2. Place the butter in a large microwave safe bowl and microwave on HIGH for a minute or until butter melts.

3. Using a wooden spoon, stir in cocoa powder to this and combine well.

8. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Remove and let cool when done.


9. Serve warm as it is or you may even add a frosting, if you wish.


I have used salted butter instead of normal butter, because I like the salty taste in imparts to sweet dishes. You may choose to use normal butter instead.

If you are using unsweetened cocoa powder then add another ½ cup of sugar to make it sweet.

You can add chopped walnuts, if you wish. If doing so, add it right after adding the flour to the brownie batter.
