Gooey chocolate brownie for one, coming up. The key to getting the perfect texture is not to over-cook it, as that will lead to a tough brownie. As this varies depending on your microwave, check it after 1 minute and microwave in 30-second intervals. The top should look just set when it’s cooked, for a fudgy, gooey center.
