Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread
My mother gave both addROC and I gift certificates to the hot new kitchen store in SoHo, Sur La Table.
Naturally, addROC and I went apeshit.
After going to the store twice, contemplating this and that, checking out the SILPATS and bar spoons...we got a few very choice items.
addROC's favorite: The Cast Iron Skillet.
While, at first, this little toy just reminded me of cowboy eggs and French people, I've found that I've become quite fond of this heavy-ass pan.
So, when addROC made chili, we had to make cornbread. Off I went, mixing up the dry ingredients, like so:
Then, the wet ingredients:
And then, POP, into the oven, pan and all!
So fun, right? A pan, that goes in the oven and doesn't melt?!
And, it produced this gem-of-a-hunk-of cornbread:
Now, all's I need is to make cowboy eggs and to find some French people to enjoy them with me!
But, for now, cornbread will have to do.
