Recipe Notes

* Your cooking time may vary on the strength of your microwave. If you're making a half serving of this mug brownie recipe, I recommend starting with 45 seconds in the microwave followed by 15 second increments until it appears done.

* For a full serving, 1 minute and 10 seconds was perfect. The top looked a little underdone but was totally cooked throughout.

* The mug brownie has no eggs so is theoretically safe to eat as batter, although I don't recommend it.
