This baking pan is nice! I'm thinking to get one but not sure other than mini tea cake what else it can be used for. Jelly? chocolate cake?

only egg white is used in this cake, this cake is very healthy.

Hi Kitchen Corner,

I came across a bakery book, they used this mould to make mango mousse and with a piece of thick sponge cake for it base. The mini mango mousse cake look very cute. You can also consider that. :)

Hi Cook.Bake.Love,

I'm lazy to bake macarons so try out this recipe. I still prefer cake which contain egg yolk, it richer and taste better.

Hi Sonia,

I bought this baking pan for quite some time already and this is actually the second time I'm using it. I also bought the bigger one too.

Hi

I love this pan but not sure what else can I bake with this other than this tea cake...

Am thinking of something for my Pri 1 son's sch recess / snack break. This size will be PERFECT for him... Else will be too messy n cumbersome for him.

Any thoughts or suggestion?

Tx in advance!

Hi J,

You can use this pan to bake Financiers, Madeleines or other small cakes.
