very disappointed with it. cake stuck although heavily greased left loads behind , individual divisions would not come out except for 2 had in cupboard for ages before using. otherwise would have returned. Good idea but didn't work for me real shame wouldn't recommend

I bought this tin at the same time as the mini rectangular loaf tin and I am really disappointed in this tin's performance. I hadn't realised that it didn't have loose bottoms like the other tin. It is sold as non-stick but I have found my cakes stick despite greasing and a lot is left behind. I may try lining the tins, which will be a fiddle, but hopefully will solve the problem. Wish I had realised they weren't loose bottomed as I would probably have avoided buying them in favour of something else.

Fabulous - Good Investment”
This is just as sturdy and lovely to bake in as the other tins in the My Kitchen range. I think it's a shame that it doesn't have the loose bottom like the other individual trays but after being well greased the hazelnut chocolate spread brownies that I made just slid out of the tin. Washed up easily, looked as if it hadn't even been used. I would highly recommend this tin to any avid baker - especially whilst it's included in such a fantastic offer.

Excellent...I have made 2 batches of brownies and after greasing the trays they just slid out...ideal investment.

Disaster then sucess”
First batch of cakes was a disaster, although I greased the tin a lot of the mixture stuck to the bottom. On the second batch I put a couple of wax discs that I use for jam making in the bottom of each one and they worked a treat, each cake came out whole. A lovely sturdy tin which worked well once I had got the hang of it.

not impressed on first use - cake release makes a difference”
Made coffee and walnut cakes using a standard 3 egg mix and greased the tins...they looked great but disappointed that every one of the 12 cakes stuck. Not sure why these don't have loose bottoms like the mini loaf tins. Will try them again and grease/line but have to agree with another reviewer it would be great if you could buy liners for these. Lakeland have sent me their cake release which i have now used and it does make a tremendous difference - also used their recipe to make lemon drizzle cakes in the mini loaf tins and they turned out beautifully

I was worried that I might have problems getting my chocolate brownies out of this pan but they just popped out without any trouble or breakages.

I read the reviews on this tin and thought what a good idea, as I do lots of baking for fun raising . I well greased my tin and made carrot cake, they have stuck to the tin . I did have to think twice about buying this at 16.99 now wish I had saved my money

I have just used my tin for the first time and was delighted that my brownies fell out easily. They were just as they should be with a crisp outside and mousse inside. Thank you Lakeland, a great product.

scrummy tray bakes”
This cake tin was coupled with the individual loose bottomed cake tin and they are great I bake numerous tray bakes including things like blackcurrant crumble cake and apple lumberjack cake being about 2 bite big are great for my husbands pack up lunch and with a great variety of things that can be done a good product again I have no issues with sticking and being dishwasher safe is always clean to start again . I cant wait to use the new mini rectangular loaf tin to arrive as I have a lot of loaf recepies to try wouldn't be without this now

I bought this product principally for making individual brownies as I always seem to have trouble cutting them and getting nice straight squares when made in a large pan. This product was so easy to use and although I haven't made brownies yet, I made mini Caramelised pineapple, rum and vanilla upside-down cakes. I greased the pan slightly but the cakes came out beautifully. Great idea and so nice to have little square individual cakes. A lovely sturdy pan too. Love it and looking forward to making my first batch of brownies soon.

I regularly do batch baking for events and this individual tray is perfect, as always superb quality feel, gives a nice even bake and portion size is just right.

Great tray but don't overfill it”
by Amanda J P
This is a great product but I have had to give it only 4 stars due to the lack of guidance/recipes for it. The first time was a disaster as the brownies wouldn't come out of the tray but I tried again with less cake mixture in the tray (only half-filled each compartment) and it was perfect and I therefore have no doubt I will get much use out of it. The size of the brownies is just perfect.I look forward to trying more recipes.

Great for something different”
This tin is good quality and feels robust. I have made chocolate loaf cake and chocolate brownies so far and got good results. I made sure I buttered and floured the tin well, but still found a couple of the brownies were stuck. I am going to try Lakelands cake release to see if that makes a difference. In terms of how much batter to make I found that I had enough using a recipe for a normal 1lb loaf tin. Overall, I am pleased with this product

is it me?”
I must be doing something wrong, because despite spraying each section in the pan with cake release spray all but one of the 12 stuck! I used the same mixture that I've successfully used for a 7in square ginger cake, which always comes out cleanly - any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong? Do I need to adjust the recipe? Also please could you publish a couple of recipes for this baking pan?

After I put in my chocolate cake mixture I suddenly remembered I usually have to grease & line my big cake tin really well because it's a very moist cake and it sticks like crazy so I prepared myself for the worst, expecting to not be able to get them out. Yes the cakes were very soft and a little fragile (the big cake usually is too) but every singe one popped out without a problem AND I'd only lightly greased with butter paper. Also made individual Brownies which were a HIT, no kids flighting over who's piece was biggest! Regular recipes need cooking time tweaks, but work in progress.

Please make this with a loose base”
Great quality tin, nice portion size and worked well for sponges but tried to make perfect squares of millionaires shortbread and difficult to get out. If only it had a loose base like the mini victoria sponge tin

Square Traybake + loaf”
by Angie Corless
Like some of your reviewers I also made a traybake recipe which was far too much, so I made a small loaf cake too with the extra mix. I used cake release and didn't have a problem with sticking. Brilliant!

Still going to rate 5* as I love this cake tin, as it's such a nice change to make little square cakes instead or round, without having to cut pieces from a larger cake. My one gripe, such as it is, is I wish Lakeland sold little squares of baking parchment (matched to the size of this tin) to put in the bottom as my cakes don't always come out cleanly. To ensure a perfect finish I always put parchment in the bottom and it adds loads of time to my prep having to cut out loads of little squares.
