Microwave brownies recipe #2

You will need

1 egg
3/4 cup soft icing mixture
Pinch salt
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup cocoa
Somewhere between 1/2 and 1 cup of rolled oats

Cooking instructions

  1. Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl.

  2. Mix in all the other ingredients. The salt is absolutely necessary, so this is the point where you make sure you remember it.

  3. Microwave on high for 1.5 to 3 minutes. Do not let the center get totally dry or it will be overcooked. Take it out when there is still a small moist spot in the center. It finishes cooking as it cools.

This recipe comes out soft, fudgy and awesome. The amount of oats is to taste, but 1/2 a cup seems to be the minimum or else it just ends up a buttery mess. You could probably add more flour instead of the oats, but I like oat brownies.

Since I don't know what it's called everywhere around the world, 'soft icing mixture' is the one that's icing sugar and starch combined.
