Skillet Brownies* An Oldie But A Gooey~

This post is dedicated to Love*
Love of your Spouse,
Love of your Family,
Love of your Children,
and Love Lost...

Because without it~you would never know just how good life can truly be*

This is an oldie but a gooey, here's to making this Valentine's Day~

Rich, warm and oh sooo sweet*


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces chocolate chips or coarsely chopped chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs. In another bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, and salt.
  2. In a medium cast iron skillet, bring butter and cream to a simmer over medium heat. Add chocolate; reduce to medium-low. Cook, stirring constantly, until chocolate has melted, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and let cool 5 minutes.
  3. Add chocolate mixture to sugar mixture, whisking until blended (reserve skillet). Fold in flour mixture. Pour batter into skillet.
  4. Updated* Bake for about 25 minutes. (Check brownie at 20 minutes for a gooey er consistency* Oven temperatures vary, and since your cast iron skillet holds heat for quite some time, your brownie will continue to bake if left to rest.  For those of you that want a cookie/cake like consistency you may want to let it sit for a bit)
     Serve immediately from skillet
    But be careful, it's hot!

    For an even more decadent treat, serve with ice cream & strawberries!
