About Brownie:

chocolate brownie is a flat, baked square or bar developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century and popularized in both the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the 20th century. The brownie is a cross between a cake and a cookie in texture.Brownies come in a variety of forms. They are either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density, and they may include nuts, frosting,whipped creamchocolate chips, or other ingredients. A variation that is made with brown sugar and no chocolate is called a blondie.
Brownies are common lunchbox fare, typically eaten by hand, and often accompanied by milk or coffee. They are sometimes served warm with ice cream (à la mode), topped with whipped cream or marzipan, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. They are especially popular in restaurants, where they can be found in variation on many dessert menus.

Myths About Creation:

There are three main myths about the creation of the brownie. The first, that a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. The second, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And thirdly, the most popular belief, that a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to serve these flattened cakes to them. All three myths have gained popularity throughout the years.

Tips:


1.My Microwave is 1000 watt power , i baked it for 2 min,but for first time you can start checking every 30 min for the brownie timing.

2.Some mugs don't microwave well because there is metal in their ceramic glaze. They'll work but they may get very hot. Best to use a plain old everyday un-fancy mug.

3.Don't use flavored oil,as this will affect the taste of brownie.

4.Instead of coffee powder you can also use cinnamon powder,its according to preference.

5.Use only instant coffee powder.

6.You can also try this with Sugar free if you are diabetic.
