Cast iron baking FAQs
Yes, some recipes may have to be adapted to work in cast iron. For shorter bake times (under 25 minutes) add 5 minutes. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the cake, if it comes out clean the cake is done. If batter sticks to the toothpick, return it to the oven for 5 more minutes before rechecking. Preheating the bakeware will result in crispier crusts, thick cornbread, pizza, and biscuits. You do not have to preheat the bakeware for cakes, pies, and loaf breads.
Although we don’t recommend storing food in cast iron, quiches and pies can be refrigerated uncut in the cookware. It is not recommended to store acidic foods in cast iron, such as leftover lasagnas and cobblers/pies with acidic fruits.
Use a pastry or silicone brush to make sure your nonstick spray is evenly distributed in the wells of the wedge pan, cornstick pan, and holiday pan. It’s also helpful to use a brush when coating the sides of the loaf pan to prevent breads from sticking. Remember to use silicone brushes on preheated cookware. We recommend Baker’s Joy, because it has flour in the spray that goes the extra mile to help prevent sticking. If that isn’t available, simply spray the wells with nonstick spray and sprinkle a small amount of flour over the wells. Use a brush to evenly distribute to all nooks and crannies.
Just like cleaning your cast iron skillet, you want to let the bakeware cool slightly before washing (enough for you to handle safely). Wash in warm-to-hot water and you can use soap if needed. Our pan scraper works great for removing baked-on foods. For more stubborn messes, try a scrub brush. For those small, hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, a firm bristled toothbrush can do the trick.
Yes! It’s very important for breads, cakes, and pies to cool before slicing or cutting. Even though you’ve removed the cast iron from the oven, the food is still baking, so it needs the time to finish the cooking process. For items like breads that need to be transferred to a cooling rack to finish cooling, let it sit in the bakeware for 5-10 minutes before turning out onto a wire cooling rack. Run a butter knife around the edge of the baked good to loosen it up from the bakeware walls and then let it cool.
Some of our bakeware items can be used on the stovetop or grill. We’ve compiled a list for your reference:
