A skillet is one of the most versatile kitchen accessories you can own. The virtually indestructible pan can be used for numerous different dishes. Due to it being made from cast-iron it enables it to distribute heat evenly and to retain this heat too. 

The list of foods that can be cooked using a cast-iron skillet is endless but here are our best five: 

  • DUTCH BABY
    A dutch baby is a crossover of a pancake and a popover; think savoury Yorkshire pudding! There are plenty of amazing recipes online but we are particularly partial to this one from Nigella
  • CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE CAKE
    One of the pros of cooking a cookie cake in a skillet is that the outside of the cookie goes perfectly crunchy whilst the middle is still soft! We're big fans of this recipe from Bon Appetit.
    • PIZZA
      Similarly to the cookies, using a cast iron pan allows you to get a proper crispy bottom to your pizza, meaning no more soggy bottoms! There's nothing quite like homemade pizza! Try this recipe here!
