  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 10 ounces chocolate chips, milk or semi-sweet, your choice!
  • flaked salt, for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt.
  • Heat an oven safe (preferably cast iron!) 12-inch skillet over low heat. Let the skillet heat up for 5 minutes. Add the butter and let it melt completely. Stir in the sugars with a wooden spoon. Turn off the heat under the skillet. You MUST turn off the heat! You can also remove the skillet from the burner if you wish.
  • Whisk together the egg and egg yolks in a bowl. Add it to the skillet sugar mixture and mix in right away with a spoon, quickly mixing so the eggs don’t cook from the heat. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Stir in the dry ingredients until just combined. This will take a minute or two and the mixture will be thick, but they will mix in! You can wipe the top of the skillet or the sides with a damp paper towel to remove excess flour.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips. Bake the skillet cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it’s mostly set in the center. Top with flaked sea salt.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
