Microwave Brownies

Submitted by: ANAJAK

Introduction

Looking after my sister, her newborn and two toddlers and the oven died. Microwave baking is what we have resorted to!! Looking after my sister, her newborn and two toddlers and the oven died. Microwave baking is what we have resorted to!!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/2 cup canola oil, or other unflavoured oil
    2 large eggs
    1 cup sugar
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup self-raising flour
    1/2 cup plain flour
    1/4 cup cocoa

Directions

Measure oil, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt into a medium sized bowl and beat with a fork.

Measure flours and cocoa and sift into bowl of wet ingredients. Fold until combined.

Line a 20 cm square or 21 x 15cm rectangular microwave dish with straight sides at least 6cm high with a piece of cling film. Pour in mixture and spread evenly. Cover with non-stick liner or baking paper. (Covering is important for even rising and baking).

Stand the dish on an inverted plate so it is at lest 1 cm above cooking surface. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 4-7 minutes, checking every minute after 4 minutes. Do not worry if the surface looks rather uneven, but don't take the brownies out of the microwave until they are dry on top. Cool in container, then turn out.

  • I must have overcooked them because they were a little dry, and I would add more cocoa next time because they weren't very chocolaty. I used applesauce instead of oil to reduce calories and added chopped up caramello to cancel out the reduced calories - 9/29/10
