Cast Iron Skillet Brownies

I am always looking for interesting ways to cook. This recipe is fun to make in a cast iron skillet. I think that i can easily change it to a dutch oven recipe.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dutch process cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 T unsalted butter
  • 1/4 heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar. In another bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, and salt.
  3. In a medium cast iron skillet, bring butter and cream to a simmer over medium heat. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted about 1 minute. Remove from heat, allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the chocolate mixture to the sugar mixture, whisking until well blended. Fold in the flour mixture.
  5. Pour the batter back into the skillet.
  6. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
  7. Serve warm from the skillet, with ice cream.
Note - If desired, sprinkle more chocolate chips on top of the batter before baking.

I think that this recipe will work well in a Camp Dutch Oven.

This recipe is from Simply Food Love a food blog by Carla that is simply charming.
