Well, first thing’s first, I can’t go any further without mentioning that amazing chocolate brownie in a mug which seemed to be rather popular on my Instagram! I had been wanting to try a cake in a mug recipe for ages, but I don’t actually like cake all that much (weird, I know) so when I spotted a brownie recipe I had to try it out immediately. I saw a recipe posted on Glossy Box’s Facebook page, of all places, so I made a few little adjustments and came up with my own version. It was pretty filling so I think I would half the ingredients next time, and maybe microwave it for not quite so long so it was a bit more gooey in the middle. If you want to make one (which I suggest you definitely do!), you’ll need:
3 tbsp caster sugar
4 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp coca powder
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp chocolate chips (I actually used M&Ms)
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Just mix all the ingredients together in a mug, shove in the microwave for 2 minutes and it’s done! I would definitely advise putting it on a plate as it probably will bubble over the top of the mug! I added a scoop of vanilla ice cream and ate it straight away, while it was still all warm and melty. Yum!
Apart from my incredibly exciting brownie making experience, this week has been fairly standard and I’ve been busy getting on with uni stuff. One of my essay deadlines has been moved from next week to April 11th which is THE BEST NEWS EVER as I have done very little work for it so far! I’m so glad I’ll have an extra month to work on it, however it does mean that I’ll be finished two weeks later than planned. Swings and roundabouts, eh? I’m quite looking forward to having a wee break, and I think I’ll go home for a couple of weeks to visit the family before starting on the horror that is my dissertation. Still haven’t chosen a topic yet, oh dear.
Today has been a pretty lazy day so far, I’ve got such a big to-do list but I’m just so unmotivated to do any of it. Sundays are basically not a real day though, so I’m allowed to lie in bed and watch films all day, right?
What have you been up to this week?
