As much as I love baking, lining the tins can be a proverbial pain in the posterior.
A sensible person would do this first, before getting everything out and consequently having no worktop space, I usually end up tracing round my baking tins whilst leaning on a chopping board in the middle of the sitting room floor.
In a heroic effort to plan ahead, I once spent an hour one rainy weekend cutting out about 100 circles of parchment paper to fit all my baking tins. I duly stashed them in an envelope under the sink and that evening the dishwasher hose became detached and all were drenched and had to be thrown away.
As I said the other day it is the small products that make the difference, and Cookasheet from Planit Products is no exception.
The sheet is non stick, easily cleaned and reusable. Simple cut to fit your tins (the one time) and it works a treat as a cake tin liner, again and again and again, no more cutting circles of parchment paper every time you bake!
It is also great for macarons, biscuits, meringues etc. I also use it when free freezing as nothing sticks to it. It does the job just as well as more expensive liners. As it says on the packet “it simply works!”.
It is also great for cooking without oils or fats and can even be used on a tabletop grill (untested by me).
Go and buy a roll, or if you want to be a really good friend buy some and cut it to fit all the recipient’s tin!
Cookasheet is available from Planit Products from just £1. I recommend the 33cm x 1m roll for £3.99 (with free delivery). If you order, treat yourself to the equally excellent Quickachip tray.
Thanks to Planit for my samples.
