Microwave Brownies Recipe

-- Advertisements --
The bonus with microwave brownies is obviously the convenience and speed of microwave baking. What normally takes 30 plus minutes in the oven, only take about 7 minutes in the microwave.

The only issue that normally comes up with microwave cooking is the taste, however with cake based desserts this is not the case. The taste of the microwave based cakes are excellent in flavor and will definitely not disappoint your taste buds! 


  • 1/3 of a cup of butter.
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 ounce of semi-sweet chocolate (1/8th of a cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (I like it with walnuts)
  • 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • Ready made frosting, or you can use melted chocolate to give it a nice crust.


  1. Put butter and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high until the chocolate is soft.
  2. Now stir the mixture till melted.
  3. Add sugar and vanilla essence, and stir until combined.
  4. Add only 1 egg and beat into mixture.
  5. Now add the second egg and once again beat into mixture.
  6. Add flour and nuts.  Stir very well, until combined.
  7. Pour completed batter into paper cupcake cups (about 1/4 to 1/3 full).
  8. Now place cups inside a ramekin or some type of dish that will help the paper cups keep its shape. I have used a cup before, and in these instances I only fill the paper cup holders 1/4 of the way
  9. Now microwave 3-4 at a time, on low to medium setting, and set the time for 6 minutes. If your microwave doesn’t have a carousel, then rearrange the at the 3 minute mark.
  10. A toothpick test works to see if the center of the brownie is cooked.  The outsides of the brownie might not look baked, that is normal.
  11. I sometimes skip this step, so its up to you.  Once the brownies are done, place on wire rack and cover with dish or tin foil for 10 minutes.
  12. Spread frosting over finished brownie, or melt more chocolate to pour over cupcake brownie.  The other option is to do nothing and eat as is.  Enjoy!
