Microwave Brownies Recipe

When I need to make a treat on a moment's notice, this is the recipe I reach for. The brownies cook up quickly in the microwave.—Marie Peart, Hagersville, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 10 min. YIELD:9-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, beat sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt on medium speed for 1 minute. Add butter; beat until blended. Combine flour and cocoa. Gradually add to sugar mixture; mix well. Stir in walnuts. Transfer to a greased microwave-safe 8-in. square dish. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3-4 minutes, rotating every 1 minute or until a moist area about 1-1/4 in. in diameter remains in the center (when touched, brownie will cling to your finger while area underneath will be almost dry). Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 9-12 brownies.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
