Yummy Microwave Brownies

Someone stopping over and no real time to make a desert to serve? Problem solved! I friend shared this with me (thank you, Kathy) and think they are good and great for the kids to whip up for an afternoon or weekend snack.

They would be easy enough to switch over if usig all purposeglute free flour for the regular flour, casin free butter, gluten free vanilla and egg sustitute could easily be used as well. See one you get the hang of gf/cf cooking making substitutions is pretty simple! :0)

I do not use sugar. I use splenda and a 1/3 of what is called for otherwise it is way too sweet.

Microwave Brownies

non-stick cooking spray
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled a bit
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Spray the inside of an 8×8 glass baking dish.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder and flour.
In a larger bowl, whisk together the cooled butter, eggs, and vanilla. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet with a wooden spoon.
Scrape the batter into the baking dish. Microwave 4-7 minutes on high, just until the brownies are “done” in the middle.
Let the brownies cook on a rack 5-10 minutes, then cut into squares and eat.
