Yummy One-Cup Desserts

Have you ever just laid down and all of a sudden you are craving a brownie? Well, you aren’t alone. We have all been there before. You go about your day as normal and the next thing you know you are craving something sweet. Now if you can, you can always go to the bakery but sometimes you just want to have a lazy day in. This then makes things a bit difficult because you may have the ingredients at home but that doesn’t mean you want a whole tray of brownies or cakes. So what are your options really? You may be surprised to know this but you can still get your sweet treat fix without baking an entire cake.

In fact, all you will really need is a microwave, one cup, and a few ingredients. That’s right, you can get your sweet treat fixed with as little as that. For our first sweet dessert, we have to talk about everyone’s favorite, chocolate. Now you may be craving a brownie or even a slice of cake but like we mentioned before you don’t want to bake a whole tray. This is where the cake in a mug comes in. All you will need to pull this off is all-purpose flour, white sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, milk, oil, water, and vanilla extract.

Now if you would like to, you can mix all your ingredients in a bowl before adding them to the cup. But if you would really like to stick to the one cup method, you can simply mix your ingredients in your cup or well mug. The best thing about this recipe is that it will only take your dessert about 1 minute and 45 seconds to cook. Now isn’t that fantastic? But wait, there is more you can do. This includes making various cakes and cookies you can make in one cup. We are talking about choc chip cookies, funfetti cakes, S’more cakes and so much more. All you have to do is take some time to Google, have the ingredients, a cup, and a microwave.
