There really isn’t a recipe for this post. I’ve had my eye on a Lodge Cast Iron skillet for some time now. After about an hour on Amazon reading reviews & specs, I treated myself to a Lodge L8CB3 Pre-Seasoned Cornbread Wedge Pan. To say I’m excited is an understatement. What drew me to this one in particular were the individual compartments. I love the idea of be able to customize what I’m cooking. This is technically a cornbread skillet but I didn’t buy it for that.
Since I had tons of fruit, I decided on fruit-filled pancakes for my 1st test run. I wish I had a good pancake recipe to share with you but I don’t…yet. I settled on store-bought.
I filled each compartment halfway with pancake mix and added blueberries, raspberries, diced strawberries & diced bananas. Two compartments of each fruit. Again, I was playing around here. I had no expectations on how this was going to turn out. I just wanted to see if it would work. After baking for approximately 25 minutes, I got this:
So basically all the fruit fell to the bottom of the skillet. It might not be as pretty as I expected but how does it taste? I pulled 2 out before it cooled completely and they fell apart in my hand. They tasted great, just like pancakes. The remaining ones, I pulled out easily once cooled. I flipped a few over in the pic below so you can see how the fruit is on the bottom. The skillet I loved. It came pre-seasoned and ready to use. I did have a bit of a hard time cleaning it after but some of that is my fault. I left a couple of the pancakes in there a little too long. Overall though, I am very pleased with my purchase. This is not a sponsored post.
I ate these without syrup. I need to come up with a formal recipe but for a 1st try, I’ll say not bad. If you have any recommendations on what I should try next, add them in the comments section below.
