We thought we would take a look at our range of baking tools in today’s blog post, particularly the various types of baking pans, tins and trays that we stock. If you are a keen amateur baking enthusiast, you will no doubt already know just how important the right tin is for your baking project, so read on to find out what we have to offer. We will also cover a great recipe to cook in a baking tin.
Cooking with baking tins
There are so many different baking pans available, but we had to choose just one to feature today -the 12-hole deep baking pan. Here is a recipe for mini pork pies, which are great for summer picnics.
600g pack shortcrust pastry
100g dried breadcrumbs
6 pork sausages
180g bacon lardons
1 egg, beaten
½ tsp mace
½ tsp sage
½ tsp ground black pepper
flour for dusting
Heat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 6. Place a thin strip of greaseproof paper across the centre of each hole in the muffin tin to help lift the pies out after cooking. Cut 12 10cm circles from the pastry and place in the baking pan, over the greaseproof paper.
In a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, sausage meat (removing the skins), bacon, mace, pepper and sage. When all combined, divide the mixture equally into the pies.
For the pie lids, cut 12 7cm circles and brush with beaten egg before pressing down on the top of each pie. Brush the tops with beaten egg and place in the oven to bake for 30 minutes. Lift out of the tray using the paper strips and allow to cool. Serve with homemade chutney or piccalilli.
