Nordicware Baking Tins - Spoilt at Christmas
As a keen follower of Great British Bake Off winner, Jo Wheatley, I became aware of the amazing baking tins you can get from American company, Nordic Ware. These tins are not cheap, but boy are they heavy, robust and built to last. I must have been pretty unsubtle, as I received three of these beauties for Christmas. I have yet to try the Ginger Bread House tin, but for last weekend, I put the Christmas Tree and Heritage Bundt tins to the test for a birthday celebration weekend for my friend Duncan.
In the Heritage tin, I made Jo Wheatley's new recipe for a Toffee, Banana & Pecan Bundt Cake.
Drizzled with Waitrose Toffee Sauce and topped off with mini marshmallows.
Next up was Nigella's Spruced Up Vanilla Cake in the Christmas Tree tin. It was a little reminder of the brilliant holiday we had in Austria to celebrate his 40th Birthday, hence the cream 'snow', fir trees and wintry village scene. This cake looks great with a dusting of icing sugar to set the scene.
They both worked out perfectly and were just was needed after a day of activities. Needless to say, I didn't bring any home.
For both the cakes, I greased them well with Wilton Cake Release before adding the cake batter. I took the oven temperatures given as for a static oven, not fan. Large eggs were used in both recipes.
Great tins that get lots of oohs and aahs and recipes that are simple to follow. I think I am smitten with Nordic Ware tins. Which recipe to try in them next?
