How To Make 5 Minute Microwave Brownie Pudding
Delicious Chocolate Brownie Pudding - Ready in 15 Minutes
This recipe is so simple that I just had to share it.
I was desperate for ideas for a dessert a few weeks ago and came upon a recipe for microwaved brownies.
Now I will be honest, I am not a huge brownie fan myself but I do like a nice chocolate pudding with some cream.
I adapted this brownie recipe to create a 5 minute microwave chocolate brownie recipe which can be eaten as a pudding.
It has snowed this week in my part of England and this hot dessert went down a treat last night and best of all from getting the ingredients out of your cupboard and fridge, weighing out and being ready to eat only takes 15 minutes.
I hope you will give it a try - decadent, gooey, yummy!
5 Minute Microwave Brownie Pudding Ingredients
- 70g Plain Flour, Sieved/Sifted
- 200g Caster Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
- 2 Eggs
- 150g Butter, Melted
- 65g Cocoa Powder
- Chocolate chips or Dark chocolate, chopped if using slab chocolate
5 Minute Microwave Brownie Pudding Method...
- Melt your butter in the microwave in a large mixing bowl
- Into the melted butter, add sugar, stir well until all combined
- Add vanilla essence and stir
- Add the cocoa, no need to sift, stir well.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking gently after adding each one. Ensure eggs are thoroughly combined.
- Sift in the flour and combine thoroughly.
- Mix in about two thirds of the chocolate chunks or pieces and stir well.
- Pour the Brownie mixture into a microwavable bowl - I I use a round bowl because we eat it like a 'pudding' but for brownie slices, use a shallow square or rectangular dish. Place the remaining third of the chocolate on top of the batter, press in slightly with the back of a spoon.
- Cook Brownie mixture in microwave for 4-5 minutes. I check mine after 4 with a skewer, ensure you hit an area of brownie mix not studded with chocolate! If it needs more time, allow another minute at most. Brownie Pudding will continue to cook for a little while after it has come out of the microwave so it will never need more that 5 minutes.
- I have found that the consistency is better after a night in the fridge but hey, it's brownies, if you want to eat them straight away with ice cream, cream or custard who am I to stop you!
Nutritional Value - Yeah, right!
You may notice that I have not included the 'nutritional value' for this 5 Minute Microwave Brownie Recipe.
I don't think you eat brownies for their nutrition, you eat them in a moment of decadence and because they are chocolatey, sweet, gooey and yummy.
That said, if you want a slightly more nutritious version - cut the sugar content in half and use finely chopped pitted dates instead (soak them in a little boiling water to make them soft) for the extra sweetness - still very tasty!
Happy eating. Many thanks for reading.
