A Desperate Disappointed Halogeniuse who needs HELP!

Post  clasiechick1 on 16.01.11 3:23

Hi! I am new at this Halogen cooking and I am struggling! I tried to cook a apple pie, which I was baking from scratch ( as I bake all the time, in my conventional oven) but after following the instructions in my guide book, I discovered that the top of the pie was cooked, but the bottom pastry was still uncooked! why if it is supposed to distribute heat evenly is this! also the guide book does not tell you to turn your chicken or your meat over! yet I find that if you dont it does not cook properly! my Halogen is a 1300 wattage. please advice!

Hi

None of the guide books are up to much which is why this forum exists. Baking can be a particular bug-bear. The manufacturers claims for cooking times are somewhat over-ambitious.
When baking, always preheat the oven and try a lower temperature for a little longer. If you have an extender ring use the top rack with the ring on for better air circulation. With the heat source in the top, it can be necessary to cover the top of your food with foil to stop it getting overcooked before the base is cooked.
Roasts do require to be turned for even cooking but they do taste great and always turn out really moist.
Ovens do vary so what works for one may not work for another - don't give up - the results are worth the effort.

I have a suggestion out from experience: use silicone molds. Since I starting using them, I have had no more issues with "golden tops, raw bottoms"... There is also a golden rule: better two cakes(or anything) in two small moulds, than one in a big one. Better to bake five muffins than one big sponge cake! Anyway, big containers can also be used of course, only perhaps more adjustements are needed.
