19 Things to Make in a Brownie Pan

12 Things to Make in a Brownie Pan
Your Brownie Pan is for much more than brownies. This versatile piece of bakeware handles everything from breakfast recipes to main dishes, and (of course!) lots of fun dessert recipes. Just when you thought you couldn’t love the Brownie Pan more, here are 19 unique recipes you can make in it.

1. Breakfast Sandwiches

This recipe comes from a consultant’s post on Instagram. We love how @jensjoysjourneys tested making quick, grab-n-go egg sandwiches and made so many eggs squares at once! Here’s her recipe:

Crack 1 egg in each well. Poke each yolk with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Then bake in preheated oven at 350º (180°C) for 13–15 minutes until set.

Then assemble with an English muffin, cooked bacon or breakfast sausage, and cheese. You can wrap them up in wax paper and keep them in the fridge for up to three days or freeze them for up to a month. To reheat them, remove the wax paper and wrap your sandwiches in a paper towel. Heat them for two minutes in microwave or until heated through.

LThis is another recipe inspired by a consultant that goes way beyond a brownie box mix hack. A blended sweet pecan butter goes into a fudge brownie mix. Once baked, the brownies get topped with ice cream and a homemade butterscotch sauce. Pro tip: Double the sauce recipe. It’s great on its own.

3. Mini Apple Pies

What’s better than homemade apple pie? Single-serving portions of homemade apple pie! When you make these mini pies in the Brownie Pan, everyone gets a right-size piece with the perfect crust-to-filling ratio.

4. 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Cakes

Talk about a quick and easy dessert! As the name might suggest, this Brownie Pan recipe is about as easy as it gets. You can whip it up quickly if company drops in, or when you’re in the mood for a sweet treat. You only need a box of spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin.

5. Mini Mummy Pizzas

How cute are these? They’re a fun Halloween snack when the kids are done trick-or-treating. And don’t feel like you have to reserve this recipe for October only; modify it with your favorite toppings for fun snacking any time of year.

6. Pumpkin Streusel Cheesecake Squares

If you avoid making cheesecake because you don’t like how time-consuming or finicky it is, this recipe makes it simple. It comes together in about 30 minutes from start to finish! To make things even easier—and more delicious—this cheesecake recipe uses pecan shortbread cookies as a base instead of a traditional crust. Say hello to your go-to treat for fall.

7. Sausage and Apple Herbed Stuffing

Prepare your favorite stuffing recipe and bake it in a Brownie Pan. This way, everyone gets a proper stuffing portion or two! Plus it cooks faster in the pan, and each serving ends up with a delicious crispy edge. Maybe it will become your favorite holiday side dish!

8. Mini Frittatas

Make a quick and easy breakfast recipe at the beginning of the week and take a portion to work every day. Try our three easy frittata recipes in the Brownie Pan. And, these frittatas are simple enough to have prepped and ready to bake when visitors come to town.


9. Mini Spinach Lasagna Squares

Keep portion size in mind by preparing your favorite food—like lasagna—in a Brownie Pan. This spinach lasagna recipe uses cheese ravioli instead of traditional lasagna noodles for quick and easy prep. And two squares make one portion, so make a pan of these and you have enough dinner for the whole family and then some.

10. Mini Cheeseburger Pies

The beauty of this burger recipe is that you do 90 percent of the assembly right in the Brownie Pan before baking—the “bun” and meat cook at the same time. Then, just add the veggie toppings and condiments before serving.

Mini Cheeseburger Bites

11. Fresh Blueberries & Cream Cakes

Who doesn’t love the ease of a semi-homemade dessert? Layers of pound cake, sweet cream cheese, warm blueberry compote, and crispy crumbles add up to one delicious recipe. Try making a batch or two for a brunch or party.

Fresh Blueberries & Cream Cakes

12. Flourless Oatmeal Bars

This protein- and fiber-packed treat gets lots of nutrients from processed chickpeas, which take the place of flour in this recipe. These are a healthy snack option, but the flavors work well for breakfast, too…kind of like a homemade soft granola bar!

Flourless Oatmeal Bars

13. Veggie Quesadilla Cups

Here’s a fresh take on a quesadilla recipe that works great as an appetizer or as a main dish. All the ingredients are held within a cute little cup—very convenient for the kids’ meals!

Veggie Quesadilla Cups

14. Orange Blossom Cakes

Moist cake plus tangy and sweet citrus glaze…is there a better combination? These single-serving desserts are a cake version of an orange dreamsicle.

