Cast Iron Skillet Brownies

Easy fixings for a chocolatey fall treat

11The seasons are changing and that chill in the air has us ready to fire up our ovens to warm things up with some delicious, piping-hot home-cooked meals. Of course, when supper’s over, we’re more than ready for something sweet to top it all off. 

Look no further than these Cast Iron Skillet Brownies from Simply Food Love. Ooey, gooey, chocolatey goodness baked and served in a trusty cast iron skillet – life just doesn’t get any better than this, folks. 

Give the recipe below a try. Our pairing recommendation: smooth vanilla ice cream. Mmm, mmm… 


  • 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


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs. In another bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, and salt.

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.

Add chocolate mixture to sugar mixture, whisking until blended (reserve skillet). Fold in flour mixture. Pour batter into skillet.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. (for a gooeyer brownie bake for about 35 minutes)

Serve from skillet, warm or at room temperature.
