Teacup Cake

These little teacup brownie cakes are cooked in the microwave and can be ready in 10 minutes. I die of cuteness.

Teacup Brownie Cakes

3 tablespoons Butter
4 tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
1 Egg
3 tablespoons Milk
dash of pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup unbleached Flour
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
3 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
dash of Salt
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips

1. In a glass measuring cup (2 cup capacity) heat butter in the microwave until it's just melted, but not hot. About 30-40 seconds depending on your microwave.

2. Stir sugar into the melted butter then beat in the egg. Add the milk and dash of vanilla. Mix in cocoa powder and cinnamon. Add flour, stir until incorporated.

3. Pour batter into two small microwave safe cups (at least 4 oz capacity) until each is halfway full. Sprinkle in half of the chocolate chips. Divide the rest of the batter between the cups then tap them lightly on the counter to even out the batter. Arrange the rest of the chocolate chips on top, sprinkle on a little extra cinnamon if you want to get fancy.

4. Microwave the cups, one at a time, in the center of the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. The cakes should rise but still look a little glossy when you take them out. Eat hot.
