Microwave Brownies

Have you ever just NEEDED something sweet AND chocolate but couldn't find anything in the cupboard or fridge? I was in this predicament a week ago and since it is so hot and humid this time of year (most days lately it's 94% humidity), there was no way I was going to fire up the oven. So I searched for something I could make in the microwave. I have tons of unsweetened chocolate, and just biting off a chunk is not that satisfying. In my search, I went to my favorite website, and found a recipe for Microwave Brownies. I have made it 3 times and it comes out perfect each time. So, I want to share this with my 'chocoholic' readers. 
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Put the butter and chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds to melt the chocolate. Set aside. 

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. 

In a large bowl sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Add the egg and chocolate mixtures along with the vanilla and stir well to combine. 

Spray an 8 by 8 by 2-inch or 8-inch round microwave-safe glass pan with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the pan, spread it out evenly, and scatter the chocolate chips on top. Cook on high for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 3 minutes before cutting and eating.
(Mine comes out perfect each time at 5 minutes)
