If you are an avid Pinterest-user then you probably have seen the pins about “Brownie in a Mug.” We thought it would be a fun to call Shenanigans on this Pinterest classic to see if it really works! Here is the link to the original pin.
The Recipe calls for:
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 tbsp cocoa
1 pinch of salt
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp of water
We added: Handfull of chocolate chips
1) Mix all of the listed ingredients and add as many chocolate chips as you would like.
The brownie in a mug does indeed work, but keep in mind that it is not as sweet as most store-bought brownies. It has a dark chocolate (a little bitter) taste when compared to a traditional brownie. It also has a much more cake-like than fudge-y texture. We think that this recipe could be adapted to be a little better, so we are going to experiment by adding a few of our own additions to this recipe. We will be sure to post any that turn out well! Please comment below if you have any versions of this recipe that you like better!
Although it did work we did not fully revoke shenanigans, because we believe that it could have tasted a little bit better than it did.
