I use cast iron...I LOVE it! If you don't know how to season it contact me...it's my specialty. I buy them inexpensively from antique stores (or thrift stores, but antique stores carry a better selection). Then I clean them up (ie. get the rust off!) and season them. Viola!!! I've got great, usable pans that don't stick. I even have one that's imprinted 1860 on it!
Well it would have been fine round loaves of bread,IF I had not let it rise as much on the second rising ( lol. It collapsed). And then I had forgotten to raise the rack so the bottom burned. ) Ok..... so that taught me something ~~~
Well its edible if i trim the bottom off each slice. It still tasted good and is a bit too chewy, but it's only me eating it, luckily. Its been so long since I have baked much of anything. This stove, electric, small is a challenge and the temp I have to set 50 degrees cooler and bake more slowly too... a big challenge~
Actually eating the bread along with lean meats and veggies, is giving me some peppy energy today, so all is not lost. I would like to replace my set of pans with cast iron and enamelled cast iron, and learn to bake in a dutch oven too. That and the enamelled pans and such seem to be a good investment and are much healthier to use than teflon. My teflon set is getting worn out so I feel justified in buying cast iron from now on.
I do have a recipe I created for blender tortillas if anyone is interested~ Just not at home at the moment to be able to post it. You just add more water, but I also adjusted the corn meal to flour ratios, as well, so I can pass on the recipe later on~
The tortillas are really easy and with a big frying pan, you can make really big diameter ones for wraps and burritos.
Does anyone have a good recipe for homemade ....... oh heck, I cannot remember the word...... tamales, thats it~ Ok, ok, I need more coffee~ Hope there is a pot on in the kitchen~
