Wilko Muffin Cases and Giveaway #14
I was recently sent some baking bits and bobs to review from Wilkinson (Wilko), the UK family value town store. Most of it was aimed at children, including a pack dough cutters which I would have loved when I was a child, but are no longer quite my thing. However, I pounced on the colourful pack of 12 silicone Wilko muffin cases. As some of you may have gathered by now, I am a big fan of silicone cookware and use it a lot in my baking. As I’ve stated before, it has revolutionised my baking life, with no more arduous lining of tins, or cakes sticking and refusing to come out. These cases were a welcome addition to my collection. For a start I loved the vibrant colours of purple, deep pink, turquoise and lime green. With my eco hat on, it means less wastage and no need to use and then throw away lots of paper cases. But most usefully, they are smaller than the paper muffin cases I usually choose, which means I can make daintier morsels for my less piggy friends.
The cases were soon christened by some honey cakes – the recipe and exact details to be revealed in a later post. I made half of my usual quantity which fits 12 regular sized muffin moulds. This makes for hefty sized cakes, which is fine if you’re very hungry, but not so good if you just want a tea time snack. This half batch size still managed to nearly fill these 12 cases and produced the perfect size honey cake.
