Or perhaps not.
Baking tins….. I had such a shock yesterday, I came over all peculiar.
I forgot that I had already bought two flat baking trays when we moved in for the cooker that was already here (and I only used twice). I also have two rather nice sized ceramic dishes which will be ideal for pastas, lasagnes, roasting potatoes, McCheeses or cottage pies.
All I really need is a bun tin for mince pies or small fairy cakes, and two 7″ sponge tins for, well, sponges.
Google image: I’ll post one of my own when I’ve cooked it.
The ones I had before were non stick and had removable bases, so I’d line the bottom with a circle of greaseproof paper and when the cake was cooked, turn it out without it sticking to the sides.
I’ll repeat that slowly…….. e i g h t p o u n d s and s i x t y p e n c e each.
They are still on the shelf in the shop.
The bun tin was £9.
So is that.
And as for a cake storage tin at £15, well forget it.
Plan B (another one):
We’re off to the market in Boston today for a variety of things, and I know several places where I can get the baking tins I’m after at a sensible price. Also for a couple of pounds I should be able to get a cake storage tin/container.
It’s been a good day Michael. I have baking tins, a hand mixer and also a cake box to store the spoils in. Now I just need to make them once the new cooker arrives. Pics of course will follow in due course!
I will expect no less.
Haha! Hubby has asked me not to go too mad as he will feel duty bound to eat them all!
See that statement alone tells me the quality of your cooking 🥘 I bet he’s looking forward to it.
I don’t do so badly. The number of meals I’ve cooked that we’ve been unable to eat (even including the aborted curry-to-become-sweet-and-sour at MOH’s) you can count on one hand.
I LOVE cake pans & have collected them for years, so now, I have a cupboard devoted to them. My favorites are make by Nordic Ware and I have several ‘cupcake’ and bundt pans. The ones you are planning for are much more practical.
I bought a couple of non stick ones for a pound each today. They don’t have the removable bottoms, but I’ve had these before and as I line them anyway, I shouldn’t have a problem. I even treated myself to a little hand mixer! I’m not going to know myself!!!
I use a parchment paper with non-decorative pans – cookies as well as cakes. But at the moment, I’m not baking much because my husband was having issues with buttoning his trousers….
Hurrah for elasticated waists!!
I, for one, love them – particularly at holiday times.
Apart from my jeans, I live in them.
Have you tried jeggings? They look like skinny jeans, but are really yoga pants….
I bought a pair but couldn’t try them on in the shop so when I got them home, found them uncomfortable so took them back. I have got a couple of good quality leggings though as well as my joggers.
Bummer, I love mine.
