Brownies in a Cast Iron Skillet

How’s that for 1 pan cooking? You get fudgy-ooey-gooey brownies by using only one cast iron skillet and you even bake it in that as well! You don’t need to grease the skillet because your weathering will already do the trick.

Nnnnom. Read on for recipe and photos…


3/4 cup unsalted butter

3 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, coarsely chopped

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3 eggs

3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Cut butter into chunks and place in skillet with the chocolate. Melt over low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
  • When the chocolate is completely melted, remove from heat and add both sugars. Stir until combined.
  • Add eggs one at at time stirring well after each addition.
  • Add vanilla, stir well.
  • Add flour and salt and stir until very well combined.

  • Use a rubber spatula around the edge of the skillet to clean of the sides and to aide the no-stick process.
  • Place skillet in the oven and bake for 50 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center to test for doneness. The toothpick should come out clean.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes (out of the skillet…be careful, mine split in half when I tried to get it out just from the weight itself).
  • Perfect for a craving or for a friend’s birthday ; )
