Ingredients Required

Brown Sugar – Sugar in any form is unhealthy, but I always use Brown sugar (Demerara Sugar). You may also use granulated sugar or refined sugar.

Plain Flour /Maida 

Cocoa Powder – I love this ingredient and the adoring taste this gives to any recipe.

Baking Powder

Salt – just a pinch, not much

Milk – This is required to make your brownies soft and not chewy.

Oil 

Chocolate chunks – Any kind of chocolate like white, dark, or milk. However, I used milk chocolate chunks. 

How to Make Quick Chocolaty Microwave Chocolate Brownies?

Firstly, you need a mixing bowl. Add all the dry ingredients such as sugar, plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Mix everything well.

Add first milk, mix, then add oil and again mix.

Now, take a microwave-safe rectangular dish, grease it with oil or use parchment paper and pour half of the batter into it. 

After adding half of the microwave brownie batter, spread chocolate chunks above it and then cover it with the remaining batter. Put the dish into the microwave and cook at high temperature for 2 minutes. 

Remember that some microwave models are more powerful than others; therefore, if your brownie is uncooked even after 2 minutes. Put it for another 30 seconds and so on till it thoroughly cooks. 

Let it rest for 5 minutes before cutting brownies.

Storage Instructions for Microwave Brownies

You can keep these microwave brownies in an air-tight container for 2-3 days or a week in the refrigerator. In any case, moisture should be avoided. 

Frequently Asked Questions 

How can I make vegan microwave chocolate brownies?

This recipe doesn’t contain eggs, so it’s easily can be converted into a vegan diet. Instead of using milk, you can use almond milk which is the best flavorless substitute. 

Can I make gluten-free microwave brownie?

Yes, you can use gluten-free flour instead of plain flour. 

What to do if I want to make my brownies cakey and not fudgy?

When you add eggs, baking powder, and baking soda (both), you help your brownies lose moisture. Therefore, it’ll be cakier. But I never tried the cakey brownies recipe in the microwave. So if you like to experiment, you can try the cakey version too. 

How to know if my brownies are cooked?

If brownies crumbs are glossy, it is undercooked, and if it is hard and dark in color, that means it’s thoroughly cooked. 

What if I don’t have chocolate chunks?

You can also use chocolate chips or diced cooking chocolate. I used cooking milk chocolate for this recipe.
