Ingredients:  
1 1/2 Cups semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup unsalted butter
4 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350
Combine chocolate chips and butter in a medium-size microwavable bowl. Microwave on high until melted and smooth, about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Cool 10 minutes.

Beat eggs, sugar, and light brown sugar in the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment on medium speed until thick and creamy, about 5 minutes. Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture and melted chocolate mixture to egg mixture in batches, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat on low speed just until each is incorporated. Pour batter into a 12-inch cast-iron skillet.

Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs, about 40 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool slightly.

Frosting
Combine granulated sugar, butter, milk, cocoa, flour, and salt in a small saucepan over medium. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil, about 5 minutes. Cook, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute (it will be a bit thin). Pour frosting over warm cake. Sprinkle with toasted pecans. Serve warm with ice cream.
