A skillet is a terrific tool to make a quick and easy dinner or even dessert. These Fudgy Skillet Brownies are mixed up in one bowl then baked into a rich, chocolate coma inducing dessert.
This is the time of year when we’re all looking for speedy dinner ideas. School has started as have all those accompanying after-school activities.
Time is at a premium, so it’s the perfect time to break out your skillet and cook up a meal made in one pan. Start to finish an hour or less. I know I’ve piqued your interest!
But don’t you dare forget the last course. Skillet desserts are the best! Kind of rustic, served right out of a cast iron skillet, and so delicious!!!
Fudgy Skillet Brownies
The Sunday Supper crew is sharing their favorite one-skillet entrees, breakfasts, and even a couple of desserts! I have a handful of skillet recipes that I make over and over. But it was time to increase my repertoire.
These fudgy skilled brownies are thick and decadent, but best of all, they’re a snap to make! I whip them up mid-afternoon and let them cool on the counter till after dinner.
Served in wedges, they can be jazzed up with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of fudge or caramel sauce. Swoon-worthy.
I used a 10-inch Le Creuset Skillet and this recipe filled the pan to the brim. If your skillet is smaller, I’d suggest making 2/3 of this recipe or you will definitely have a mess in your oven.
With a smaller skillet, increase the oven temperature to 350º and decrease the time to about 40 minutes.With brownies, it’s hard to tell when they are done. The toothpick test that you use for cakes is not accurate. I know when my kitchen fills with an intense brownie aroma, the time is near. They’ll pull away from the edge of the pan very slightly and should have risen to the top of the skillet.
I added some milk chocolate chips to tone down the chocolate intensity for one particular family member. Add white chocolate, bittersweet, semisweet chips or even chunks of toffee to customize them for your family. Toasted walnuts would be fabulous, too!
