Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice: Fall Baking with Cast Iron
Is there any spice as synonymous with autumn as cinnamon? Whether baked into pastry or sprinkled into savory dishes, the irresistibly tantalizing aroma evokes feelings of comfort and coziness. And in addition to stimulating our appetites, cinnamon is said to provide health benefits, too, as it is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. We just know that we love it! Try some of our favorite recipes featuring this essential fall seasoning. For optimal results, try baking in cast iron for steady, even heat and remarkable results.
Classic Cinnamon Rolls
The best way we know to start the weekend off right is baking a batch of these gooey, delectable homemade treats in a cast iron casserole. As the mouthwatering fragrance fills your kitchen, it’s hard to wait for the rolls to cool enough to add the decadent cream cheese frosting.
A breakfast favorite of retired Lodge CEO Henry Lodge and his family, these tasty twists evolved from a Martha White cinnamon rolls recipe. Fun to bake for all ages, you can get creative with the leftover dough scraps and experiment with other shapes and sizes. Using a seasoned cast iron baking pan provides consistent, even cooking.
Spiced Carrot Cake
This classic All-American cake is a creamy, dreamy delight. Packed with walnuts and carrots and spiced with cinnamon, sweet-and-tangy cream cheese frosting adds a crowning touch to this rich, indulgently delicious dessert. Baking in a cast iron fluted cake pan is similar to baking in other cake pans, with a few key differences.
