For the final day of BM#57, Cooking in a Mug, I again made a dessert in Microwave. While this dish can be cooked in convection mode as well, I resort to microwave as it hardly takes time to get the final dish.
I am so fascinated with this Cooking in Mug dishes and I bought about 10 different MW Mugs just for this theme. I hardly ever shop and if its one thing I detest, its shopping. Though in the past, I had enjoyed an interlude of shopping for the blog.
Knowing that I am online all the time, one might say I do online shopping . No I don't, for the simple reason that I like to actually see what I am buying. There have been some exceptions in recent times to this statement. These mugs were ordered online and I was kind of disappointed because these ended up being so tall. I imagined a shorter mugs, and was fantasying on an dome for my mug cakes.
Now with the single serve concept, my cakes would hardly reach the top. In between, I used about 2 serving and baked in a single mug and the cake sort of had a dome. The kids were not happy that I was slicing their mug cake.
Anyway to cut the story short, I had thought of different flavours for my Mug Cakes apart from different dishes to be baked in a Mug. As it always seem to end, the series ended up being a series on Chocolate! You can question me, 'Why, why!". Sorry unfortunately, my premium customers only demand Chocolate!
Infact I am dreading the time when they will get over chocolate. God help me!
These mug treats are very quick and you can dig into it no time as the entire process takes only less than 5 mins.
So sending it to my Anniversary Party for Kid's Delight, celebrating 7 years of Spice your Life!
2 Minutes Microwave Drinking Chocolate Brownie with Chocolate Chunks
All purpose flour - 3 tbsp
Drinking chocolate - 2.5 tbsp
Melted Butter - 1.5 tbsp
Milk - 1 tbsp
Chocolate Chunks, White and Milk - 2 to 3 tbsp
How to make Drinking Chocolate Brownie
In the MW Mug, add the flour, drinking chocolate and fluff well.
Next add the chocolate chunks, combine. Now add the melted butter and mix
Depending on the consistency, add the milk and make sure your batter is not hard. You can add little bit more depending on the consistency.
Microwave on high for a minute, check and again Microwave for another minute.
I MW for only 2 mins and it was done.
Serve with chocolate sauce or icing sugar sprinkled on top.
The batter as such is not very sweet, the chocolate chunks surely help. However if you want you can add some sugar.
I served with chocolate sauce, so on the whole it was super delicious.
If you want cake like texture, add 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
For the second day of Cooking in a Mug, I selected a cobbler dish made with fresh Strawberry. A cobbler is a dish popular in US and UK, made with a fruit or savory filling topped with a batter or a crust. The dish is baked and served as a dessert.
While doing the international BM for last month, I selected some cobbler dishes, some crumbles. Seeing how Peddu loves strawberries, I decided to make this, It made a wonderful dessert, though getting used to strawberry takes some time.
