Using the 8 inch square pan on the stove burner

This is a cast iron 8 inch square cake pan.

I was just demonstrating that it can be used on the stovetop, as a small skillet.

I actually used it after this photo was taken, to make a base for a seafood chowder.

To make a base, you melt 2 tbsp butter in the pan, then whisk in 2 tbsp flour, and then about 2 cups milk.

This is also a base for gravy, but what you want is a thick paste, which you then add to your chowder.