Orange Blossom Cakes

15. Strawberry Blondies

Finely chopped strawberries and melted white chocolate in the cake batter give this treat a heavenly touch of fresh sweetness. These will be the hit of any wedding shower or brunch party. And, you can whip them up fast without a pile of mixing bowls and scrapers using an all-in-one batter mixer and dispenser. One pump of the dispenser on its largest setting will fill each brownie pan well for evenly baking.

Strawberry Blondies

16. Apple Cheddar Bacon Egg Muffins

These breakfast muffins are a versatile and easy go-to recipe when you’re making brunch for a crowd. No brunch plans? Make them on a Sunday afternoon and you’ll have sweet and savory breakfast muffins all week long.

Apple Cheddar Bacon Egg Muffins

17. 2-Ingredient Carrot Cake

All it takes to get to tasty carrot cake bites is a can of mandarin oranges. Who knew? Add them to a box of carrot cake mix and you have a quick treat for that last-minute get together. Top it with store-bought cream cheese frosting or make your own with the tips in this Brownie Pan recipe.

2-Ingredient Carrot Cake

18. Naughty Brownies

This dessert is an indulgent combo of chocolate and peanut butter in the best possible way. It’s the fusion of three simple store-bought ingredients into a unique treat that will disappear immediately from any dessert table.

Naughty Brownies

19. Strawberry Heart Brownies

Individually baked brownies can be your little canvases for creative decorating. Pipe a couple’s monogram onto each brownie square for a bridal shower. Or add green and red mini candies for the holidays. Or pipe on a simple message of love to show you care any time of year.

      I make meat loaf individual servings, awesome.

      • Karen February 15, 2017 at 11:53 am #

        Hi Wanda, How long do you cook the meat loaf ?

        • Lisa September 17, 2017 at 1:58 pm #

          HI was wondering how long to cook also? do you fill each square a little more than half?

          • Trish June 8, 2018 at 7:07 pm #

            I fill it to the top and bake 24-26 minutes. I make turkey meatloaf with lots of ground veggies so sometimes it takes a little longer because of the moisture

        • Mary August 9, 2020 at 6:38 pm #

          Are the recipes included? Everything looks so good!

          • Lynn September 27, 2020 at 5:23 pm #

            I know several of these can be found on the Pampered Chef website.

          • Sheila W November 14, 2021 at 11:38 am #

      • Rebecca November 14, 2017 at 7:07 pm #

        I also make serving size meatloafs… making a whole meatloaf takes me about an hour to an hour and 15 to cook… in the brownie pan takes about 25 to 30 minutes

      • Linda Coyne May 5, 2018 at 6:24 pm #

        How many lbs of Hamburg do you use please?

        • Jenny February 5, 2021 at 8:35 am #

          You can use 1 lb or more, depends on your muffin pan size and if you want to make two pans or more. I use 1 lb of Hamburger, and I make 10 to 12 depending on the ingredients I add. (Like veggies)
          I freeze them and then thaw them mid-week. I love to have them available on a busy night.

          • Rose Swage June 25, 2022 at 2:58 pm #

            Thanks for your suggestion. I am just checking PC right now to place an order. As seniors this is perfect for variety of uses, and also portion control.

          • Jane Averette July 28, 2022 at 4:44 am #

            Oven temp?

      • Teresa West November 1, 2020 at 1:17 pm #

        How long do you cook and what temp??

        • Jenny February 5, 2021 at 8:32 am #

          25 to 30 minutes at 350 F. Use a meat thermometer to be sure.

        • Renee October 12, 2022 at 10:12 pm #

          Can you make cupcakes if you put in cupcake liners ?

      • Kay March 17, 2021 at 7:26 am #

        I love making these little things. It is nice to have a small meal here and there.

        Hi Wanda,
        Do you have a recipe for the meatloaf in the brownie pan?

    • Ramona Zulauf February 15, 2017 at 12:54 am #

      • Stacie July 8, 2017 at 11:47 am #

    Great Ideas! Can’t wait to try some of the recipes.

    • Monica April 28, 2019 at 2:53 pm #

      Great making mini cornbread too.

      • Pamela Dukes September 20, 2020 at 11:47 am #


        • Jenny February 5, 2021 at 8:37 am #

          Insert a toothpick and when it’s clean, your cornbread is done. It’s faster than traditional. Less bulk to cook.

