stop bloody laughing and help meeeeee

I put the oven on about 180 which is gas 4 or 5 I think

I use a large roasting tin. If you've only got a small one.. half the recipe.

Check it at about 20-25 mins. If the cake springs back when you touch it then it's done.

how large is your large roasting tin - couldi use 2 8 inch sandwich tins?

Marscentio Fri 23-Feb-07 14:09:40

If you're using sandwich tins do 6 flour, 6 butter/marg/ 6 flour and 3 eggs

I think my cake square (which is bigger than my roasting tin) is 12" by 12". Oh I don't know... it's big and it's square lol!

The roaster is about the right size for a proper turkey. Does that help?

hurray - thanks millions

I'm out of baking powder will have to wait until DS wakes up, grr

oh can't you just make it for me

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:12:55

<<runs back from kitchen>>

ooh I've got my meat roasting tin 13 1/2 inches by about 10 1/2"

its MASSIVE though, does that sound right?

Maybe it would do it?

mamag you can do as muffins too - i do a loaf tin and oodles of muffins. First time i made it i was in shock at the quantity of cake batter (but now i know why it has to be sooo big - everyone love it )

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:16:15

ooh i have loaf tin and muffin tray

1 loaf tin / 12 muffins sound about right?

Marscentio Fri 23-Feb-07 14:19:23

Yes your roasting tin would be perfect!

No I can't make it for you. The kids would smell it and it would be eaten before it got to the door.

Kelly1972 regularly makes hers as muffins.

Now... excuse me but I've got to get back to the porn! lol

Umm, let me think - half fill the loaf tin and then half fill the muffin cups. I think i made more than 12, you may have to do a couple of batches. Oh, and cook the muffins for less time than the loaf - about 15 mins until they spring back when pressed.

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:20:26

oh oh just one more Q - my roasting tin has sloping sides - is that ok?

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:21:13


roasting tin
loaf tin & muffins....

roasting tin a bit mingo

Marscentio Fri 23-Feb-07 14:26:10

mine also has sloping sides. Line it with baking paper or foil. Trust me!

And come back and be shocked by my porn post.

It was a dozen muffins - sneak a pic at y pics, i was soo proud i took a photo

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:34:21

lol at pic

Marscentio Fri 23-Feb-07 14:35:59

also PMSL at piccies. Still now that I've outed myself on your other thread MamaG I don't suppose I should laugh at piccies.

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:36:35


I'm not clicking on your pictures madam

Kelly1978 Fri 23-Feb-07 14:37:24

omg, I've aged 6 years

I make mine as muffins as it's far easier to store, and no washing up the roaster

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:38:03

dishwasher, kelly, dishwasher

plus, I'll just line it with foil then lob it (so wasteful!)

Kelly1978 Fri 23-Feb-07 14:38:21

pmsl at the pictures, though I gotta admit to waving around cheesecakes on webcam before now

MamaG Fri 23-Feb-07 14:38:51
