Brownie is a versatile desert. You can  serve hot brownie with a dollop of cold vanilla ice-cream. You can drip hot chocolate sauce on it too.

When I bought my first microwave oven, Samsung gave a free cooking class. One of the things they taught there was making Brownie in the microwave. Even though traditionally brownie is made in the oven, I still prefer the ones made in the microwave because it takes lesser time and uses less power.


  1. Semisweet chocolate Bar – 300 gm.
  2. All purpose flour / Maida - 2 cups
  3. Granulated Sugar - 2 cups
  4. Eggs - 3
  5. Baking powder - 2 tsp.
  6. Butter - 1 stick / 125 gm.
  7. Vanilla extract - 2 tsp.
  8. Milk - 3-4 tsp.
  9. Chopped walnut - Half cup


In a bowl combine the flour and baking powder and keep aside.

Break the chocolate bar into pieces. In a microwave safe bowl take the chocolate pieces along with the butter and melt it in microwave on high power. It will take 2-3 mins to melt completely. Stir the chocolate mixture at least once in between. Cool slightly 

In a large bowl beat the sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and milk until fluffy. Blend the chocolate mixture into the sugar mixture and beat until they nicely combine.

Slowly add the flour and baking powder mixture. Fold in chopped walnuts.

Grease a 8x8x4 microwave safe baking dish and transfer the brownie batter into it. Microwave on high for about 10-12 mins. Let it stand inside for another 5 mins.

Take out the baking dish and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Cut into square pieces and enjoy.
