1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup chocolate chunks or chips

Nonstick cooking spray

Directions

  1. Put the butter and chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds to melt the chocolate. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar.
  3. In a large bowl sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Add the egg and chocolate mixtures along with the vanilla and stir well to combine.
  4. Spray an 8 by 8 by-2-inch microwave safe glass pan with cooking spray. Pour the batter into the pan, spread it out evenly, and scatter the chocolate chunks on top. Cook on high for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 3 minutes before cutting and eating.
