Single Serve Cookie


It’s winter, some nights it’s just so cold and miserable that you crave comfort food but you don’t have the time (or can’t be bothered leaving your warm comfy spot on the couch) to make and then wait for something like a delicious batch of cookies to bake.  What if I told you that I had a solution? That you could be enjoying warm delicious cookie in under three minutes!?  This recipe is for a single serve cookie that you make in the microwave.  I hope you enjoy this little treat for one as much as me!  I have to thank Facebook for this idea, there was a picture with a recipe similar to below floating around but no instructions so I had a little play and this is what I came up with…

25 grams of butter, melted
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
pinch of salt
⅛ teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg yolk
¼ cup flour
2 tablespoons of chocolate drops

Melt butter in ramekin (bowl or cup).
Add sugars, salt, vanilla, egg yolk and flour to melted butter and combine using a large spoon.
Stir the chocolate drops through evenly.
Place ramekin in the microwave for 50 seconds.  Check it, then continue cooking and checking for up to 1 minute 20 seconds depending on wattage (I did mine for 1 minute 10 seconds in a 1000W microwave).
Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before digging in!


It’s that easy and so, so quick!  I think this would also be fabulous with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delectable dessert, go on – spoil yourself, I know you want to.  Remember if you try this or any of our other yummy recipes you can leave a comment and let us know what you think.  We also love to see your photos – you can email them to bmtbblog@gmail.com or facebook us.
