Many of us are living alone, or there are just two in the house. I hate making a big pan of something sweet - as I see it as a challenge. Eat it all or it goes to waste!!!!!! That is not a good thing. I shouldn't eat sweets, but love them now and then.
I got this neat little cookie kit for Christmas and haven't made it yet. It makes one big cookie in a little cast iron pan. They are cute and fun.
Now I am thinking how do I make single cookies in the future. I am thinking making a batch of drop cookies (like choc. chip or oatmeal) and using an ice cream scoop to measure out. Maybe measure out heaping scoops of batter and place on a pan and flash freeze. Bag and pull out one at a time to bake.
Does that sound like a good idea?
This is a perfect size for a big treat or a treat for two. The little pan is a bit bigger than the palm of my hand. (I am holding it in my hand in picture)
BROWNIES FOR ONE
You need a microwave safe mug and a microwave
4 Tbsp. all purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. unsweetened baking cocoa
Dash of salt
2 Tbsp. oil
2 Tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix your dry ingredients together in the mug - then add the wet - mix until blended
Microwave for about 1 minute. Depends on your microwave. (Recommended from 55 seconds to 1 minute 15 seconds). Check every 30 seconds.
Finished brownie will be a bit wet in the center.
Let it cool for about a minute and eat away!
DON'T let it cool too long or it will get super hard and not be as yummy. This is definitely an eat as you make it treat.
My favorite way to make brownies for ONE - make a whole batch and bake in muffin tins. Wrap well and freeze the extra. I can always pull one out and heat up for a fresh brownie fix!
Brownies with a scoop of ice cream! OH YUM
Do you have any yummy treats that can be made for one or two?
