cast iron skillet brownies

·       1 cup sugar
·       3 large eggs
·       1 cup all-purpose flour 
·       1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder 
·       1/2 teaspoon salt
·       4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
·       1/4 cup heavy cream
·       8 ounces chocolate chips or coarsely chopped chocolate

1.      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs.
2.      In another bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, and salt.

3.      In a medium cast iron skillet, bring butter and cream to a simmer over medium heat. Add chocolate; reduce to medium-low. Cook, stirring constantly, until chocolate has melted, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and let cool 5 minutes.

4.      Add chocolate mixture to sugar mixture, whisking until blended (reserve skillet).
5.      Fold in flour mixture. Pour batter into skillet.

6.      Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
7.      (for a gooier brownie bake for about 35 minutes)

Serve from skillet, warm or at room temperature.
