Microwave Brownies, by George!

When my oven was broken, I looked for recipes I could microwave. I didn't think brownies would work, because baked goods tend to dry out in the microwave, or so I thought.
This recipe I got from the Food Network, courtesy of George Duran. I made them today, and even an hour after baking they were still soft. I covered them with Press'N Seal and hope they will stay nice until my husband and daughter come home. They do taste great!
The only change I would make is next time, I would sprinkle the top with some toasted chopped nuts, too.

2In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. I used raw sugar when I made this, but regular white granulated sugar will also work.
