Hi everyone

One very useful tip I picked up from Reetas' download from Halogen Cooking Made Simple -

They refer to the steamer tray as a heat diffuser also and when baking a cake on the bottom rack, they placed the steamer/diffuser on the top rack to stop the top cooking too quickly. Haven't tried it yet but it sounds like a great idea.

If you don't have the steamer tray, cover the top rack with foil and poke holes through it for the same effect.

I would also recommend preheating your oven for all baking.

If anyone tries this please let us know how you get on. Good Luck
