LIGHT, FLUFFY AND LOVELY!
For the holidays, one of the many thoughtful gifts I received from my husband was cast iron cookware. He got me a Dutch oven and a large cast iron skillet. It was even better than my uninterrupted 3-hour nap and that is extremely hard to beat. My mom had always stressed to me how amazing cast iron cookware was but in my early adulthood years, my budget for cookware was miniscule. Even if I could have afforded cast iron cookware, I wouldn’t have known how to harness its full amazing potential.
This is the kind of skillet you can put into your oven. And the result of making a cake like this in your cast iron skillet instead of any old cake pan makes this cake more amazing than you can ever imagine. Probably because with cast iron, even the edges of the cake taste moist. This will happen if you bake brownies in it too, incidentally. The whole thing stays moist through and through. No more fighting over the center piece for your kids. Every morsel of this is magic. What’s that? No cast iron in your kitchen? Well, don’t miss out on this cake just because of that. I’ve got some suggestions for you. Let’s go to the next page (click the Next button below) to discover how to make this Old Fashioned Sugar Cake.
