Seeking recommendations for pot for baking cobblers

claycarlton | Jun 1, 201402:28 PM     6

Hi,

I am living in So Leyte, rural island here in the Philippines. I am trying to assist the Children's Feeding Centers, here begining with the 15 in Padre Burgos, So Leyte. Since powdered milk is beyond the means of most young Filipino families, we have elected to go with a a "Mongo Bread" type pastry which we propose to bake in a "cast iron skillet" in a wood fire...which is all that is available to the feeding centers. The Mongo Bread Pastry will supply all the protein, vitamins and necessary nutrients required by pre-school children.

We are looking for expertise on preparing a 1.5 in bean paste cobbler, in a wood fire. Specifically, should we be ordering an enamel covered pot. Also, mos tof the dutch oven designs are quite deep. We are looking for a larger cooking surface, on which to bake the cobbler/pastry, as large diameter dutch ovens, are heavy and difficult for the Filipino women to handle.

I have attached an idea for the cobbler portions, using a preformed "muffin" design.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Appx one third of all Filipino children are malnourished.
