Using Silicone Bakeware

Try using silicone muffin cups. The muffins pop right out, and you save the planet and money by not having to purchase paper liners. They wash easily, too. I got mine for a little over $3 at A.C. Moore with a coupon.

I have found that using silicone mats for baking is the best. However, these sheets aren't the easiest things to store when you are done with them. So my solution to this dilemma was to use an empty paper towel roll and roll the silicone sheet up and stuff it inside.

Silicone pans can be difficult to handle when full of batter or dough. So when using silicone bake ware I put the silicone pan on an upside down cooling rack before filling it with batter or dough.

My solution is to simply put the damp mats right back into the oven on oven racks. Most likely, the oven will be warm from baking anyway, and the mats dry nice and flat in no time.

I bought a silicone baking pan and was wondering if I need to grease it? Do I have to put a cookie sheet under it when I bake with it? It seems so flimsy.

I don't know if you have to grease them or not, but I would recommend setting them on a metal pan of some kind for ease of getting them in and out of the oven.

I have silicone cupcake pans and I use cooking spray and a cookie sheet under them for easy transfer in and out of the oven.

Don't grease them. Do put on a cookie sheet for stability.

When using silicone muffin liners, do I need to "condition" with oil before first use, and is it necessary to use a muffin pan, or will cookie sheet work?

I just bought a silicone baking sheet and I was thinking about just putting it under my metal cupcake pans to line my over rack. Can I do that without putting a cookie sheet under it, or will it ruin it?

Silicone is safe up to 450 degrees F. However, it will be easier to take all the cupcakes out of the oven at once if you put the liner on a baking pan. I would just use the pan and not have to worry about washing the liner too.

Are you trying to protect from drips? You could put a piece of foil down, too.

I use my silicone items on top of a cookie sheet. the cookie sheet stays clean, but it is a lot easier to take out of the oven.

Silicone baking products are specifically made for use in the oven and can be used under anything that is safe for oven use but why would you want to do this? i do not believe it would make your cupcakes cook "better".
Most web sites recommend the following:
Place a metal cookie sheet below your silicone baking mold to hold it properly.
I do not know what your reason would be for doing this unless maybe it is for cleanup. Of course you can do this because the silicone baking sheet is made to use in the oven but it is kinda "flimsy" so try laying just the sheet on the rack and removing it - is it easy to remove? Will it do what you are wanting it to do?
Usually there is no overflow or mess with cupcakes unless you have a tendency to overfill.

Answer this Question

I just bought a blue, flexible, fluted bowl with a funnel in the middle, as used for angel food cake. I bought it at a thrift store and thought it was a Jello mold, but someone told me it is for baking cakes. Can anyone advise me how to use this? I am afraid of it melting in the oven. I believe it is made of silicone. I look forward to your replies. Thank you.

I have several silicone bakeware pieces. I discovered (the hard way) not to use the non-stick spray. It really won't melt in the oven.

I have one of these blue silicone bundt cake pans, too. I really like it. Do NOT use no stick spray. The cake comes out very nicely after it is baked. Be sure to put it on a cookie sheet or pizza pan when you put it in the oven. It is too flexible to just be on the oven rack.

Nope! The beauty of silicone is that it's completely non-stick.

I would like to know if anyone has had any experience with the silicone bakeware. I had a loaf pan given to me, but with no instructions.
