Brownie love

I love brownies!  And when a brownie is the size of a skillet, as this one is . . . . heaven.  I’m in heaven.

Most people have a favorite type of brownie.  They are either gooey brownie fanatics or cakey brownie enthusiasts!

I, my friends, am an equal opportunity brownie eater.

I don’t discriminate.  I will say yes to anything that has the word brownie in it.  Do I have a favorite?  For a small brownie, I like gooey.  For a brownie sundae or a skillet brownie, I prefer cakey.

Do you want to know what my rationale is?  Okay, here it is.  When the brownie isn’t dressed with ice cream or some such accompaniment, I like gooey.  That brownie doesn’t need anything else.

But, if I want a delicious brownie sundae, for example, the ice cream is wet and creamy and the chocolate sauce that accompanies it is wet and gooey, so who needs the brownie to be gooey, too?

I’d guess most people.

But not me!  And I’m okay with that.

What about you?  Let me know what you think in the comment section.

I preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Butter, brown sugar and white sugar on the wooden table

This is what I do first.  I drag out my stand mixer and place the room temperature butter in it along with the brown and white sugar.

I turn the mixer on and combine the butter and sugars.

Next, I grab an egg and some vanilla and add them to the mixer.

Time to gather the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.

I love Ghirardelli cocoa.  Oh, and I love their chocolate.  And them.  I love them.

Kissy, kissy!  😉

I turn on the mixer and combine my ingredients until it becomes dough.  Once combined, I stir in some chocolate chips.

Time to grease the 10 inch enameled, cast iron pan.  Then I pack the dough into the pan.

I also take a few of the big 60% cocoa chocolate chips and press them into the top of the dough, spacing them strategically for maximum effect!

Time to pop this masterpiece into the oven.

I set the timer for 15 minutes.


Let’s gaze at how yummy it looks, fresh out of the oven, chocolate chips gleaming.  They’re gleaming, I tell you!!

Now let us gaze upon a single, luscious bite.  Try not to drool.

  1. Chocolate yummmm!!! This recipe looks like it could be against the law but I know once I make it I’ll be glad it’s not.

  2. My husband would look at that single skillet and call it a “portion” — especially with all that chocolate! Dangerous for our diet, that’s for sure… Looks delicious!

    1. Lisa, I agree, it’s dangerous, that’s why I end up making it at a dinner party so I won’t eat the whole thing myself.

  3. Ohhhh…looks like it would satisfy my chocolate craving! I haven’t made many skillet desserts, but it looks like I am going to be trying it soon!

  4. Skillet brownies are my favorite!!! Nothing screams comfort than eating straight out of a skillet and more than than that I’m not in for a single slice, give that skillet, I say:)

  5. Oh my gosh, I think I could live off of this. So chocolatey and the perfect balance between brownie and cake! NEEEED!