  3. Brenda Jackson October 15, 2016 at 4:06 pm #

    I have the pan. Had it for years. Happy to have new ideas for using it.

    • Vicki July 2, 2022 at 11:18 am #

      Is it easy to clean?

  4. debbie kromka October 23, 2016 at 4:46 pm #

    Omg! They all look great! Had this pan forever but never used it…..looks like it’s time to get it out of the cabinet!

    • Jessica Kidd February 12, 2019 at 1:37 am #

      Have u had fun with it since dragging it out of the cabinet? 🙂

  5. Graciela Warnes October 25, 2016 at 8:22 pm #

    Great ideas! I just received my pan and can’t wait to start using it! I’ll start with the mini-lasagnas. I might use wonton wraps for mini quiches.

  6. Annie December 28, 2016 at 6:58 pm #

    It’s also great for mini meatloafs, brownies, etc. Love my square pan!

    • Jackie January 26, 2017 at 4:33 pm #

      Will you share your mini meatloaf recipe? Want to make tonight for dinner. Thanks!

      • Linda October 27, 2018 at 9:46 am #

        Do the recipes come with the brownie pan when you buy it?

        • Lacea Allen September 8, 2019 at 5:27 pm #

          No, they don’t
          Just Google recipes, there might be others

      • Karen August 26, 2023 at 4:17 pm #

        Which pan would you recommend this one or the brownie bite size pan?

    • Yvonne February 15, 2017 at 6:01 am #

      How long do you cook the brownies in these pans? I seem to always overcook.

      • Grace February 16, 2017 at 1:37 pm #

        I cook mine about 18 minutes

      • Patty February 11, 2018 at 5:40 pm #

        325 degrees

      • Sandi February 27, 2021 at 9:16 am #

        I usually cook for 25 minutes, but after the brownies cool, put them in a container with a piece of bread. After a few hours, they will be the perfect texture!

  7. Sandra Pascual December 28, 2016 at 7:55 pm #

    Everything Pamper Cheft is good. Will try a couple of these recipes.

  8. Becky December 28, 2016 at 11:14 pm #

    I cook my meatloaf in the brownie pan and also cornbread muffins.

  9. Angie December 29, 2016 at 5:41 am #

    I use mine for meatloaf all the time. Individual portions and faster baking time.

    • Jackie January 26, 2017 at 4:34 pm #

      Please share your meatloaf recipe for the brownie pan. Thanks!

      • Lynda February 20, 2017 at 2:36 pm #

        Jackie ~ I have a Quick mini-meatloaf recipe from a diet that I’ve been on, that should also work for this pan, tho I don’t have the pan and am not sure how big the wells are, compared to a muffin tin.

        1 lb lean ground meat (beef / Buffalo ), Finely chopped onion, Salt, Pepper, Garlic powder, / any other spices of your choice, to taste. Mix all ingredients well, divide into equal portions, roll each portion into a ball – this uses a muffin tin instead of the brownie pan. Bake at 350(F) for approx 20 minutes.

        • Trina November 29, 2017 at 12:34 pm #

          Lynda. Thank you.I’m going to try the recipe using a mixture of lean ground beef/turkey. I’m on a low calorie diet and this will help for variety and portion control.

    • Sonia February 14, 2017 at 6:44 pm #

      It is also great to make meatloaf sliders. Just put your mini meatloaf on a roll.

  10. Sherry Bare December 29, 2016 at 9:16 am #

    Thanks for the ideas! I have the pan but just not motivated to bake lately…. These recipes got me a little excited!

    • Sherri July 31, 2019 at 12:40 pm #

      individual size pineapple upside down cakes are good too

    You usually find one or two recipes you want to try. I want to try all twelve of these! And the pan makes it so precise and easy to serve. After all, that’s why they call it Pampered Chef, right!

  16. Susan Hale February 14, 2017 at 5:58 pm #

    The 2 ingredient Pumpkin cakes are delicious.
    Top them off with the Cinnamon whipped cream made with the whipped cream maker. Yummy!
    My 36 yr old son requested them for his birthday.

  17. Ann Sichko February 14, 2017 at 6:48 pm #

    • Magriet June 29, 2017 at 9:10 am #

      Goodday Ann,

      How long do you bake you’re brownies in this pan? I have one if them but it seems that I overcook my brownies all the time.

      • Cheryl Russell August 31, 2018 at 7:58 pm #

        I did mine at 20 min and rhey came out perfect!

