Ever since I splurged on a Cast Iron Griddle, two things have happened:
- I can make three times as many pancakes at one time since the griddle covers two burners.
- My pancakes are three times as tasty.
Cast iron is simply the BEST.
There’s just something about how food tastes when cooked on cast iron. It is so good. (Unless it gets too hot. Then the food blackens and tastes, you know, blackened. I know this too well. Turn the burners up to hi heat to get the griddle hot, then turn them down to medium to maintain heat without burning your food.)
I’ve avoided Teflon for the past ten years or so – but for making pancakes, I struggled to find a good alternative. A well-buttered stainless steel skillet sort of works, but it’s not great. How in the world did people make pancakes before Teflon??! Cast iron, of course. My small cast iron skillet worked wonderfully, but I could only make one pancake at a time.
Do you know how long it takes to feed my family when I can only make one pancake at a time? Oy.
Big cast iron griddle to the rescue. Beyond pancakes, I also use this griddle for grilled cheese sandwiches. The best! (Both in taste and in the fact that I can whip out six sandwiches at once.)
I wanted to let you know that this Lodge Cast Iron Griddle is something to check it out. Help yourself to one, save yourself a lot of time, and make your family the best pancakes ever. Just don’t drop it on your foot. This sucker is heavy!
P.S. This is our favorite pancake recipe. We also love Quick Mix Pancakes. And while I’m sharing recipes, I’ll remind you that we are loving this Raspberry Pancake and Waffle Syrup right now. Mmm!
