Microwave chocolate chip cookie in a cup

Anyone who knows my cooking, knows that I suck baking, so imagine my delight when I found this recipe on the interwebs when I googled "microwave cookie in a cup" and found this little gem. I can't remember where I found the recipe but I'm very grateful for it. If you do want to find the source, just google it. :-)

I have to admit to being somewhat dubious about the efficacy of this recipe but then again I also know nothing about baking.

I won't blather on much more because there really isn't much to say about this little recipe besides the fact that it's quick to make and very tasty. I like that it's a small single serve cookie and I think it would also be great as a dessert, warm right out of the microwave and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Without further ado, here's the RECIPE:

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Granulated White Sugar (caster sugar)
  • 1 Tablespoon of firmly packed Dark Brown Sugar
  • 3 Drops of Vanilla Extract
  • Small Pinch of Kosher Salt
  • 1 Egg Yolk (discard the egg white)
  • 1/4 cup of All Purpose Flour (plain flour)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

  • Start by melting your butter in the microwave.
  • Add sugars, vanilla and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Separate your egg and add the yolk only to your cup. Stir to combine.
  • Add flour, then stir again.
  • Add the chocolate chips, and give a final stir.
  • Cook in microwave 40-60 seconds, start checking for done-ness at 40 seconds.
  • Mine takes 60 seconds in a 1000W microwave.

Just for the record, this *is* baking, so I didn't vary the recipe ... sort of. I didn't have any granulated white sugar, so I used raw sugar instead. The cookie came out a little crunchy from that, I thought.

I did think it was a little sweet for my taste but then I think you can adjust the sweetness to taste by adding more or less sugar according to what you like.
