Recently, I was in search of a pan to make individual small round flat corn bread pones. I thought in might be a nice change from my normal pone of cornbread cut in wedge slices. I shopped through all the cake pans and settle on a whoopie pie pan, it seemed the perfect one for my needs. It took me a month of shopping and watching sales before I finally ordered one.For some reason the name ‘Flats’ was going around in my mind in relation to my recipes I was planning to bake in my new pan.
I was glad to get the pan, but had no need for a batch of cornbread flats, so I made a batch of coconut flats. It’s my recipe. They have a light cakey taste.. (yes, I know they’re not flat-flat, but I still call them coconut flats anyway.)
The next batch that I made I adjusted my recipe and made pumpkin flats. The pumpkin flats have a firm-pie-like texture. They tried to stick to the pan. I got them out quickly. As they cooled, we could easily pick them up and eat them by hand.
My next batch of flats was the muffin ones. I’ve made these a couple of times. They’re a nice change from the norm.
I still haven’t made the cornbread flats, but I plan to someday. I plan to make more different kinds of flats. They’re fun to make and a different way to enjoy regular food stuff.
What do you think, am I an old silly-heart
or do you think flats is a good idea?
update 12-1-2017- Here’s a photo of my cornbread flats. I’ll probably make cornbread flats more than regular cornbread from now on.
