Smile Hi

I've never been in a forum before so I hope I'm doing this right.

I have a glass top stove that I love. Unfortunately, the oven quit on me today. I can get a new heating element tomorrow but I have company coming tonight and need to bake cornbread. I have a heat diffuser and have used cast iron to fry and cook with on top. Can I bake on top of it too? The recipe calls for a 400 degree oven. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I'm hoping to learn and share a lot on this site!

Connie

Welcome to DC Miss Connie. My suggestion is just make your regular cornbread batter and spoon it into a little hot oil in your cast iron skillet. With a little butter spread on top it will be delicious!! Also, a change of pace from baked in the oven bread!


Have Fun & Enjoy!!

Thank you for the suggestion and the warm welcome! I used a diffuser, turned the burner on low and kept a close eye on it. It turned out just fine! Whew!!! Thanks for the help!

Hi, Connie. Welcome to DC. Glad your little "situation" turned out well. Sometimes, for a change of pace, I stir up a batch of my regular cornbread batter and spoon it on a hot, greased griddle. A little like pancakes. They puff up nice and are fun to eat instead of slices of cornbread the traditional way. Fun when we have chili, too.

Smile Baking on glass top w/cast iron

Unfortunately, the cost of a new element is not within my budget, so I have been experimenting all week. I think I have the hang of this now. The pictures on here helped immensely! I have baked a cake, a pie and cookies. I have to admit tho, the cookies were a bit harder to bake. I guess it was because they were so small. I burned two batches before I figured out what temp to use. Hopefully, I'll be able to afford a new element before the holidays. I hate to think about trying to bake a turkey, dressing and rolls! LOL!

I really enjoy reading thru this site. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Connie
