Have you ever wanted a brownie but not wanted to make an entire batch? Or maybe you only have a couple of minutes to spare. Maybe it’s in the scorching hot days of summer and you don’t want to make the house any hotter by firing up the oven.
Usually my wife or kids ask for one of these right after dinner and I take it as a challenge to get it done in two minutes, feeling like I’m on the TV show Chopped with only two more minutes left in the dessert round and just decided to make a brownie. This is how you can make a single serving brownie in only two minutes by using a microwave.
The first thing I always do is grab a ramequin or a mug to make the brownie in. I need to start by mixing melted butter with a little milk, salt and vanilla. Since I’m already resigned to using the microwave for this dessert, most of the time I’ll melt the butter in the ramequin using the microwave for about thirty seconds. Next I mix sugar, cocoa powder, and then flour into butter mixture. I make sure it’s mixed really well and nuke it in the microwave for a minute to a minute and a half. When it’s done I’ll sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top.
I like the fact that I don’t need an oven when making these. In fact next time I go on vacation I’ll bring these ingredients so I can make them in the hotel room. This is a very easy recipe that I’ve made for years and my family loves it. It’s not my best brownie recipe, but for something you can whip together during a commercial break I think it’s great.
