PME Level Baking Belt - Fits 20cm Round Tin

Product number: 32124

Like a thermal jacket for your cake tin, PME’s triple-layer Level Baking Belt will insulate your tin to keep it cooler at the edges so your cake cooks evenly without scorching, cracking on top, drying out or rising too much in the centre. It’s particularly useful for fruit cakes that need long cooking times, or layers of sponge destined for stacking.

What you do

Simply soak the belt in cold water and remove the excess without wringing, then wrap around the cake tin and secure using the loops – this version fits tins 8-20cm Dia. that are at least 8cm (3") deep; and square tins from 8-15cm square (3-6") – then bake your cake as per the recipe.

How it works:

The fabric and its dampened inner wadding reflect heat and insulate the tin so the heat of your oven is forced to cook the mixture evenly from the base of the tin upwards for a more even, level bake.

Please note:do not allow the Baking Belt to make contact with any heating elements, gas flames or the sides of the oven.

I wanted to try this belt out before writing a review. Christmas cookery for me starts with Delia's Creole Christmas cake. Every year i am taking this cake out of the oven earlier than instructed because it is over browned quite easily. This year, dumped the belt in water, squeezed it gently and wrapped it aroung the tin. I put it in the oven for the four hours instructed and 'woe and behold' it came out not only level but gently browned ! Amazing! Love it!

Needed this so many times .This was so easy to use no struggling cutting and tying brown paper to protect my Christmas cake as it cooked . Simple to fit , the cake was perfectly flat ready to marzipan. Wish this had been around for a long time so hope it stays on Lakeland shelves. Only criticism is the cotton has caught and burnt in places during cooking but wouldn’t put me off using or buying again.
