Skillet Brownies - A Fudgy, Scoopable Delight

It's no secret that I love dessert--and mostly chocolate. While brownies are a dear favorite of mine, I despise the generic cake mixes that give it an artificial, flavorless taste. That's why I got excited when I stumbled upon a from-scratch brownie recipe, making use of an unconventional baking tool, the skillet.

Besides the fact that the recipe was super easy and was made from ingredients I already had at home, it was fun to serve and simple to store. All I had to do was scoop it out with an ice cream scoop. The messy yet fun presentation was a nice surprise to my friends who I served it to. I think they appreciated the simplicity and loved the fudgy, homemade taste. I recommend this brownie to novices and experienced cooks alike.

  1. Are you going to try any of the other skillet desserts in that issue? The dutch baby pancake looks really good! I definitely want to try it. Glad you tried out the brownies, I was intrigued by the ease of it all :) G-ma and I tried out the "Broken Noodles w/ Tomato Sauce & Ricotta" tonight from that issue... it was actually VERY good, simple, nice... needed a BIT more spice, but overall very tasty.

  2. Yes, I made the Dutch baby pancake on Sunday morning and it was delightful. I will write about it soon and highly recommend making it because it's so damn easy. Ooohhh the noodles looked yum too. I will have to try that next. It's a great mag - so simple and the recipes are well written.

  3. mmmmmmmm...these look delicious!!

  4. Thanks Kimberlah - we really enjoyed them.
