Some additional tips on making eggless brownies in a microwave:
Tip 1: Suitable Mug/Bowl size
The science of baking says, the larger the surface area of your pan, the more you ensure even and uniform baking. Your eggless brownie batter might become too much for tall and lean cups. The heat of the microwave is not really able to penetrate that depth. This results in the brownie being extremely under-cooked. And if you wanted to eat the batter, why throw it in the microwave in the first place? Thus, please use cups with a wide mouth, and which are shorter to get evenly baked eggless brownies.
Tip 2: Be cautious of the timing
All microwaves, unlike ovens, are extremely different from each other. Stick to the time the recipe asks you to stick to. However, if a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out extremely wet, bake for more short intervals until you get a fully baked eggless brownie and your toothpick comes out clean or almost clean.
Tip 3: Put Appropriate amount of filling
Please give your eggless brownies in a microwave some space to rise. Ideally, filling only half a cup or just slightly more is the perfect amount of batter. This truly does make the best eggless brownies and ensures that everything is in shape.
