  • 5 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 6 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips plus more to sprinkle on top


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 6" cast iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. You can also use a 5-6" round cake pan or similar volume mini loaf pan.
  • Stir together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium size bowl. Add egg and oil and stir until thick and moist. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread in prepared pan, sprinkle with more chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake for 17-22 minutes depending on desired doneness. For gooier underdone brownies cook them about 17 minutes. For more done, bake 20-22 minutes. A toothpick will come out with just a few crumbs 1" from the side for more done brownies.
  • Serve with ice cream or whipped cream and two spoons or let cool and slice.
