Warm Brownie Cup at La Marea

I decided to drop by at La Marea after a sad and disappointing breakfast experience today (I'll share that on another post). Nothing like a good solid dessert and friendly faces to turn that around and make your day better!

Sure, La Marea sells an assortment of amazing desserts from cakes, cupcakes, cookies to crumbles, mochi ice cream and tiramisu but it's really their popular BROWNIE CUPS that put them on the map.  


My husband and I are big fans of this indulgent, chocolate quick fix. Warm brownie and a scoop of cold ice cream are just so AWESOME together! It's fudgy, chewy plus it comes in a single serving cup which is great for those who have no self control when it comes to desserts like myself

Do you know how ridiculously EASY it is to make this "Microwave or Mug Brownie" even a 6 yr old could probably do it? What's great about this recipe is that it's EGG-LESS which means you can prepare it ahead of time and put it in the fridge until you are ready to microwave it. It only takes a few basic ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, oil, milk or water and sugar). Mix it all up in a microwave-safe cup or bowl. Zap it for two minutes. Add a gigantic scoop of your favorite ice cream and voila! 

Grab a spoon and DIG IN!

La Marea also offers other fun variations of the brownie cup. Think Blueberry Cheescake, Triple Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Yema, Apple Crumble, Tsokolate. Not feeling the brownie cups? No worries. Check out the other yummy desserts. 

So what are you waiting for? Get off your butt and make your way over to La Marea for the ultimate brownie cup experience. Trust me. You'll be so glad you did!  :)
