Sheet cake pan is ideal for easy baking
Sheet cake pan is often used to bake rectangular sponge cakes, jelly rolls, swiss rolls and jam roly polys.
Favorites with children and adults alike.
Do not be confused with baking jargon when you see that a recipe calls for you to pour your batter into a sheet cake pan.
All they mean is a pan which is rectangular in shape with borders which are either slightly raised or which are raised fully.
There are a few common sizes where sheet cake pans are concerned, the most commonly used one being the 9” by 13” one which is also sometimes referred to as a quarter sheet pan in some recipes.
Other sizes include 11” by 15”, also called a third sheet, 12” by 18” which is a half sheet and 18” by 24” which is a full sheet.
The easiest recipe that you can use when baking a cake is probably the sponge cake recipe.
It needs a few basic ingredients which are easily found in the pantry at any given time – eggs, whisked to a mousse like consistency, half cup of finely powdered sugar and half cup of flour.
Add a few drops of vanilla extract to the eggs after whisking them with sugar, fold the flour into the sweet yolks swiftly but quickly, line a sheet cake pan with parchment paper and bake.
Once out of the oven, flip onto a worktop that has been covered in sugar, peel off parchment, roll and cool before unrolling and filling with a topping or frosting of your choice.
A sheet cake pan is ideal for making jam rolls for children and is a boon to the working mother who has to conjure up a tasty dessert for a brood of kids who have just returned home from school demanding a sweet snack.
When buying a sheet cake pan, ensure that it is made from good, food grade aluminium and the sides are not bent or chipped in anyway.
The edges should be perfect and square shaped for best results. You can use these pans to make savory bread rolls or cookies too.
You do not have to necessarily be confined to making only sponge swiss rolls.
You can also buy a sheet cake pan with divisions in which you can make brownies and other dense cakes.
The divisions make it easier for you to cut them and divide the resultant product.
Cakes that are baked in a sheet cake pan can be sliced and stacked to create multi layer ombre cakes too.
You just have to be confident of your baking and decorating skills.
Shape cakes are also made by using a sheet cake pan – make a rectangular flat sponge cake and then cut out the design you want before frosting it, covering with fondant or coloring it.
Take care of your sheet cake pan as the aluminum does tend to scratch even though it is a hard material and is pretty durable.
Buy sheet pans in different sizes and dimensions so that you have them handy in the kitchen for any baking requirement at any time.
