Problems cooking Fruit Cakes

Post  Linda53 on 29.01.10 22:41

First topic message reminder :

Cakes in my Flavorwave Turbo – useless, what am I doing wrong? A fruit cake in a 20 cm tin, a mod. oven (150°C) for 1½ hrs. Top was ok but the bottom wasn’t cooked and didn't cook at all. Tin was on the rack in the base of the oven. Same with a choc. cake. Any ideas?

Fruit Cakes

Post  Aldarlo on 04.08.11 18:06

I tried to make a fruit cake today from Sarah Flower Cookbook. Like a lot of people on this forum I had an over brown top and a soggy bottom. I followed the recipe to the letter. I used a silicone loaf tin so I don't know if this made a difference to the finished cake

Hi Aldarlo

for some of us these recipes from books never work. We need to change a few things, make a few adjustments first.

Silicone or tin are both ok to use.

Preheat your oven.

Cook your cake on the high rack with extender ring on top.

Reduce the temperature given in the book and let it cook for longer if needed.

If the top starts to get brown too soon, cover the top of the cake with foil. If you have a tin foil plate , you can use that instead.

Hope this helps

flower

To be truthful I've found that most recipes need a little tweaking here and there, I think the manufacturers live in a different world to us lol, I'd love to know where they get their cooking times fron!!!

Personally speaking I wouldn't be without my HO's I bake bread fresh every day, I have a bread machine but rarely use it, there's something satisfying about kneading the life out of my dough, it's a great stress buster! My loaves take the same time in my HO's as they do in my cooker, I haven't found a difference between silicon or a metal loaf time either.

Thanks for your replies will keep experimenting until I get it right. I have only had my ho for a few days so I am still learning. I am starting to think that I should have bought the bigger siz Smile e.

hi brenda here
have been reading the posts on cooking cakes and had a bit of a giggle SORRY WIMPLEBUM but u made me laugh.
i know its an old post from 2010 but i must add that microwaves dont cook from the inside out so the HO is not opposite to the micro all ovens cook from the outside in SORRY but u made me laugh.
its an old felacy about micros cooking from the inside out.
hope u dont take any offence JOHN
regards brenda
