Microwave Chocolate Brownies


This recipe is very quick and easy and makes nice moist brownies with a strong sweet chocolate taste.




20 minutes

8 servings


  • 150g butter

  • 200g sugar

  • 70g cocoa powder

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 100g plain flour


  1. Unless the butter is already very soft it should be microwaved until it is (maybe 30-40 seconds), the idea is to soften or even melt it but not to cook it.

  2. Add the softened butter to a mixing bowl

  3. Add in the sugar and mix

  4. Add in the cocoa powder and mix

  5. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly

  6. Add in the flour and mix until smooth

  7. Spoon into a greased microwave-proof dish, mine was 180 x 130mm and 50mm deep

  8. Microwave until cooked, my machine is 700w and it took 5 minutes. Note that the brownies will still be soft in the centre as the residual heat will continue to cook them after they have been removed from the microwave

  9. Allow to stand for 15 minutes before cutting into indivudual brownies

Tip: These store well in the fridge and are great served warm with ice cream.
