Baked and Delicious Magazine

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by Joyous, Mar 9, 2011.

  1. Did anyone get a copy of this today?

    I've had a look through mine, it has some good recipes (but a small selection). Not sure the normal £4.99 price will be worth it (even with 'free' silicone bakeware!) What do you think?

    I'm glad I read your post, egyptgirl. I was considering some silicone bakeware (specifically a muffin tray), but I think I'll give it a miss now!

    Everything I've ever baked in silicone bakeware has not come out of the tray/case successfully.
    It leaves my cakes very soggy - no matter how much longer I bake them for.
    It is a nightmare to clean.
    I would rather use my trusted and sturdy bakeware and spend a bit more time greasing/lining trays than using silicone bakeware again - I paid quite a lot of money for it after reading about it. I was very disappointed.
    Also have several friends who have bought and used it only to give it away again.
    Be interested to hear how you get on Joyous.

    I can confirm that silicone muffin trays are dreadful for muffins ( they stick, whether you grease them or not and the muffins refuse to come out !! )

    They are wonderful, however for .....Yorkshire puddings, never sticks ( every other type of tin I've tried has stuck after second/third use but been using my silicone tray for nearly two years and they cook beautifully )

    Just hope I haven't said too much now, with my luck they'll stick next time ....

    I love silicone 'implements' (which is why I bought issue 2 of the mag because it was only £2.99 and the freebies were worth that) - they are flexible, don't scratch my pans and are better to clean than plastic. I won't be buying it normally though as I'm not a fan of silicone moulds etc. Individual cup cases are ok - it means I can reuse which I quite like and these cook ok. However, I've got a couple of loaf cases and everything I've cooked in them has come out soggy so very disappointed - I will stick to ordinary trays and lakeland 'quick release' instead.

    Oh - and I thought actual magazine was quite naff (but I am more of a 'cooker' than baker anyway)
     
  7. I'm yet to be convinced with the magazine - will probably try for a bit longer, however I think 4.99 is too much (even with the bakeware) as the magazine is so short.

    I love my silicone bakeware and haven't used a rigid pan since i got them.
