Gluten Free Brownie Skillet
I've always made my brownies from scratch ... I've never been a fan of brownie mixes. And I'm super particular about how I like my brownies, which I'm sure is not surprising to anyone. First thing, no nuts. EVER. And I like them super fudgey, so I always stick to the shorter baking times because dry brownies are dead to me. No thank you. And you can have alllll the corner pieces -- I want the center ones. You can bake these in a cast iron skillet or regular baking pan, either will work just fine. Just keep in mind if you go with the skillet that the brownies will continue to cook for a few minutes after removing from the oven, so figure that into your baking time. But personally I think there's nothing better than putting a giant brownie skillet with decadent toppings right in the center of the table for everyone to dig into. Maybe add some vanilla ice cream. Who needs plates??? *If you do choose the baking pan, make sure to really grease that pan and cool completely before removing and cutting. Keep in mind, these are not what I would call "healthy" whatsoever. But they definitely fall into the "cleaner" category of desserts, so let's just feel better about that. Hey, sometimes you need some decadent brownies for a special occasion and I'm happy to oblige!
