  • 1/4 cup self-raising flour sifted
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp icing sugar optional - for dusting
  • ice cream optional, but why wouldn't you, really?


  • Add flour to a cup, then stir in sugar, cocoa, oil and water
  • Mix all together until you get a smooth texture. You'll need to end up with a soft, creamy mixture so if you're not totally happy with your result, add a few more drops of water.
  • Place into the microwave on highest setting, for 1 min 40 seconds. You may need to experiment a little with that as microwaves have different settings.
  • Dust icing sugar
  • Add a scoop of ice cream (optional; but again, why wouldn't you?) and serve immediately.
  • Enjoy your microwave brownie recipe!
