I’m so excited to be guest posting here at The Dwelling Tree today! I’ve had the privilege of working with Tiffany recently and she is just the best. One of these days I’ll actually be able to meet her in person!
I’m Alli and I’m the blogger behind Cupcake Diaries. I love to cook, bake, throw parties, and tell all about it! I’m a mom of two young boys so my recipes tend to be quick, easy, and family-friendly. I love being the hostess and sharing my culinary creations with others. You can connect with me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Bloglovin’, Google+, and Instagram!
I am known for making desserts. But my desserts are not exactly low in calories! I decided to change that one day and make a delicious, chocolatey dessert that tastes like it has all the sugary goodness packed in and perfect size for just me. Yes, I did throw some ice cream on top! I couldn’t resist! But this brownie cake really didn’t need it! It’s super moist and has just the right amount of sweetness. And did I mention you cook it in the microwave??? It’s an ideal dessert! Low cal, chocolatey, and fast.
Low Cal Single-Serving Brownie Cake
1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp. cocoa powder
3 Tbsp flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp almond milk (or cow’s milk)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
3 packets Nectresse sugar substitute
1 Tbsp applesauce
Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. I’m talking SUPER well or you’ll get a bitter aftertaste in your brownie cake. Combine the liquids in another bowl and add to the dry mixture. Grease a ramekin if you want to eat your brownie cake on a plate. Or you can eat it right out of the ramekin or out of a coffee mug.
Pour into the ramekin or coffee mug and place in the microwave for 45 seconds to a minute. Eat while it’s nice and warm. Enjoy!
