The microwave craze for quick comfort food continues with the cookie in a mug. I decided to give it a try and see what all the fuss is about, knowing very well that I would love it. It was quick to do, especially late at night when craving a chocolate hit and as I had everything on hand I imagine this to be a very big trap and must immediately put it out of my mind. If you are keen to give it a go, here is my take on the recipe.
melt 1 tbs of butter in your mug in the microwave for 30 seconds
add 2 tbs brown sugar and mix well
whisk in one egg yolk and 1 tsp vanilla
add 3 tbs of plain flour and mix well, then stir through 1 1/2 tbs of choc chips
smooth the surface ( attempt to scrape down the sides) and then cook for approx one minute
Enjoy a little more than you should!
Have you tried one yet, or have you resisted the urge?
