I have a recipe for pound cake that I love, but I make it in a tube pan. I would like to make it in a 9x13 oblong pan, but don't know how long the cake should bake or if the recipe I use in the tube pan would fit into the oblong pan. Any help would be appreciated.
Will it will fit is an easy one. Go here: http://www.joyofbaking.com/PanSizes.html.
All but the biggest tube pan is less volume than a 9X13X2 pan.
As for how long it will bake- I don't have the ability to compute the exact new bake time; however, the rectangular pan will produce a thinner cake so the baking time will be reduced.
I would put it in for 3/4 the recipe time and then start checking it at 10 minutes intervals.
I know you said you wanted to put it in a 9x13, but if you are just looking for 'something more rectangular', I have had really good luck switching from a tube pan to a standard bread pan. The cooking time actually increased by a few minutes.
It gives me nice 'square' pound cake that I can slice or cut up for other uses.
I know from Can an Angel Food Cake recipe be converted to cupcakes that it is possible to make Angel Food Cake in a form other than a tube pan. However, I'm wondering if there is a reason that Angel Food Cake is usually made in a tube pan. Is there an advantage to that shape? Other cakes are not usually made in a tube pan, so I'm wondering why that's the traditional shape for Angel Food Cake. Is there something about the nature of Angel Food Cake that requires the extra internal heat?
Possible Duplicate: How to make a cake lift equally? I'm working on a layer cake for a birthday and did a test run today since I really have no experience with baking cakes. I had some severe doming issues - I'm actually not sure if the cake rose at all on the sides from where the batter was when it was initially poured into the (9" round dark nonstick metal) pan. As this is a layer cake I really need a flat cake - what can I do to eliminate or at least minimize doming? I'm aware that I can cut the dome off but I'm trying to minimize the amount of shaping that needs to be done.
I generally bake cakes in a microwave (because I don't have an oven) and all of them have a spongy texture. Is there any non-oven method where my cake has a little bakery style cake like structure?
Possible Duplicate: What is the difference between various types of flour? I am baking a Yule Log (Buche de Noel) for solstice and the recipe I generally use calls for a lot of coconut and pecans and I have people who don't like those things coming to dinner, so I am looking for another recipe. The recipes I am finding though all call for cake flour and I don't bake a lot of cakes so I didn't want to buy it just for this recipe, can I turn AP flour into cake flour or what is the difference between the two? I have bread flour and AP flour in the pantry.
Recently I tried to bake a cake in a silicone tube pan. I evenly distributed pastry over the bottom of the pan and put into the oven. While the cake was baking pastry expanded and started to fall over the inner edge of the tube, but not over the outer edge. What have I missed? Does pastry expand unevenly or what? How do I distribute pastry inside the pan so it raises evenly?
with the filling, I think a piping bag can get it in while still semi-liquid. The second idea is to bake the lattice separately. I would weave it, put it on something of the right size (I have a glass cake pan bottom, could use it without attaching the pan wall) and bake. Blindbake the low crust, then fill the pie, then cover with the lattice. The question is, how to attach it to the pie? Has... as a better crust-to-filling ratio, I want to try it with a lattice. But I don't have much experience with double-crust pies, so I am not sure how to make it. My first idea is to blindbake the double crust
This is a three-part question: Which classes of cake are unsuitable for cupcakes? Can I do angel food cake or pound cake? What changes do I need to make when converting a normal cake recipe for cupcakes? Temperature or baking time changes? Roughly how many cupcakes should I expect from a recipe scaled for a 9x9 pan, a 9" springform pan, or a 12 cup Bundt pan? I'm not looking for precise counts, just a rough estimate to the nearest 5 cupcakes.
I recently tried to practice making a Seitan based vegan turkey tube using this recipe. To test results for different cooking methods, I split the final dough in half before baking, made one that was just turkey-dough and one that was a turkey-dough and stuffing roulade. Both turkey loaves came out well. However, the recipe gives instructions on fabricating a kind of "turkey skin." Basically, once the turkey is done baking, remove from oven, place on a pan, wrap with yuba (bean-curd skin from making soy milk, similar to spring roll pastry), brush with sesame oil, and bake until browned
I am hoping to make dough cups using a corn bread style dough. My approximate recipe would be, presumably, to par-bake initially, then fill with a pot pie style liquid/solid mixture, top with a corn bread puck, and bake until it is molten and exterior browns. Standard style corn breads I have eaten are too spongy for this kind of application, and would not be able to be pressed against the walls... is throwing off my search results, I am guessing perhaps there is a molten cup cake batter/dough recipe or something that can be modified to have a savory corn-bread flavor and still really stand up to baking
