Mini Skillet Brownie

An individual serving (or two) of a perfectly fudgy brownie
Servings: 2
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 35 mins


  • 4 Tbs butter plus extra for greasing the pan
  • ½ Cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ Cup sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • ½ Cup flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ice cream or whipped cream for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350° and generously butter your mini skillet. (see note 1 for more skillet info!)
  • In a small bowl, melt together butter, chocolate, sugar and vanilla in a microwave in 30 second spurts, stirring between spurts.
    While the chocolate mix is cooling, in a medium bowl beat the egg with an electric mixer on high until it's very pale and frothy (about 3-5 minutes).
    Mix the chocolate mixture into the egg on low speed.
  • Add in flour, salt and baking powder and mix together with a spatula until just combined.
  • Pour mix into the greased skillet and even out the top with the spatula.
    Bake for 20-30 mins, until the outer edges are dry and set, the top is crackly, and a toothpick comes out mostly clean. (see note 2 for baking time tips!)


Note: I use a 5-6 inch skillet for this recipe. If you have 3-inch skillets you could make the batter as written and divide the batter evenly into 2 3-inch skillets.
This baking time range is so wide because baking time greatly varies by oven. I recommend checking your brownie starting at 20 minutes and checking every 3 minutes after that. Check the notes in the post above for more tips on getting the perfect bake!
