PME Level Baking Belt - Fits 28cm Round Tin

Product number: 32125

Particularly good for fruit cake mixtures that need to cook for a long time – and when you’re cooking several sponge cakes that are going to be stacked, PME’s 43" Baking Belt works like a thermal jacket to protect your cake mix from the fierce heat of the oven. The result? Your cake cooks and rises evenly without cracking on top or being too dry around the edges.

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 23-28cm Dia. that are at least 8cm (3") deep; and square tins from 15-23cm square (6-9") – 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.

Such a helpful product. Really helps to achieve an even bake. Longer bakes helped by the outside protection

This review is for an older version of this product

Very disappointed with this product I made a cake with recipe Used for 40 years at least The cake was not level was cracked and took 30 minutes longer than before and when it cut it was not cooked evenly there were lots of dry spots in it I shall be going back to brown paper and the belt will be binned.

support_agent A note from the team

We’re very sorry to hear this and will be in touch to sort a refund. Our buying team state that one needs to soak the belt in cold water before using, we can only suggest the belt was either too wet or not wet enough and this is why there were issues

"effective for large cakes"

I used 2 of these and joined them together to wrapa arounda 12inch squeare madeira cake. A bit of string held them more securely, and they were much better than my usual folded newspaper!!

Moved house with new oven. Last two years my Creole Christmas cakes were slightly burnt. Purchased this baking belt with some apprehension. I need not have worried. Not only did I leave the cake in the oven for the four hours recipe time but it came out of the oven golden and thoroughly cooked . I have recommended this to many friends and family.

"Great result"

star star star star star

I purchased this belt a while ago, and only just used it. I got an excellent result when baking my Christmas cake (using my go-to recipe by Delia Smith) and got an even colour and no burnt edges. Do read the instructions first, as you need to soak the band in water, before putting around the tin. It also saved me lining the tin with greaseproof paper ( but I lined the base) which I would usually do.
