Sue's Easy Pillow Bread

Equipment Corner: A heavy cast iron pan is ideal for pancake making. It distributes heat evenly and allows the pancakes to be cooked uniformly. I like La Creuset cookwares. Coated with a chip- and crack-resistant enamel inside and out, it offers the even heat and gentle cooking of cast-iron without reaction to foods or the usual high maintenance. It is truly an heirloom piece.

Caution: Not all cast iron enamel cookwares are created equal. The cheaper knockouts usually do not have the enamel bonding that is required in such a high heat cooking application, so they frequrently crack and leave unsightly stains on the cookware. A good piece may cost more at the beginning, but it will pay for itself in the long run.
