First attempt @ baking something other than pizza. I was hoping that the top would have brown a little more. Heat cast iron with shortening to 425 then add batter and bake for 25 minutes.

  • Mine's pretty much the same, except I use buttermilk instead of milk (makes it lighter), and 2 eggs instead of 1.  Also, I add an 11 oz. can of whole kernel corn and a cup of Monterrey Jack cheese.
