How to Make Delicious Brownies in a Skillet
This easy skillet brownies recipe is a great way to satisfy a craving for chocolate, without having to resort to a conventional oven. You can make a delicious batch of homemade brownies in less than an hour. The best part is that the brownies are made in the same skillet that you’ve used to make them, so you can scoop them out and eat them on the spot! Make sure to use the correct pan size for the recipe, though!
For best results, you’ll need a cast iron skillet. Wooden or plastic handles should not be placed inside a hot oven. A cast iron skillet is the preferred choice of many professional bakers because it is heat-efficient and makes baking a breeze. If you have any doubts, you can buy one from a bakery and check out the reviews. The brownies will look much better cooked in a cast iron skillet and have a chewier edge!
The following ingredient list is for traditional, skillet-style brownies. Cocoa powder can be Hershey’s or 100% Dutch, and all-purpose flour can be found in many households. Sugar, especially White Cane Sugar, is standard. Salt is also a nice addition to make these tasty treats more balanced. Combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until well-blended. Pour batter into the prepared skillet and spread evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for thirty to forty-five minutes, or until brownies are set in the middle. Once baked, allow the brownies to cool completely and eat while still soft.
When baking brownies, do not beat the batter. Over-beating will make the batter tough and the topping will be tough. Cook until the brownies are set to the touch, but still a little underdone. Once pulled out of the oven, allow the skillet brownies to cool completely before serving. Then, serve warm or chilled. If you’re making them in advance, store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. You can also reheat leftover brownies in a microwave for a few seconds.
In order to make skillet brownies, you will need a cast-iron skillet that is preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the brownie batter into the skillet and then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the top is set and a thin crust is beginning to form. The middle of the brownie should still be soft but firm, but this should not be a problem as the pan will continue to cook the brownies once you remove them from the oven.
For this recipe, you’ll need All-Purpose Flour and White Cane Sugar. These are common household ingredients. Finally, add Salt to balance the sweetness with the bitterness. You’re almost finished! This easy dessert is sure to satisfy everyone on your list. Baking time for skillet brownies
Skillet-style brownies can be served as a large dessert to share or in individual portions. Using a cast-iron skillet makes the process much simpler and makes the finished product better than a traditional chocolate-chip cookie.

When the brownies are done, a toothpick inserted into the center should come out with moist crumbs. After removing from the oven, allow them to cool to room temperature before serving. If desired, serve the brownies warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a spoonful of whipped cream.
