Can I use a regular baking dish instead of a cast-iron skillet?

"If a recipe calls for baking in a cast-iron skillet, can I use a regular baking dish instead?" 

Cast iron is slower to heat, but holds heat better than many other surfaces. When a recipe calls for cast iron, but you use another material, you may have to bake it longer or raise the temperature by about 25 degrees to get the same outcome.
