Fudgy Brownie Sundaes


A moist, decadent brownie gets topped with the classic combo of caramel and vanilla ice cream. Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes episode 609.


  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, at room temperature, plus more for ramekins

  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate (61%), coarsely chopped

  • 1 ½ cups sugar

  • 3 large eggs

  • ¼ cup Dutch-process cocoa powder

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, sifted

  • Caramel Sauce for Brownie Sundaes, for serving

  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter six 6-ounce ramekins.

  2. Melt butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat, and whisk in sugar. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until combined. Sift in cocoa and salt. Fold in flour until combined.

  3. Using a 1/2-cup ice cream scoop, divide batter among prepared ramekins. Bake until set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs attached, 30 to 32 minutes. Let cool slightly, and serve warm with caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
