This morning I made ebelskivers in the cast iron pan. They get a nice, not almost crispy edge (kinda like the very edge of a pancake) and I don’t get that with my electric pans. Some electric pans may cook them like that but mine doesn’t.
A reader had told me that the middle one gets done first. It does! I’m glad I knew that. I suppose it’s because the middle one is surrounded with cast iron and has no outside edges. The one near the handle is the slowest to cook . . maybe because the long handle absorbs the heat. I have no idea . . just sharing that observation.
The cast iron pan makesme happy .. whether it’s really any different or not as far as it cooks.
What does NOT make me happy is this!
I’m sure this pan had been used on a gas stove and this is what I get to clean up. Every skillet that had been used on the gas stove in Texas left this same kind of mess on the stove.
I waited for the stove to cool down . . I’m sure it’s cool now so it’s time to pay the piper and spend the next half hour scrubbing the stove. A reader had told me oven cleaner would do the trick but I never remembered to buy oven cleaner.
OK . . done
There are some stains but most of those were on there already . . well, some of them were. It’s clean enough and hopefully I don’t have to use it much longer.
