It's important to wait until your skillet has had time to cool prior to cleaning after you've cooked your cast iron skillet meals.
Fall is officially here and with it comes the cooler weather. Fortunately, GRIZZLY Cookware has the American made cast iron cookware you need to make decadent desserts to keep you and your family nice and cozy. Are your taste buds already gearing up for the ride? Here are three awesomely sweet dessert recipes you can make right in your GRIZZLY Cast Iron Cookware.
Apple Cinnamon German Pancake
A German pancake, also known as a Dutch Baby pancake or a Bismarck, is a type of popover. Popovers are the American version of Yorkshire pudding. They have a buttery taste, which makes them great for sweet additions like cinnamon sugar and apples.
To make an apple cinnamon German pancake in your American made cast iron cookware from GRIZZLY, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 tablespoons butter
- A dash of salt
For the apple cinnamon topping, you will need:
- 2 apples, skinned, cored, and sliced into wedges
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
To begin baking your German pancake, preheat your oven to 425℉ . Place the butter into your American made cast iron cookware until the butter is completely melted. In a bowl, mix together eggs, vanilla, and milk. Slowly add in the flour and salt. Mix until smooth. Pour the batter into your cast iron cookware over the melted butter and bake for 22 to 27 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
While your German pancake is baking, prepare the topping. In a medium saucepan over low heat, add butter, apples, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir the topping occasionally until apples are softened. When the German pancake is finished, add the softened apple cinnamon topping to serve.
Cast Iron Skillet S'mores
Fall is the best time of the year to go camping, and you can bring the joy of camping right indoors with these cast iron skillet S’mores. To make this treat, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 1 box of graham crackers
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 24 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 10 ounces of large marshmallows
To begin your S'mores adventure, preheat your oven to 450℉. Once the oven is preheated, preheat a 10 inch cast iron skillet for five minutes. Remove your American made cast iron cookware from the oven and melt the butter in the skillet to coat it. Pour chocolate chips into the skillet and coat the pan evenly. Top the chocolate chips with marshmallows. Bake your S'mores for 7 to 10 minutes until the marshmallows are golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve with graham crackers.
Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie
If you love chocolate chip cookies, you're not alone. About 13.5% of American adults admit to having eaten 20 or more chocolate chip cookies in one sitting. For when your cookie craving truly rivals Cookie Monster, you can make a large chocolate chip cookie right in a GRIZZLY Cookware 10 inch cast iron skillet. To make this enormous cookie, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in 2 teaspoons hot water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat your oven to 350℉. Cream together your butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time and stir in the vanilla. Dissolve your baking soda in hot water and add to batter. Add salt to your batter. Stir in the flour and chocolate chips. Next, you’re going to butter a 10 inch cast iron skillet. Pat your cookie dough evenly into the skillet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until edges are lightly browned.
When finished, remove the skillet from the oven and remove the cookie from the skillet. Allow the cookie to cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Cut to serve.
