You probably already knew that you could bake in a cast iron pan, which is why this is a good place to start. Cornbread and other southern foods are practically synonymous with cast iron cookware. But have you thought about all the other things you can bake in one of these circular wonders?
Cast iron pans can take and bake anything you want, from scrumptious casseroles to cozy banana bread to savory quiches. They can even help you put together a hearty deep dish pizza!
But don't forget to save room for dessert!
Skillet chocolate chip brownies are a great example of a dessert currently growing in popularity, with restaurants all over the country starting to offer them, for two good reasons.
The first is the double dose of chocolate, obviously. Second is the memories, either earned or imagined, that a hot little 7" skillet can drum up in the mind of the diner.
Throw some ice cream on top and you've got a tasty treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth and warm your heart. Um, yes please!
