2020 Edition - What are you baking?

SO went overboard today. She made cranberry nut muffins, blueberry muffins, zucchini muffins and a zucchini bread. I think we’re set for a while.

What a lucky man you are, Andy. They all sound so good. If I were your SO, I'd be plastic wrapping, bagging, and freezer hiding a good number of those baked goods for future eating.

Well, beth, Monday has come and gone. I hope your DH had a very nice birthday...and praised you up one side and down the other for that German Chocolate cake that you made for him.

If all goes as planned I will be baking peanut butter cup cakes. Searching for a recipe now.

Thanks, CG. Some of them are going to my sister and neighbors. The rest are wrapped and frozen for future breakfasts.

Glad to hear that, beth!


I made a pan of corn bread to go with our supper tonight. The recipe called for a 10" cast iron skillet. I had to decide between a 9" and a 12". Chose the smaller one. While it was very tasty, it probably would be better in something 10".

Just curious. Why do you believe that it would have been better in the larger skillet? Is it a quantity adjustment thing?

Yup, Ross. While fully baked, the middle was way too dense and almost pasty. In spite of that, we both went back for seconds!

I figure I need a new 10" CI pan, right? Then I measured my Staub "All Day" pan - it's 10". The sides don't slope like a skillet, so it might be a challenge to get a slice out. But at least it's 10"!

Thank you for the reply..

I make corn bread, etc., in my 8" CI pan..
Of course, in my old age, I now use Krusteaz Honey Corn Bread mix. I use a half package and haven't had density problem.

Every recipe is not the same volume. I make a cornbread the I cook in my 12" CI skillet. However, I usually make it in muffin form.

CG... Sincere apologies.. Unintentionally, I told a fib..

For half batch corn bread, I use a Winton 6X6 aluminum pan.

At one time I had 2 8" CI pans and used those for corn bread instead of one big pan. It was perfect! Unfortunately, one left with my brother and never came back.

Since my loaf of bread was too late to use for tonight's supper, I just might have to make BLT's on Tuesday.

I baked some bread sticks, from some WW and rye flours I ground today from the whole berries (I had run out of both, so I ground about another 4 lbs of each), and the end of the buttermilk, I had when I made another half gallon of it a couple of days ago.
