One-pan brownies

Yields 1 (6 x 6-inch) tray of brownies


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup whole raw walnuts


  1. Heat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Over low heat, slowly warm a metal brownie pan or small cast-iron skillet (do not use a glass pan for this) to melt the butter and chocolate, stirring until just melted. Remove the pan from the burner, and add the vanilla, salt and 1 egg at a time.
  3. As the batter thickens, add the sugar and flour, stirring until just combined.
  4. Wipe the sides of the tray or skillet (for clean edges), and stud the surface with walnuts. Place the brownies in the oven, and bake for 20 – 22 minutes or until the brownie is set but slightly gooey. A knife inserted in the center of the pan should have moist crumbs upon removal.
  5. Let cool completely, and serve.
