One Pan Brownies

One Pan Brownies
Makes 1 small cast iron skillet or 6" x 6" brownie pan

This recipe is fabulous because it only involves one pan and one spoon. Stove-to-oven-to-mouth in less than 30 minutes. 

1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature 1 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole raw walnuts

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Over low heat, slowly warm a metal brownie pan or small cast iron skillet (do not use a glass pan for this) to melt butter and chocolate, stirring until just melted. Remove pan from the burner and add vanilla, salt and one egg at a time.

As the batter thickens add sugar and flour, stirring until just combined.

Wipe sides of the tray or skillet (for clean edges) and stud the surface with walnuts. Place brownies in the oven and bake for 20 - 22 minutes or until the brownie is set, but slightly gooey. A knife inserted in the center of the pan should have moist crumbs upon removal.

Cool completely and serve.
