Microwave Brownies

Microwave Brownies
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • Confectioners sugar

Place the butter and chocolate in a 2-cup glass measure. Cook the mixture on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until the butter is melted. (The chocolate will not appear melted until it is stirred.)

Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla, and salt; blend well. Stir the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture. Stir in the nuts.

Pour the batter into a 9-inch square microproof baking dish. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. (The brownies will be moist but will become firm as they cool.) Sprinkle with confectioners sugar. Cool before cutting into squares.
