I was really glad to receive this Nut Loaf Tin from my daughter and was very anxious to bake something in it. I googled to see how to bake a cake using this loaf tin and for a split second I was afraid that it may not be able to fit into my oven, standing upright. But just to satisfy my intense eagerness, I removed all the racks and luckily it could fit in on the lowest shelf with a bit of air space at the top.
I googled for a recipe and with some plus and minus modifications, managed to bake a nutty date tea bread.
I was greeted by a 'smiling Huat Kuih' when I removed the lid of the tin. I had expected a round or slightly cracked dome shaped top and certainly not a 'forked' one. But after slicing off the top, it looked pretty decent for the pictures. So that was a consolation and moreover the taste was good, moist and not too sweet. Texture was somewhat like a steamed cake. I could serve it with a light spread of butter as well. I should have levelled the surface before I closed the lid but well, need to remember not to miss this step in my next attempt,
As you will notice, this is a very small recipe and good enough to fit into this Nut Loaf Tin. If the batter is more than halfway up the Tin, the lid may explode or the cake may be squashed while baking. Click 'here' for more tips on using this tin.
