Gluten Free Brownies

These are deliciously moist and rich brownies made in the microwave. A great idea for a quick dessert if you are entertaining people on the spur which we love to do. And especially handy as I have 3 very good friends who are on gluten free diets.

This is served with Killinchy Gold Manuka Honey and Almond ice cream.

Gluten Free Microwave Brownies:
1/2 cup margarine (or butter)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup gluten free baking mix
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup chopped chocolate (I used Cadbury's Energy bar)

Melt margarine/butter on high for 45secs in a microwave proof bowl. Add sugar and eggs and vanilla and beat till creamy. Mix in dry ingredients until just blended.
Spread evenly into baking dish and microwave on medium for 8-10 minutes until the top appears dry and springs back when touched.
Leave to cool and cut into bars. What I did last night was serve it hot with ice cream for a lovely hot treat as the chocolate was still all gooey. YUM!

Can be served with a sprinkling of chopped nuts on top too. Like Katie did with hers:

That is one gluten free meal that looks absolutely as appealing as a non-gluten free brownie. Great work.
