not the microwave??!!”


Nuke that little sucker for 1 minute and 40 seconds.


Be careful! It’ll be hot! At this stage you can either choose to add a bit of icecream, cream or whatever! I like mine with a dollop of smooth Peanut Butter!
