Deadly Microwave Brownie Recipe

Recipe by my friend Amna Shuja

Ever since I had this brownie at my friends’ place, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I craved for it so bad that I asked her the recipe and she was kind enough to share.

I love this recipe because it’s super delicious and is so easy to make. I’m sharing it as I got too many requests after I shared making it on my IG stories. It was really so deadly that I gobbled it all up in a day!! Oops…



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • 2 room temperature eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Mix all dry ingredients well in a mixing bowl
  2. Beat the eggs properly in another bowl
  3. Mix all wet ingredients well with the eggs
  4. Mix dry & wet ingredients together
  5. Put parchment paper & grease it with oil spray in an 8×8 inch pan
  6. Put the batter in the pan
  7. Bake in the microwave for 3 mins and then 30 secs
  8. In case you feel it’s still not done, try 30 more seconds
  9. It’s done when a toothpick comes out clean
  10. Keep it moist as it gets harder when cooled



  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp or so Cream or milk
  • Nutella/any chocolate spread/milk chocolate that you prefer or have at home


  • In a frying pan, melt butter
  • Add cocoa powder, sugar, chocolate or anything sweet that you prefer
  • Add a little cream/milk for consistency
  • Pour over brownie


You can use any frosting that you prefer. I normally simply melt a milk chocolate on a frying pan and add some milk/cream for consistency.


Do try it and tag me on your Instagram stories when you make it. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do. We will be waiting for your comments.

    Is there a baking option in the microwave? Or can i simply turn it on to how I normally heat food?

    Do I need a baking oven for it?? Which oven is best, heating, baking or cooking??

    1. Nadiya Najib says:

      No… As clearly mentioned in the recipe. It is made in a microwave oven, not a baking oven.
