In this recipe we offer a small and tasty "invention" that will be an absolute delight to anybody with a sweet tooth! What is it? A fabulous ‘brownie in a cup’, to be served with a nice scoop of ice cream in the middle. Making this dessert honestly takes less than five minutes ..... In short, a dessert that is no sooner said than done! It is really delicious and is perfect for those times when you suddenly have your children’s friends visiting (and not just one, but a crowd of them!). You want to offer something special at the last minute ... and who doesn’t have some cocoa powder and flour in their store cupboard? If you don’t have any ice cream you can serve them without, or replace it with whipped cream. Here’s the recipe: you only need to prepare the flour, cocoa, sugar, oil and a little water. And to complete, vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Pour all the dry ingredients into a cup, then add the oil and the water. Stir vigorously with a spoon until the mixture is thick but not overly so (if necessary add more water). Put in the microwave at medium power for 2 minutes. Add a scoop of ice cream of your preferred flavour.
Mix vigorously with a teaspoon until you have a thick mixture but not overly so (add a little more water if necessary)
