    150g unsalted butter (extra for greasing)

    150g caster sugar

    1 tsp vanilla extract

    2 tbsp milk

    2 medium eggs, beaten

    50g plain flour

    75g cocoa powder

    70g white / milk chocolate buttons


    Grease a 22cm ceramic or microwavable baking dish and line with baking paper.

    Cut the butter into cubes and add to a large microwavable bowl. Microwave for 1 minute or until melted.

    Add the sugar and whisk until creamy making sure the sugar has fully dissolved.

    Pour the vanilla extract, milk and beaten eggs in the butter mixture and mix thoroughly.

    Separately sift the flour and cocoa powder, then gently fold into the wet mix.

    Stir in the chocolate buttons and pour into the lined baking dish, smoothing the top with a spatula or big spoon.

    Cook on full power for 5 minutes turning halfway through. The brownie should be risen and slightly firm to touch.

    Allow to cool completely before turning out and slicing.

    Why not try serving it with cream or ice cream and top with a dusting of cocoa powder.
