Unhelpful Recipes: Need sugar now! Rawwrrr

I moved to a new place on the weekend. It was the worst. The moving part, I mean. The place itself is pretty great if you can see past the piles of half unpacked boxes.

After four days of mostly non-stop cleaning/packing/unpacking/organizing, I was ready to kill for something sweet and comforting. Of course, my fridge was empty of anything that might satiate my cravings. So, I unpacked by baking box and worked some of the ol’ magic of desperation.

Chocolate Somethings

1. In a medium sized bowl mix the following:

  • a couple scoops of flour
  • a scoop of cocoa powder
  • a couple spoonfuls of sugar
  • a spoonful of baking powder

2. Once the dry ingredients are combined, pour in a splash of oil.

3. Beat in an egg.

4. Add a splash of water and mix until most of the big lumps are out.

It ends up being close to the consistency of brownie batter.

5. Pour into a muffin pan.

Four seemed to be enough for this experiment.

6. I had some coconut so I sprinkled some on top. This is optional, I guess.

7. Bake at 350 for around twenty minutes. Bounce test it to be sure.

The result was pretty edible. It was a bit like a cakey chocolate doughnut.

Would I serve it to the Queen? It depends on which queen, I guess. But probably not.

Would I serve it to my friends? Mostly no.

Would I make it again? In a moment of desperation, absolutely.
