Brownies redux

I orginially posted this brownie recipe in 2015, but thought I would repost it since I recently tweaked it a bit more. 🙂 The recipe is based on this recipe by Gina Homolka, except with some tweaks. I didn’t like the taste the water gave it, so I switched it out. I do think that if you replace the butter w oil, in the original recipe, you can use it for brownies in a mug. 

2-4 tbsp butter

1/3 cup sugar

1 egg

20-50 g of baking chocolate.

2 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

flavouring ( go wild. I have added a splash of coffee, cinnamon, etc.)

Pre-heat oven to 200 C

Melt the butter in a saucepan, remove from heat, stir in sugar, egg and cocoa powder. Add the baking chocolate, stirring until it is completely melted.

Mix until smooth, before blending in the flour, when there are no flour streaks, add eventual flavourings. Then, add the baking powder. Stir until the baking powder is blended in.

Grease a small pan , and pour in the batter. Spread out the batter so that it forms a more or less even layer.

Put the in the hot oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
