Have you seen #lenouveaubleu – Le Creuset’s latest blue colour? I recently received a couple of these pieces to work with, including the Iron handle cast iron skillet in Blueberry and was excited to test it out. Of course, with the lovely smooth black interior enamel makes it ideal for all types of stovetop frying and searing (and it makes a mean frittata!) but I was interested in experimenting with it as a cake or cookie pan.
A couple of summers ago, when I was in France, I was testing recipes for cakes and didn’t own a cake pan that was the right dimensions. I did, however, own a cast iron skillet that was just about the right diameter and decided to test the recipes using that. I was really happy with the results (even heat distribution is so important for baking). Recently, I tried Dorie Greenspan’s Cast Iron Pan Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars with good success so I’m pretty convinced of the usefulness of a cast-iron skillet as a baking tin!
