Homemade Skillet Brownies

5 years ago

I wanted to make something chocolate-y for my boyfriend to bring to work in celebration of Valentine`s Day. I was browsing around found a recipe for skillet brownies on a food blog called http://passthesushi.com/. You can see the recipe I used http://passthesushi.com/skillet-brownies. I have a few different skillets, and I`d never used them to bake brownies before, so I decided to give it a shot! =) Here`s the recipe (I copy-pasted it from the source link below): Skillet Brownies From the http://thekitchensinkrecipes.com/2009/03/24/it-aint-broke-but/ Ingredients: 1 1/4 cups sugar 3 large eggs 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled) 1/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder (spooned and leveled) 1/2 teaspoon salt 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 1/4 cup heavy cream 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the sugar and eggs until fully incorporated. In another bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, and salt. In an ovenproof skillet (I used an iron skillet), bring butter and cream to a simmer over medium and butter is melted. Reduce heat to low and stir in the chocolate for one minute. Remove from heat, let stand 5 minutes and stir. Let sit another 5 minutes to cool. Pour the chocolate chocolate mixture into sugar mixture, whisking until blended. Fold in the flour. Pour batter back into skillet, and using a rubber spatula scrape down sides if needed. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes. Slice and serve warm from the skillet, with a scoop of plain vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of caramel and chocolate sauce. These brownies were AWESOME. This is actually the first time, in all the times that I`ve made brownies, that I`ve gotten a flaky top on them! I`ve always wanted that to happen, and now it has! XD I wonder if it`s due to the skillet retaining heat a lot better than the thin metal baking pans I use. I`ll have to look into it! The texture of this brownie is really fudgy, and chewy towards the edges (where it touched the edge of the skillet). They are really sweet, although I did only use a 50% chocolate bar, when the recipe called for bittersweet chocolate (which is 60% to 80% dark chocolate). So, I think I`ll be using a darker chocolate next time. Aside from the minor fumble on my part, I loved this recipe, LOVED the brownies, and will definitely be making them in a skillet again!
