One of the older ladies from my church gave me a homemade, handwritten cookbook for my wedding of all her best recipes. In several of the cake and brownie recipes she says to bake in a "dripper pan". Does anyone knows what that is? Thanks!
"A cake drip pan is a pan that is placed under a cake as it cooks to keep the cake from dripping over the edges and onto the oven floor. Many times a cake drip pan is an aluminum foil pan." From Ask.com
I saw this as well when I was searching, but she mentions putting the batter directly into a dripper pan, so I was wondering if she was talking about some kind of specific bakeware I'm not familiar with.
Taking a stab in the dark I thought this might be a small roasting pan. Yahoo Answers has some responses.. a pan you put inside your roasting pan to catch juices for gravy making.
Older cooks roasted meat on racks set into drip pans. Drip pans were usually about 9 x 13 x 2 inches deep so you could make a decent yorkshire pudding using the drippings.
Thanks everyone, I guess I'll just try a regular baking pan and see how it goes.
