Brownie in a Mug

After that huge cookout on Friday, my head is totally blank. Totally!!! I guess it was all that food and so much strain… Even though I enjoyed it to the maximum, it kind of drained me off completely. I can really feel it in my work that I am doing at home! It may take a few days to get back to my normal self, I guess… As of now, I am planning at some minimal cooking, only in order to float and not go hungry!!! πŸ™‚ Yesterday I just didn’t cook, and I plan to go light Β today as well. Β I don’t have dinner as such, I can always ask HD to eat from outside and the only thing my little one needs is a bottle of milk! Thankfully, I have quite a bit sitting in my drafts that even if I don’t cook, my blog will not go hungry. πŸ˜‰


Today, I am posting another put together, bake and eat cake which can be done in just 5 minutes. Did I say cake? Nope, it’s a brownie! I never thought brownie and cake was different till I actually started baking and then noticing the difference in the texture. I used to always wonder why eggs are just added without any beating. Now I understand why it is so. πŸ™‚ Practise makes you perfect, right? This is a eggless quick brownie, just to settle your craving. I found it surprisingly fudgy, provided you do not overbake!!! πŸ˜‰Β Adapted from here

  31. I made a big mandatharam Rafeeda.. Kept in microwave for 2 minutes.. Felt it was a bit too moisty.. Kept for another minute.. It turned hard.. But I didnt give up.. Ate almost three fourth of the cup, before it became too hard.. So lessons learnt, but I will make this again for sure, when I have an instant brownie craving.. So so easy to make πŸ™‚
