MY OWN photos...baked today 3/10/2012
brown sugar, firmly packed
egg yolk (from small eggs)
several drops of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
flour, (a "scant" 1/4 cup)
ice cream, whipping cream and cherries (optional)
1In a coffee cup add 1 tablespoon of butter and melt in microwave (about 20 seconds)..remove from microwave and add; white sugar, brown sugar, several drops of vanilla extract and stir until blended well...add egg yolk, stir again, then add the scant 1/4 cup of flour and salt, stir one more time before adding the 2 T. of chocolate chips and stir one last time. YOU MUST DO IT IN THIS ORDER...or it won't turn out right. (trust me I know..I did it my way, and oh brother what a mess...directions are for a reason...learned my lesson..lol!)~Picture to the left is the melted butter..before adding other ingredients.
2Microwave for 50-60 seconds..if using a large base cup then 50 seconds, if using a shallow deep cup then 60 seconds.
~Picture to the left is of the batter once you add all the other ingredients except the chocolate chips..which you add right after blending as shown in the cup.
3REmove from Microwave and cool for a couple of minutes....eat immediately, or add vanilla ice cream to the mug with chocolate syrup or whipping cream and a cherry on top.
4I ate mine after about 2 minutes out of the microwave plain..it was soft, yet it was amazing..as I ate it and it started cooling it got the crunch just like a baked chocolate chip cookie ( I have a picture of a spoonful of the cooled crunchy cookie on it, below the main picture)...What a great find, I will do this again and again...it is that good!
