Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs until light (about 1 minute on high).
  2. Beat in sugar and salt. Add the vanilla. Mix in the melted butter.
  3. Add the cocoa and flour using the low speed on mixer.
  4. Pour into a microwave safe dish (8 x8 or a round cake pan -- your microwave time will depend on what you use.).
  5. Microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes on a turntable, preferably. Do not let the center get totally dry or it will be overcooked. I took mine out when there was just a small moist spot in the center, but next time I will probably let it bake for maybe 10 seconds less. It finishes cooking as it cools.
  6. You can frost if you like, but I prefer my brownies unfrosted.
