  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Vanilla ice cream (for serving)


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Melt Butter and Chocolate: In a medium oven-safe skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the chocolate chips and stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove the skillet from heat.
  3. Mix Sugar and Eggs: Stir in the granulated sugar until well combined. Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then whisk in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the skillet, stirring until just combined.
  5. Bake: Smooth the top of the batter with a spatula. Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are set but the center is still slightly gooey.
  6. Serve: Remove the skillet from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Serve the cake warm, topped with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
