Cornbread cooked in an iron skillet is simply just the very best. But, do you ever use your iron skillet for everything other than frying rooster or baking bread? 

For some sweet assortment, check out employing that effectively-seasoned skillet to make a flavor tempting treat. 

To time your iron skillet or to retain a seasoned skillet, you ought to use a coating of vegetable or canola oil to the whole surface and bake in the oven at 450 levels for about an hour.
