Between needing them to be gluten-free and not having much kitchen stuff at the moment, here’s what I’m doing:
step 1: get a brownie mix! one that works with your dietary restrictions, obv.
step 2: In a LARGE mug, mix together:
- 2 tablespoons light oil (NOT olive oil. & if you’re using butter or margarine, put it in the mug first and melt it before adding the rest!) - 4-5 tablespoons brownie mix - 2 tablespoons water (or milk, or milk substitute) - 1 egg (if you’re leaving this off, add a bit more oil and expect fudgy brownies)
- optionally, a pinch of flavoring (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, cayenne, ginger? NOT ALL TOGETHER THOUGH) -also optionally, extra choclit chips or nuts etc
step 3: when it’s thoroughly mixed, stick in the microwave for… well 4 minutes for me. You’ll have to figure the timing out based on yr microwave and how done you want it.
Imagine a scenario where Deadpool fights off these guys who invaded his apartment then all the sudden there’s a dinging sound from the kitchen and Deadpool excuses himself and comes back out with a mug brownie and proceeds to eat it. Confused and hungry, the invaders run off
2TS of melted butter 2TS of milk 2TS of cocoa powder (unsweetened) 4TS of white/castor sugar 4TS of flour A dash of salt A bit of vanilla or caramel essence (I always choose caramel cause I personally don’t enjoy vanilla a lot)
Mix well in a mug. Put it 60 seconds in your microwave, and enjoy!
This was floating around the internet before, and I don’t actually remember the ratio, but basically mix (I use my hand cause it’s fun and then I have fewer dishes) greek yogurt (avoid flavored unless you’re feeling experimental) and flour in a sort of 1:1 ratio and then add more of whichever you don’t have enough of to make it dough-y!
2. Mug Brownie:
Mix 4 tbs flour, 4 tbs sugar, 2 tbs cocoa powder, 2 tbs oil (olive may be too strongly flavored, i dunno, I’ve been using avocado oil), and 2 tbs water. In a mug. Then microwave for 40 seconds (ish, that’s what works for my microwave to make basically hot fudge, which is my preferred consistency).
Since basically all of you who follow me are college students/grad students/living-on-your-own-non-students, I thought you may benefit from these. Yes, they both float around the internet a lot (sorry, I didn’t save the sources for either of these), but they float with a bajillion other things that I bookmark and say “Yeah! I’ll totally make that!” and haven’t looked at in a year. But these ones I actually make! All the time!
By the way, if anyone has an easy vegan pizza dough recipe, that would be even cooler. I just like that I just have to buy one thing at the grocery store (cause I always have flour on hand) when I want pizza.
4 Tablespoons Flour 4 Tablespoons Sugar 2 Tablespoons Cocoa powder (Note: don’t use cocoa mix or quik, it shouldn’t have any sugar) 2 Tablepsoons Vegetable Oil (Don’t use one with a strong flavor, eg olive, sesame, etc) 2 Tablespoons Water Dash of salt
You may want to add a little milk, or increase one of the liquids, it should look tasty as it goes into the microwave! Gooey is best.
Mix all the dry ingredients (I mix in a bowl first, it’s easier), mix in the oil and water (and milk if wanted)
Whack in the microwave for 1 minute (Depends on how hot your microwave is)
sup nerds i decided to collide all of the masterposts and masterposts of masterposts into one giant ass masterpost because why the fuck not here we goooo (EDIT: Some of the links didn’t work, so i had to link them to the post on my blog!!)
[cont. because I have no control] Taako has to tell them thrice that the cake is for Kravitz who's gonna drop by in like four minutes, and he's just worked like 12 hours straight and is gonna be real tired and surely in need of some snacks, but Magnus' stomach is growling rly loudly and Taako sighs dramatically and whips up two mug brownies. "just this once, fellas," he says when he leaves, but he's definitely smiling. he says that every time.
Me: *has recently become tomco trash but is shit at drawing guys and slightly less shit at drawing girls*
Me: Yo lets genderbend this shit.
