Just let me cook in them. Please?
My grandmother gave me these. She has quite a few of them - her mother's and my grandfather's mother's. I have two right now, but I can't wait to get my hands on some others.
They're a thing of a beauty. A right of passage.
And they bake - beautifully.
Iron Skillet Brownies
from Amanda's Cookin'
What You'll Need
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate (chopped)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, tightly packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1. Preheat your oven to 325° F. You want it to cook low and slow so the top doesn't burn and the inside is too gooey.
2. Melt the butter and chopped chocolate in your skillet on a low heat. (By low, I mean low. Don't turn it up. You don't want to burn the butter and chocolate - which is easy if you turn it too high.) Stir until well combined with a wooden spoon. (Never metal.)
3. Add sugar and light brown sugar and stir until well combined.
4. Add eggs one at a time, stirring until well combined.
5. Add vanilla and combine.
6. Add flour and salt and stir well. Run a rubber spatula around the edges, making sure all the batter is well combined.
7. Bake for 50 minutes. If your pan is larger than 8 inches (what I used), it may take less time. Mine took exactly 50 minutes.
