Egg-Free Microwave less than 5 minutes!

Quick Fix Egg-Free Microwave Brownie

Okay. I have my moments when I'm really REALLY craving for a chocolate brownie topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and I don't want to wait.  I don't want to preheat, measure, mix, pour, bake and then cool.  It's been a long crazy day, I'm dead tired and all I want is a warm gooey brownie and I want it NOW!
Well, thank goodness I have my microwave brownie to the rescue.  Sometimes I mix together the dry ingredients in a Ziploc bag and store it in my cupboard for emergencies.  Then, all I have to do is add the wet ingredients, zap it in the microwave for a minute and voila! Aaaaaaahhhh....CHOCOLATE HEAVEN :-)

empty bowl

Egg-Free Microwave Brownie
Makes one serving
Allergy Note: contains wheat and dairy ingredients

2 Tbs. melted butter or allowed margarine
2-3 Tbs. milk or water *
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
4 Tbs. sugar
2 Tbs. cocoa powder*
2-3 Tbs. flour
2 Tbs. semisweet chocolate chips
pinch of salt

*For a rich fudgy brownie, use 2 Tbs. milk and 2 Tbs. flour.
For a cakey brownie, use 3 Tbs. milk and 3 Tbs. flour.

For vegan alternatives: use vegetable oil instead of butter and instead of regular chocolate chips, you can use Enjoy Life or Chocolate Dream brand chocolate chips. You can use Rice Dream ice cream instead of vanilla ice cream or top with strawberries or bananas.

In a small microwaveable bowl, mix together the melted butter, milk and vanilla extract. Add the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, chocolate chips and salt. Mix till combined. Microwave on HIGH for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.  Allow to cool for 1 to 2 minutes. Top with a scoop of ice cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup.

This really sounds like chocolate heaven and its unbelievably quick!! About what size bowl would be right and how many servings would this make? (i know, I can eat it all by myself, just trying to appear to be otherwise;-)

Ahhh! You're a genius! I soooo want one NOW!

Hi Suma! This makes one serving (well, at least for me - haha), but I'm sure it can be shared by two people. I used a small 6 oz. serving bowl to mix and microwave the brownie :-)

Looks like a good Christmas give-away. Just put it in a nice bottle and paste on instructions for milk, butter and vanilla :)

Art of Dessert said...

That's a cool idea! Maybe even put a funny label on it like "OPEN IN CASE OF EMERGENCY" :-)

Anne said...

love this idea...this would definitely be useful for me :))

This is amazing! I've tried lots of recipes of that kind but they all turned out really dry and "boring".
And this one doesn't even require eggs! yay! :)

This is scarily good!!! As a Mom of 3 who is allergic to eggs, but has serious sweet tooth, I'm always on the look out 4 easy egg free receipes & this one is awesome!!! I have to say, when I was mixing it together there were some doubters in my kitchen, but 5 mins after putting it in the microwave there were 4 dirty spoons and 1 empty bowl! It was a BIG hit - thanks 4 sharing!

Saloni said...

I just made this. It was prefect and delicious.

Rebecca Heron said...

I love this sooo much! Made the dry ingredients into a mix to be gifted as well! Such a perfect idea!

Yup this did the trick. I didn't have any semi-sweet chips, just white chocolate which that worked just fine. I just wish they didn't all settle at the bottom, but my spoon reaches there too :) Thanks for this!

What about almond milk and coconut oil substituted for milk & butter?
Especially curious about whether almond milk will work even with butter.

Domo's Mom said...

I actually made this a few minutes ago. I'm slowly getting into the vegan diet so I used earth balance vegan butter for the butter and almond milk instead of regular milk.I also ran out of cocoa powder so I just upped the vanilla and made a blondie instead of a brownie. Very quick and tasty. I topped mine with a chocolate chip cookie and a small dollop of ice cream.

This is great in a pinch. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.
I think I'll try it with some dark chocolate chips next time around.
