Six minutes and a cookie

We all know that the Internet is an endless source of knowledge, but it still amazes me. And today, walking along a few websites looking for a perfect lemon cake recipe (then I've remembered that I have a good one from the Primrose Bakery book that I'm sure it will work perfectly), I have found this: Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup. The first thing I thought has been: "I have to try it and see if it works".

And yes. It works.

It doesn't have "buts": Not one at all. really. It's a fast, simple, clean and, the most important, delicious.

Well, there's one "but". But it doesn't count. As the cup is very deep, photos don't look as good as I would like. But you don't really care about that, do you?


  • 15 gr (1 tablespoon) of butter
  • 15 gr (1 tablespoon) of white sugar
  • 15 gr (1 tablespoon) of brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 28 gr (a little less than 1/4 cup) of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips
You only need a cup for everything (mix the ingredients, bake and eat). It's all about add and mix.

In the microwave, melt for 20 seconds the butter. Then add the sugars and the vanilla extract and mix. Add the egg yolk and mix. Then add the flour, mix, and finally add the chocolate chips and stir until are mixed with the dough.

Put the cup in the microwave and heat for 60 seconds (800W power)

And that's all.

Let cold until its warm and enjoy.
