Mama's Secret Cinnamon Mug Brownie

Print Recipe

Growing up, our mom made a mean batch of brownies. We loved the gooey warm dessert straight out of the oven and served hot with vanilla ice cream.

When it was my turn to inherit her recipe book, she passed on a secret, second brownie recipe - one she only made for herself.

In one minute, you can enjoy Mama's warm cinnamon brownies all to yourself - no sharing, unless you want to!
