Vintage Thingie Thursday: Cornbread Pan

Today I'll be joining Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday with one of my fave vintage "thingies": an old cast iron corn bread pan!

I picked this one up a year or so ago at an antique store. I have seen them from time to time, usually they're pretty dirty or even rusty. This one was quite clean on the front. There were a few rusty spots on the backside, but I was able to remove the rust. It's very heavy cast iron. I feel like my wrist is breaking when I try to pull  it one-handed out of my baking cupboard. I just think it's so fun to make food shaped like things!

Aren't these corn sticks so cute?   ha ha.......
I made a Southestern Black Bean Salad the other night and decided to whip up some cornbread to go with it. Yum!

Thanks for visiting me!

My mother used to make her cornbread using one of those cast iron trays and she gave it to me!!
I love it and display it with my silver trays on top of my china cabinet...her cabinet with all her china and chrystal in it...woot,woot!

My mother had one of those too. I loved the cornbread she made in it.

I have had lots of cornbread made in a pan just like this. They are still around, but the one we had was vintage. Made the best bread ever.

Love these pans. I used to have a old one, and when I was younger, did not have good luck with it....wish I still had it today. Happy VTT!

I have one of these that my mother-in-law gave me. It makes the best cornbread!

I have one of those and love the way the cornbread comes out looking like an ear of corn. Your right though, it's very heavy!

What a fun way to make cornbread. And since I like the crunchy part of the cornbread the best this would solve my problem of just eating the tops of the muffins.

I love those corn bread pans. They cook really well too. Your cornbread looks delicious!
