Pampered Chef: Lid for Fluted Pan

    I have been mixing up the 321 cake at home, spritzing my fluted pan and putting the batter in it - then transporting it to my shows. When the guests are arriving and I am starting my demo, I microwave the cake. Today I discovered that the Deep Dish Baker lid fits the fluted pan just right! It is not snug as it is on the baker, but it stays put and is fine just for transporting the pan to the show - and looks much more professional than covering the top with foil like I had been doing!

    Thanks for sharing. I love the idea of preparing the mix ahead and transporting it in the pan. Plus this way we can promote 2 stones instead of one!

    I sold a fluted pan and lid! Can you believe it! One of my guests was getting the fluted pan anyway and then she bought the lid! By the way - I did a devils food 321 cake and used the peanut butter chips - OMG - it was sooo yummy. The guests could smell it cuz it was cooking during the demo and we cut it while it was still warm and the peanut butter ooey-gooey.

    Cake Recipe

    Here you go - actually I got it from someone else who posted it on this loop! My microwave took about 10 min. Cook it just until it is just starting to pull away from the sides of the pan. It is really good! I love to transport it & have it all ready to pop in the microwave, then the guests can smell it when they are walking in the door!

  8. 321 cake

    How much milk do you use when it is combined with the pudding? The recipes look YUMM! I can hardly wait to try them. I'd like to do the lemon one this weekend, but was unsure on the milk.

    Do you cook it w/lid or just transport?

    Maybe you already answered this question, but forgive me it's late & I need to be in bed, but I get so caught up on this web-site...

    ...do you bake the cake w/ the lid on it, or just transport it with the lid?


    I've attached a couple of microwave cake recipes that are my favorites. They are similar to those mentioned w/ a couple of variations.

    Micro cake 2 I got from this web-site. Thanks everyone!

    I've sold

    16 fluted pans since starting to do the micro cake recipes at my shows! It is my second recipe at all my shows! I started doing the demo in July. That's an average of over 4 pans per month (usually at least one per show). This month I'm doing the pumpkin spice one (Spice cake mix, 3 eggs, 1 can of pumpkin: mix and micro for 10-12 min). It's getting great reviews!

    Hey Julie....no no no. I dont bake it with the lid on it. What I have been doing to help with bookings is I tell my hosts that I will bring an easy dessert. I mix up the cake at home, pour it in the fluted pan and put the lid on top. Looks great on there and fits fine. Then I just take it to the show, take off the lid and bake it during the demo. I tell everyone that buys the pan that I'll send them the recipes too. I am selling one or two at every show! Thanx for the recipes! I did one like the german chocolate one where you pour the coconut pecan icing in the bottom, then the german choc cake mix on top...except I uesd the carrot or the spice cake instead with the coconut pecan icing....yum yum it was sooo good! And very much like fall! C
