    I've honestly had the worst day, so much work to do, so many lectures and tutorials and labs and I don't know what else and this little recipe has just saved me.
    I'm too skint to buy anything and all I wanted was a little chocolate fix.. I added one egg after i had put all the ingredients together and it was perfect, thank you❤

    It works so well !! I turned the temperature of the microwave down to low and cooked it for 60 seconds and it turned out well . I would use the recipe again all though I would use a little less sugar .

    I think everyone who said it's burnt or tastes like a cake over cooked it, I cooked mine for 60 seconds and it was amazing! Thankyou for the recipe

    If you add 1 egg the recipe is much better

    it tastes REALLY GOOD but it is more like a rich chocolate cake than a brownie due to the texture. But I really enjoyed it so...... if you like chocolate cake then try it!

    Have tried multiple times and it always turns out to be a chewy mess

    I'd rate this a 4 bc the brownie texture isn't like REAL brownies it tastes kind of funky and weird but it's your choice to make I'm just saying what I honestly think

    I liked this a lot, but found that if the salt us put in as early as you suggest, it winds up too salty because it doesn't disperse well enough, or it oversaturates or something. I put in a pinch and everyone thought it was far too much, except me, but I like salt.

    A method I worked out is if you add the salt with the flour, then mix it all up, it works better.
