Recipe: Beffy's Brownie In A Mug

Over the last few months our daughter Autumn has been honing her love for cooking and baking. She has a natural affinity for it and has come up with several recipes of her very own. Included among these is one particularly scrumptious and original twist to the familiar brownies-in-a-mug. It is a single serving recipe, perfect for satisfying any individual hankering for freshly baked brownies. Autumn's nickname among friends is Beffy, so she has fittingly dubbed her brownie creation "Beffy's Brownie In A Mug". It is a treat she frequently makes for visiting friends, and on those nights she and I get a chocolate craving. And my darling daughter has been generous enough to grant me permission to share her recipe here!

I love brownies and rarely feel like making a whole batch of them. This is a perfect recipe for me. Many thanks to your lovely daughter, Beffy, and to you, Beth for sharing. I definitely will make this several times throughout the winter - probably year round.

Up, U, A, I and H+

Hi Will! She was taught an alternative recipe for them in culinary class but thought it lacked something, so she re-invented it to her own tastes.
