KitchenCraft 2lb Loaf Tin with Non Stick Finish, 21.5 x 11 x 6 cm
About this deal
If you only have a 1lb loaf tin, we recommend either halving the quantities in the recipe or making all the mixture and baking two 1lb cakes one after the other. I always brush the tins with melted butter prior to use, and the bread always falls out of the tins, I have never had a problem with sticking. If there is still mixture on the skewer, you need to put the cake back in the oven for another five minutes and then keep checking on it as before.

It has approximate dimensions of 185x115x88mm or 7¼x4½x3½" (length x width x height), suitable for temperatures up to 230C.If your chosen tin is longer and/or wider than the tin size suggested by the recipe (eg a square or round cake tin), then your mixture will be less deep, so you would expect it to cook more quickly. As a rough guide, a 2lb (900g) loaf tin is about 21cm long, 11cm wide and 7cm high (8 x 4 x 3 inches approx) and a 1lb (450g) loaf tin is 16cm long, 11cm wide and 7cm high (6 x 4 x 3 inches).

Try to avoid opening the oven door unless you really have to as you may cause your cake to sink - rather, watch it through the oven door.
Lowering the oven temperature the next time you bake the recipe may result in more even cooking of the mixture, with the middle cooking as the top browns, rather than a burnt top and a raw middle. However, you will be entering into the realm of “experimental baking” if you deviate from this aspect of the recipe so take a deep breath and prepare to be flexible - and accept that the first time you bake this recipe with the wrong size tin, the results may not be absolutely perfect.
