Student’s Cheat: Brownie-in-a-mug



It’s always a sad time for a student, when the loan doesn’t come through and you find yourself eating tinned food. I do have to admit, this isn’t my own recipe, but it’s definitely worth sharing! No more blue student days.


1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup flour

2 tbsps cocoa

Pinch of salt

3 tbsps of 100% Natural Spring Water (I used normal bottled water…student, remember?)

2 tbsps olive oil

Ice-cream (optional)


Add all the dry ingredients (i.e. flour, sugar, salt and cocoa) into a mug. Add in the olive oil and water, and mix until the ingredients are well combined. Put it in the microwave and cook for 1 minute and 40 seconds…and voila! Add ice-cream, if you would like, and enjoy your warm, quick brownie!
