Julia, I didn't have cookery lessons at school - not sure if it was because I was in the brainy group or whether they thought I'd never have a man to bake for LOL
I was occassionally allowed to make a tray bake at home and wiped tin over with the stork wrapper.
Mum was a very good baker, had the same tins all her life and greased the lining paper. Sprouts were always mushy though :-0

Sue Maid, I do mean bake at home in the oven. Many people here do not do home baking any more, for various reasons.

Scozz, it means the tin has a loose bottom for easy removal of the cooked cake

Call me old fashioned I don't use silicone and definately always line and grease my tins

I can remember being taught this in "Cookery" lessons at school. I just do it as a matter of course.
I remember being in the Co-op one morning as they unwrapped something, and it was wrapped in brown Kraft paper. I managed to cadge it for lining my Christmas Cake tin.
I do have silicone ones, so probably wouldn't do it with them.

Yes Island, dash those non-members.

Morning Julia

I rarely bake a cake but use a silicone mould when I do. I can't be faffed with greasing paper.

Dash those non members eh? ;-)

I do!!!


Julia Report 13 Nov 2012 10:11

Anyone that bakes, do you still grease and LINE your large cake tin.
Despite having non stick, and with loose bottoms, and silicone types, I find myself still doing this.
Old habits die hard.
