Sweet Cake Pans
on April 29, 2009
Picked up two of these after watching Americas Test Kitchen and getting a serious sweet tooth for a yellow cake that they made. After consulting Alton Brown's kitchen hardware book, I decided to eschew the normal nonstick brands that you find all over Bed, Bath and Beyond and similar stores and sought out all aluminum pans. For those who don't know aluminum, like copper, provides excellent even heat distribution, which is essential for all serious cooking and consistent results.
I picked up two Fat Daddio's pans after reading the numerous reviews praising them. I will simply add my voice to the din. They are light, very attractive and, most importantly, do an excellent job at baking. 9 inches is an optimal diameter, but also you really need to have at least a 2 inch height for the rim so the cake doesn't overflow while baking. My cake came out superb and the pans were easy to clean. Fat Daddio's is just an awesome name for a pan manufacturer too. I plan to get far more Fat Daddio's pans for future baking.
