    About this recipe: A really quick and easy microwave brownie recipe. The best one I've even tried, with hardly any washing up!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 10 

    • 120g butter
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • 100g flour

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Extra time:10min cooling  ›  Ready in:28min 

    1. Prepare a microwave safe, non-metallic tray by spraying it with cooking oil and ensuring it is fully coated.
    2. Weigh out the butter into a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave on low.
    3. Add the sugar, the cocoa powder, and then the vanilla extract and mix well.
    4. Add each egg, one at a time, and mix in well after each. Stir in the flour and ensure it is all incorporated.
    5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tray and spread to the edges. Place in the microwave on high for 5 minutes. Then check it, it will probably need around 3 more minutes but keep an eye on it. It will be ready when it starts to shrink away from the edges. In the centre there may be a spot which looks uncooked but the mixture continues to cook while cooling so this will soon disappear.
    6. Leave to cool completely and then cut in the tray. Transfer to a serving plate and tuck in!

    Tip

    Add chocolate chips or chopped chocolate for double chocolate brownies. Alternatively add nuts for a crunchy texture.

    This is a cheap and easy recipe to follow. the brownies tasted like chocolate fudge and cake. I did not have any plain flour so I used self raisng instead. - 13 Mar 2011

    I was impressed by the speed and ease that this can be made with ingredients you'll have in the cupboards! Its more of a heavy sponge than a brownie but still very enjoyable! - 04 Apr 2011