        • Judy July 2, 2022 at 2:12 pm #

          Why would mine stick? Used spray and tried to release but wouldn’t come out!!!!

  18. Deborah Cross February 14, 2017 at 6:49 pm #

    Some great ideas I will have to try some.. Maybe substitute some Vegetarian substitutes for a quick lunch or snack for my granddaughter

  19. Nicola February 14, 2017 at 7:41 pm #

  20. Lois Spaay February 14, 2017 at 8:31 pm #

    Mini omelettes and meatloaves are excellent in here!

  21. Lorraine Hedrick February 14, 2017 at 8:53 pm #

    These are awesome, can’t wait to try them! I like to use mine for mini omlets with cheese, spinach and tomato in half and green peppers and onions in the other half. Breakfast is ready to take to work!

  22. LouAnn Brown February 15, 2017 at 5:37 am #

    I use mine for cupcakes all the time! You can use the round paper liners too. Square cupcakes are easier to eat:)

    • Shelley December 22, 2021 at 11:12 pm #

      Do you use the jumbo size cupcake liners? My brownies seem equivalent to 2 batter wise. My regular cupcake liners seem to small or will they expand?

  23. Ruth February 15, 2017 at 8:15 am #

    Love this pan for individual baked goods. Always glad to have more ideas

  24. Laura February 15, 2017 at 8:24 am #

    I bought one and tried to bake some brownies in them and they turned out like hockey pucks

    • Nancy February 16, 2017 at 1:32 pm #

      Hi Laura, did you reduce the baking time? If not, then try that it should work.

  25. ANITA KOPACZEWSKI February 15, 2017 at 11:34 am #

    I use it for Eggs Benedict. ‘Perfect size for an individual egg to top the muffin! Works great for a brunch.

    I have made mini banana, zuchinni, pumpkin, apple spice breads. Then wrapped them in colored celophane and ribbon. I gave them as little gifts to neighbors, paperboy, mailman, office staff, etc. And of course ate some myself. YUM!

    Has anyone made pancakes with the brownie pan? And can they tell me how they did it and any tips and tricks?

  31. Abby McKillip October 3, 2017 at 8:25 am #

    I have, baked them at 350 for 12minutes. I like to add things to mine, sausage, bacon, fruit. Just be sure to spray the pan a bit and the come out great with the mini nylon spatula.

  33. Carla November 27, 2017 at 12:09 pm #

    I’m wanting to bake gingerbread in this from scratch to give as gifts for Christmas. How long should I bake them? I figure fill them like you would the brownies. Do I put it at lower temperature than the recipe requires?

  34. Debi December 1, 2017 at 9:31 am #

    Would you please post the recipe for the stuffing cups? The one the button takes you to uses the deep covered baker. (I’m sure it just adjusts the baking time, but…)Thanks!

    • Pampered Chef December 1, 2017 at 11:44 am #

      Thanks for drawing that to our attention! To make the stuffing in the Brownie Pan, bake it, uncovered, at 350 degrees, for 15 minutes.

    How long does it take to ship the brownie pan & the cost

  37. Mary krug March 20, 2018 at 6:58 pm #

    21.00 for the pan and depending where you live 3-5 days

  38. Gail September 22, 2018 at 3:07 am #

    Can the pumpkin cakes be made ahead and frozen for a week or so?

  39. kathleen November 26, 2018 at 6:00 pm #

    do you have to grease/flour the pan prior to baking brownies or cakes, muffins ,etc? is it non stick??

    • Jessica Kidd February 12, 2019 at 1:55 am #

      Hi Kathleen, they ARE nonstick. The brownie pan, muffin pan and mini muffin pan are all heavy-duty steel material- oven safe to 450°F & heats quickly. Plus, these pans are durable and made to last.
      The Nonstick coating ensures an even bake, easy release, and an effortless cleanup.
      They are also safe to use in conventional & convection ovens, or u can place in refrigerator or freezer.

  40. Bette Gammell March 18, 2019 at 6:00 pm #

    I’ve made chocolate cakes.. banana pecan bread,… strawberry cakes… banana blueberry cakes… strawberry banana… and this morning. Banana, strawberry, blueberry for breakfast.
    My husband says the size is perfect for his lunches.

    We like to make smashed potatoes. Boil new potatoes add a dab of ghee or butter and salt and pepper to the squares and smash a potato in each one. About 25 min at 400.

    • Debbie April 23, 2021 at 3:12 pm #

  53. Barbara Roe October 28, 2021 at 9:41 pm #
