I want to start expanding my collection of cast iron cookware. Presently, I have a 12" dutch oven and a 10" skillet.
I've been thinking about getting a cast iron muffin pan and maybe a cornbread pan. But I'm confused about how to use these items. I know these breads can all be baked in the dutch, but if I'm using the dutch for my main course, how do I bake with these without an oven? Don't you need top heat to get the tops of the muffins/breads baked properly? You don't just have the open pans sit on top of the coals, do you? Does it mean that I can't have muffins or corn bread with my meal if I'm using my dutch for something else?
And of course, I'm not allowing for using the oven in the kitchen. What fun would that be?
