I bought a small vintage cars cake pan and used a cupcake recipe in it. It just burnt the shape and the inside was raw. I have had a lot of trouble with these nordicware bundt pans, there's always something that burns, am I missing something? can anyone help me with what kind of recipe I shud use?
Can anyone give me some advice on these. They have a lot of finnicky parts and I want to make some for a friend's son's birthday on Thursday! The particular one I want help with is this one :
Thank you in advance!
You shouldn't have any problems at all with the pans because they're very thick and everything in them bakes beautifully. I think the problem is with your oven. Can you purchase an oven thermometer to see if the heat spikes - thereby burning the autos. I was going to ask if you grease and flour your pans to prevent sticking but that won't help with the excessive heat. Your oven is broken.
Oh no! Maybe I have it in at the wrong heat. The cupcakes baked perfectly. What temp do you normally cook them at? I also buttered and floured the pans but may have missed the nooks and crannies since some of them are quite intricate.
I too love the Nordic Ware pans. The temp should go down and the time should increase. I would try the temp for a cake, somewhere between 325 and 350. On some baked goods, a wrong oven temp is not an issue and then on others, it could cause a disaster. I keep independent thermometers in all of my ovens. You will never know when a temp problem happens. Believe me, I know from experience.
Is there a specific recipe that works well in these? I have had a tough time moving from California to Scotland and I guess altitude difference or something. My US recipes are just failing to rise, burning and just not working out very well.
Any advice would be appreciated!
