3 Mug Brownie Recipes To Enjoy In This Cozy Weather

Enjoying the chill in the air from the recent weather? Here’s a neat and speedy way to enjoy some indulgence while you’re all cozy indoors.  Go ahead and whip up for yourself a mug brownie using just your microwave. These instant desserts are cute, kind of a cross between regular brownies, a cake, and a soufflé.



We've selected and adapted three simple recipes; a regular Pinoy tsokolate one, a gluten-free one, and a mint-chocolate version. Once they’ve come out, enjoy them while they’re warm, don’t let them get cold! For added decadence, have your mug brownie with a scoop of ice cream, as suggested by baking kit group @bakedincakes in the UK.
