Microwave peanut butter & jam brownie

Jack Monroe shows us how to make a beautiful peanut butter & jam brownie in the microwave in minutes.

Points to remember

  • Melt the butter and peanut butter together in a bowl in the microwave.
  • Once melted, add the egg and mix thoroughly. Sieve in the dry ingredients and mix again.
  • Tip the mixture into a microwave safe bowl lined with cling film. Make small indentations in the mixture using the back of the spoon and add the jam.
  • Once you’ve added the jam, microwave for 4 mins.
  • Leave the brownie to cool for about 10 mins before serving.
  • To check it’s cooked, insert a sharp knife or skewer into the cake part of the dessert (not the jam). If it comes out cleanly it’s ready to serve.
