    I guess this is for American products, I made it from European ingredients and it is terrible. It's like eating a lump of buttery sugar. I couldn't force down more than two spoonfuls. If you're making this in Europe I would suggest using less butter, maybe 1tbsp and ~3tbsp sugar and adding a little milk with/instead of the water.

    I made this with 3tbsp of flour and slightly less sugar and microwaved for 77 seconds, when it was done, I topped it with heavy cream and powdered sugar! It was slightly cakey and molten and it had a nice decadent dark chocolate flavor! Best snow day treat ever and I've found my mug brownie for now on!
