  • 5 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips plus more for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 6 inch cast iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. You can also use a 5 or 6 inch round cake pan or an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  • Stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the oil and egg and stir until thick and moist. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spread in the prepared pan and sprinkle with more chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake for 17-22 minutes until the top just loses its glossy sheen. For more done brownies, wait until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs when inserted 1 inch from the edge of the pan.
  • Cool and then slice and serve or eat straight from the pan.


Omit the chocolate chips and add nuts or chopped candy to your liking.  We also love making these for parties.
