TUBO CAKE


Just made my first ever cake in my turbo benchtop convection overn.  A peach and cinnamon tea cake.  Turned out pretty good too.  It was one of my own concoctions that I adapted to the turbo.

How long did your cake take to cook Ma? Have only just bought a convection oven and I'm still experimenting with it. What type of tin did you use?

I made a peach and cinnamon tea cake and used a metal tin that you would use for half a sponge cake.

150 degrees for about 30 minutes

bit of trial and error I suppose

My Turbo is one of those round ones that sit on the bench top, pretty basic model, just a temperature control and timer.  Two racks, on low one and one high one.

I used the low rack for the cake.

Have cooked a full leg of lamb and baked vegies and took just on an hour and it was lovely and tender too.

Will certainly come in handy when we do the big lap next year.

I never turned the roast although I did put it in for about 20 minutes before I added the vegies.

Put the roast on the low rack and the vegies on the high rack although I have done a turkey roll and vegies all at the same time on the low rack.

I think with the fan and such the cooking is pretty even so I don't reckon you would have to actually turn anything over.  well not that I've come across yet anyway

depends on the model you get I suppose.

I put a piece of foil on the bottom of mine and if there are any spills it catches in that instead of on the bottom of the bowl.  Just throw the foil away.

The oven itself is a pyrex dish so you can just wash it in the sink like any ordinary dish.  Just have to be careful not to get any water on the top part of the oven where all the controls are, but then that's common sense anyway

Cooked a half leg of lamb last night, turned it after 20 minutes and it was beautiful. Haven't tried the vegies yet but sounds like I will have to very soon. Thanks for the info on the cake tin will give it a go. Also tried Xina's recipe for chocolate cake in a mug, turned out great and very delicious.

The self clean function is ok but it doesn't mean you don't have to wash it still.

I spray the inside of the bowl and the racks with spray oil & any gunk comes off very easily.

I love mine.

Cheers

Not as wasteful as turning on a full sized conventional oven for smaller meals, Dave.

I did a before-and-after check on the mains meter and the turbo seems to use about three fifths or less power to produce the same result as the Chef upright.

Cooking for larger groups it would serve well as a supplementary cooker.

There is your problem Dave, you are cooking on your sewing machine.
