Easy Brownie Cake

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day. We ended the day by grilling some steaks, a loaded salad and a glass of wine. Afterwards I wanted an easy dessert. I didn't want to crank up the oven because its been a hot day. I decided to make this brownie cake.

Can you believe, this only took five minutes to bake and I didn't have to use my oven?  I used my microwave. Yep, I nuked it. Now, I'm not going to lie to you and tell you its the best cake I've ever had, but I will say its good. Its not as good as a real cake or real brownies. I think I could have possibly added some chocolate chips or pudding to the mix to make it better.

But it is easy!!

Easy Brownie Cake
Boil 1/2 cup water with 3 tablespoons sugar added. (set aside)
In a bowl, mix together
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup self rising flour
2/3 cup cocoa
Then add
3 eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
(will be a thick mix)
Pour the mix into a buttered 8x8 casserole or 9 inch pan (Tupperware works too).
Then carefully pour the boiling sugar water in the center of mix (do not stir).
Cover with lid or plastic wrap
Microwave high for 5 minutes.
Top with your favorite topping.

If you make this and figure out a way to make it better, Id love to hear your addition.
