Brownie for One

It's not the most photographic dish,
 but it gets the job done.
The mug brownie, or "Emergency Brownie" as I like to call it, is one of those survival methods we all should know, right up there with stop drop and roll and the basics of stranger danger. Perfectly invented for those nights where you just NEED something sweet, these are for one person, made in the microwave, and are prepared with ingredients that most people have lying around. I'll make it short and sweet (pun definitely intended) because I know how aggressive these craving can make a person. Just know that this recipe can be manipulated (milk vs. cream, or sour cream instead of mayo) and chocolate chips are always welcome.

Mix together-

1 1/2 tbsp cream

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise (just trust me)

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tsp flour

pinch of salt (about 1/8 tsp)

     -in a Microwavable mug until combined. Nuke on high for 1-2 minutes, depending on how you like it. Closer to one minute will give you a fuggier brownie (my personal favorite), and close to two minutes will give you a chewier brownie with an edge on the sides. PLEASE let it cool for about 5 minutes (just put it in the freezer) because it will burn your taste buds mercilessly, which means all that hard work for nothing.
