Sometimes you might need a little more than a single-serve I know, and that would be why I have a number of brownie recipes in our recipe box, such as vanilla, chocolate, and such.

I want to first off say there are two ways to cook these, one way is quick and simple: the microwave. About a minute and it’s done depending on your microwave.

The other way is in the oven. I have used both methods… loving how quickly it cooks in the microwave, but we were a microwave-less household for quite a few years by choice so I often used my oven to make this when I needed a pick-me-up.

This is a great treat at the end of a long day. Maybe top with a little sprinkling of powdered sugar. Or mix up a little frosting. Oh man, vanilla ice cream would be amazing on this, you know, if you can hold on to, eating all the ice cream, which I can not do.
