Microwave Eggfree Gooey Brownie for those moments of ‘I WANT IT NOW’ chocolate craving….with a drizzle of Chocolate Syrup. If you have a husband like mine who is a chocolate addict, then this is a quick fix that can be prepared in about 5 minutes. I’ve never baked anything in a microwave. I use microwave oven for reheating food and making tea. But this ‘Chocolate’ delight came out cooked/baked well like the regular brownies.
Adapted from Art of Dessert
Serves 2 ( I got just a bite of the brownie, it’s good enough for brownie lovers)
2 tablespoons All purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened Cocoa powder
2 tablespoons Milk or Water
2 tablespoons bittersweet Chocolate chips * I used Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet
2-3 tablespoons Sugar
4 teaspoons unsalted Butter (melted)
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla extract
a pinch of Salt
Chocolate syrup to drizzle * I used Hersheys chocolate syrup cos that’s what I had at home.
In a small microwaveable bowl or ramekin, mix together the melted butter, milk/ water and vanilla extract.
Add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate chips and salt. Mix till combined.
Microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 minutes. Cool for 1 to 2 minutes.
Serve immediately. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
You may top the brownies with chocolate ganache . This will taste heavenly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I don’t keep ice cream in my freezer as I can finish a tub in one go. So I drizzled with chocolate syrup. There it was, the ‘Food of Gods’ right out of the microwave. Yummy! It was Chocolate Heaven!!
* I reduced the amount of sugar as the chocolate syrup used was quite sweet. The sweetness of the syrup and the unsweetened cocoa powder plus bittersweet chocolate chips balanced out.
