PME Level Baking Belt – Fits 20cm Round Tin
Product number: 32124
Like a thermal jacket for your cake tin, PME’s triple-layer Level Baking Belt will insulate your tin to keep it cooler at the edges so your cake cooks evenly without scorching, cracking on top, drying out or rising too much in the centre. It’s particularly useful for fruit cakes that need long cooking times, or layers of sponge destined for stacking.
What you do
Simply soak the belt in cold water and remove the excess without wringing, then wrap around the cake tin and secure using the loops – this version fits tins 8-20cm Dia. that are at least 8cm (3″) deep; and square tins from 8-15cm square (3-6″) – then bake your cake as per the recipe.
How it works:
The fabric and its dampened inner wadding reflect heat and insulate the tin so the heat of your oven is forced to cook the mixture evenly from the base of the tin upwards for a more even, level bake.
Please note:do not allow the Baking Belt to make contact with any heating elements, gas flames or the sides of the oven.
