yea it will work, I would spray it really well,and if it is really tall you might put something in it to help the center bake..why a coffee tin though??

Why in the first place are you going to bake in a coffee tin?

I wouldn't do it, not because it wouldn't work, but because it isn't made to bake in. By heating up the can you could release toxins/metal into your cake.

It should work, I have baked in soup cans and they turned out great. Just spray them well.

I have made bread in coffee tins and soup cans. It has always worked well but I never tried a cake.

I'm going to bake cakes in soup cans next week. It was suggested to me by someone on this forum as an easy way to get a cylindrical shape since I've never carved before.

Line it with parchment

I'm inquiring for the cylindrical shape....well maybe I'll try it. I'm going to make a practice one first anyhow just to be sure! Unless anyone knows a better way to get the shapre I`m looking for!!! At least without layering high and carving!
Thanks for your input!

My grandma used to make a brown bread in a coffee can, you should be fine.

Well it worked the cake turned out! I cooked slowly for awhile to ensure the center would cook to. I ended up using an empty can of baby formula (don't worry not the cardboard kind like pringles tins)! I will post pics later!
