This is a very good recipe, I didn't add the extra 0.5 of the ingredients (so I rounded the recipe down) it was really gooey, moist and tasty, loved it! I will try this again with 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder to see if it makes it more airy.

Absolutely delicious! A bit dry, so would recommend using a bit more milk and microwaving for a bit long.

To stop it being dry I melted some chocolate into the mixture, used a tbsp less flour and microwaved it for a minute at 800w.

Mixture was too thick to stir and resulted in unmixed and sticky brownie

Not bad but very sickly! Good for a quick chocolate/cake fix.

I make mine often. I find you need more milk than 2 tbs and I add a tiny bit of baking powder for a little bit of a rise
