Chunky Chocolate Cookie In a Pan

Friday 29 November 2019

You are sure to love this recipe I am sharing with you today. Not only is it very unusual, but it is also quick, easy and delicious! 

A skillet sized chocolate chunk cookie that bakes on top of the stove, right in the skillet!

I told myself that this year I wasn't going to buy myself any more cookery books, but then the other day when I had gone to Gordale to buy my Christmas cards, lo and behold, this little book jumped right into my basket!  How could I resist however.  Cookies in a Pan by Sabrina Fauda-Role.  It was just far too tempting and the price was right, only £3.99.  A real bargain.

Everything for the cookie gets mixed together right in the pan.  Melted butter, egg, flour, sugar and baking powder . . .  I added some vanilla paste because I am quite unable to leave things well alone, and a chocolate chunk cookie with vanilla is to me perfection.

You spread the batter out in the pan, press some chocolate chunks into it and let it bake on the stove top in the skillet over very low heat for about fifteen minutes and then you cover it tightly and bake it for about 5 minutes longer.

Voila!  Presto changeo!  You end up with a beautiful skillet sized cookie!

Its like magic.  Its more than magic!

What a fabulous gift one of these would be for a neighbour, friend or family for Christmas, presented right in the pan it was baked in! 

Who wouldn't be totally thrilled to get a gift like that!  Not me that's who!  I would love it!

The recipe said it made six servings, but in all honesty they would be HUGE!  I cut it into eight wedges and they were still nice and big.

Look at that beautiful texture, very much like a regular cookie!

And that  mix of chocolate chunks . . .  Perfection!

Todd and I each enjoyed one while they were still semi warm . . . 

The chocolate slightly gooey, so, so, so good  . . .

I dare say these would make for an excellent dessert served warm in wedges with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and perhaps some indulgent chocolate or toffee sauce spooned over top!

Chunky Chocolate Cookie In a Pan

Yield: 8
An interesting way to bake a cookie, in a skillet on top of the stove. Deliciously different!


  • 150g plain flour (1 cup + 1 1/2 TBS)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 90g sugar (scant 1/2 cup)
  • 100g salted butter (7 TBS)
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 large free range egg, beaten
To top:
  • 120g squares of chocolate (a mix of white, dark and milk) (4 ounces)


How to cook Chunky Chocolate Cookie In a Pan

  1. Measure the flour, sugar, and baking powder into a bowl and whisk well together.  Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a 10 inch non-stick skillet over very low heat.  Remove from the heat.  Whisk a bit of the butter into the beaten egg to temper it and then whisk the egg back into the butter in the skillet.  Whisk in the vanilla paste and then the dry ingredients until you have a mixture with a smooth texture.  Spread out into the bottom of the skillet evenly.  Scatter the chocolate bits over top, pressing in lightly.
  3. Place over low heat again and cook for 15 minutes.  Cover tightly with a lid and cook for a further 5 minutes.  Remove the lid and wipe off any condensation which has formed.  Replace on the pan and remove the pan to a wire rack away from the heat to cool for 15 minutes before cutting into wedges to serve.

I was really surprised and quite pleased with how these turned out!  I am game now to try some of the other recipes in the book and maybe even invent a few combinations of my own!

    1. I hope you enjoy it Debs! It was really good I thought! xoxo

  2. I made it and it turned out perfect. Not much washing up to do either. Apparently it tasted good (I honestly only tried a crumb) I love to bake but I do try not to eat any of it!

    1. I am so happy that it was enjoyed Charlie! I wish I had your willpower when it comes to things like this. I find I have to give it away right away or I am into it! Happy Holidays!
