With youngest daughter home for a visit this week, we had a backyard barbecue on Sunday afternoon and invited our oldest daughter and her family, our nephew and his family, and our youngest’s best friend and her family.
For dessert I made some brownies and this Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk Cake from Joy the Baker
that I found on Pinterest.
It’s a yummy, not too sweet dessert.
I think it would even be a good breakfast coffee cake.
I’m going to try it again with different fruits, maybe some plums, next time.
This recipe is a keeper!
On another note, a while ago I gave all of our nonstick skillets to the Goodwill.
I didn’t like that they are possibly linked to negative health side effects, or that I had to worry about the Hubs overheating them or accidently scratching them when he cooked breakfast, which he likes to do.
I already had a cast iron grill pan, so I bought an 11 inch Lodge cast iron skillet, seen in the photo above, and a round 11 inch griddle pan. (TJ Maxx had them for 11.99)
I researched how to keep the cast iron from rusting, how to clean it and how to keep it well seasoned.
I’m loving it!
I’ve never had crepes turn out better than I did on that griddle pan.
Nothing sticks…eggs, frittatas, pancakes, crepes, cakes, all turn out great and don’t stick!
The key is to never use soap on it, just clean it with hot water.
After that I dry it with a paper towel, then put a little canola oil on a paper towel and wipe it with that.
I will then set it in a warm oven for a few minutes, turn the oven off, and it’s ready for it’s next use.
So, get out your Granny’s old cast iron skillet, or get yourself one, (they’re very affordable), and try this recipe.