Headcanon: When Fem!Tom quits trying to win her ex back, M!Star tries to get her to be friends with other people and Fem!Marco was the first on his list, so he suggests a sleepover. Tom is reluctant, but Marco, having never been to or had a slumber party before, is excited, so she makes a long list of slumber party shenanigans (truth or dare, pillow fight, maybe crying; I see that sometimes) that they could do. It’s a bit awkward at first, but eventually Tom opens up and then starts to share the excitement. Midway, Marco ends up discarding the list and they just do what they feel like doing.
While Marco braids the demon’s hair, she asks why it’s so long. Tom replies with “Star liked long hair”, and a really long conversation about moving on and Tom admitting out loud that she doesn’t like her long hair leads to them cutting most of it off.
(Tom is ecstatic; she keeps running her fingers through her newly cut hair and they both jump and squeal and make mug brownies and TOM FALLS IN LOVE WITH MARCO the end uwu lets pretend that the blood moon ball didn’t happen. Or hasn’t happened yet)
Summary: You come home to your favorite sweets and your loving girlfriend
AN: Eliza is too precious I love her.
Warnings: Fluff, Eliza being adorable; drabble
Entering your home the first thing you noticed was the smell of brownies. You followed the scent all the way to your kitchen where your absolutely amazing and adorable girlfriend was at taking brownies out of the oven.
“They smell amazing.” You commented as your girlfriend jumped in surprise her eyes wide. The look on her face was adorable.
“Oh, Y/N your home early.” Her voice was soft and shy almost sounding embarrassed. You chuckled walking over to her.
“These are for you.” You told her handing her a small bouquet of roses. She smiled happily taking them from you.
“Oh Y/N these are beautiful!” Eliza gushed, as she searched for a vase to put them in.
“Not as beautiful as you darling.” You grinned at her. Her cheeks flamed in color as you said that.
“Oh stop it.” She covered the one side of her face with her hand, hiding her blush from you. Eliza set the flowers into a blue vase before filling it with water from the sink as you wandering over to the brownies.
“They smell delicious.” You commented grabbing a knife.
Eliza saw what you were doing and scolded you for it.
“Shoo.” She stood now beside you. Grinning, you quickly kissed her cheek before moving away to the cupboard.
“I’ll make tea.” You stated, pulling out chamomile tea.
“I’m going to the bathroom real quick, don’t eat the brownies.” Eliza told you as she left the room leaving you time to make tea.
When she got back you had two mugs out filled with tea. Eliza smiled, picking up a mug. Arms wrapped around her as she took a sip. She sighed content practically melting in your arms.
“Brownies?” You asked hopeful. She chuckled setting her mug down.
“Brownies.” You didn’t hesitate to cut the brownies into perfect squares before giving Eliza a corner piece her favorite part as well as yours. Taking a corner piece of your own you happily bit into it.
“These are delicious.” You commented. Eliza smiled at you as she ate hers.
“Thank you.” She whispered grabbing your hand. Looking up at her you couldn’t help but smile. Her hand hovered over her mouth as she giggled. You looked at her confused. “You’re too cute.” Your smile turned smaller as you blushed causing her to lightly squeeze your hand.
I had a day like this yesterday, and so I had to think of a way to magic myself out. This is what came out.
Step One: Make a brownie-inna-mug, or some other food item that is comforting and safe for you.
I suggest brownie-inna-mug for a couple reasons: It takes a few steps to make, but not so many you get overwhelmed if you’re low-spoons. Even if you fuck it up, it’s still pretty edible. And, of course, you can stick a candle in it.
Step Two: Get a birthday cake candle. Stick it in your food of choice.
Step Three: Recite an incantation of your choosing. Mine goes something like this:
“I am a good person. I deserve to be okay. Just because today sucks ass doesn’t negate that. I am powerful and kickass and can get through this.”
Step Four: Blow out the candle. Eat the brownie. Hopefully, feel a little better.
