Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 350ºF and butter your Larder & Vine Skillet.

Add melted butter, sugar, and cocoa powder to a microwave-safe bowl. Mix until well combined, then heat in the microwave until the sugar has dissolved and the batter is smooth.

Into the same bowl or a large mixing bowl, add batter, vanilla extract, eggs, and flour. Mix until smooth and add to your greased skillet.

Bake for about 40 to 50 minutes. Use a toothpick to check when the brownie has finished cooking. If the toothpick comes out clean, the brownie is done. if the toothpick comes out with batter, continue cooking and repeat the toothpick test.

Once the brownie is ready, remove it from the oven & sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired. Slice into 6 triangles and enjoy. Elevate each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
