Prepare a microwave safe non-metallic tray by spraying it with cooking oil and ensuring it is fully coated.
Weigh out the butter into a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave on low.
Add the sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla essence then mix well.
Add each egg one at a time mixing well after each addition.
Stir in the flour and ensure it is all incorporated.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tray and spread to the edges. Place in the microwave on high for 5 minutes.
Check progress, it will probably need around 3 more minutes. Keep watching it. It will be ready when it starts to shrink away from the edges. In the centre there may be a spot which looks uncooked but the mixture continues to cook while cooling so this will soon disappear.
Leave to cool completely and then cut in the tray. Transfer to a serving plate.
Add chocolate chips or chopped chocolate for double chocolate brownies. Alternatively add nuts for a crunchy texture.
