5 minute brownies that you can make on campus if you carry around baking ingredients in your backpack

We are writing technical instructions for a class and today we had usability testing. I was kind enough to test another group's instructions on microwave brownies, and for real, it was easy and delicious. A brownie from scratch with ingredients that could stay in a locker. Dear printmaking students: You could probably make this on the hot plate in the intaglio room, too, but that is probably also illegal. So easy, I remember the instructions by heart:

In a mug, combine together
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa power
  • dash of salt
Stir in
  • 2 tbsp veg. oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/4 tbsp vanilla
Microwave on high for 1 minute and 15 second. Remove from microwave and allow to finish cooking and cool for 5 minutes. At this time, I suggest purchasing some BYU Creamery milk since you are probably using a microwave just by the vending machine. The top will be a little gooier than the inside. But it is perfect. And, being that it is egg-less, super easy to clean the mug and spoon.

This really works. And tastes delicious. And I don't have a photo, because it tastes better than it looks. And I ate it too quickly.
