Spray the center of the core,put some of the mix in the center of the core, spray a bit of cooking spray on it and put it in the center of the pan, bake as normal and when the cake is done and cooled, take the cake that was in the core and plug the hole the core left. princess.gif

I purchased one a few years ago and used it once and didn't like it at all.

Now I use a metal flower nail upside down in the pan and then pour the batter into the pan. Works great! I have also used as many as 5 nails in a large pan too.

Yup, I use flower nails too. Usually just one but for 12 inch or larger I use two to three.

Another vote for the flower nail method. I bought those heating cores.....hated them! Flower nails are so easy to use.
