Microwave Brownies


I found this recipe at MyRecipes.com. It’s really Delish! I added a sprinkling of flaked sea salt just before baking the brownies. Love that sweet chocolate and salty flavor.

If you’re looking for a recipe to make with young children, this works well!

These chocolate brownies have a true chocolate flavor and are a quick easy sweet fix! I made 1 1/2 recipes because I only had a 7×11 inch glass baking pan which is slightly larger than the 8×8 inch dish used in this recipe.  If you want to make a 9×13 pan I would double the recipe.

It’s a forgiving recipe. Just don’t over bake them. Brownies firm up and harden as they cool. They will be very moist when they’re done.

When making larger recipes add on 2 minutes of cooking time and then check them every 15 seconds. Add on more time as needed

1/4 pound/1 stick butter, cut into 8 pieces

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup flour

Flaked sea salt

  • Spray an 8×8 inch glass baking pan with oil
  • In a medium microwaveable bowl combine butter and cocoa powder. 
  • Microwave on high until butter is melted. About 30-90 seconds
  • Remove bowl from microwave
  • Whisk in sugar. Cool slightly
  • Mix in eggs and vanilla
  • Mix in flour just until combined
  • Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth out evenly
  • Sprinkle top with flaked sea salt
  • Microwave on high 4-7 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave
  • Check after 4 minutes for doneness and every 15 seconds after that
  • Don’t over bake
  • Cool and cut into 8 squares
  • Voila!
