I love the Silicone Bar Pan so much that I have three of them. They are so versatile: use it for cakes, brownies, bars, Bountiful Beer Bread, even individual servings of baked mac & cheese, egg dishes and more.
But the most fun you can have with this little wonder has to be creating a mini cake buffet or even a DIY dessert party. Not long ago I got out all my Silicone Bar Pans, a box each of Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix, Classy Chocolate Pound Cake Mix and Sunny Lemon Pound Cake & Icing Mix. Then I scrounged the pantry for fun mix-ins and toppers.
I just filled each well of the Silicon Bar Pan 3/4 full of batter. Then I use a toothpick to swirl in my additions to make such goodies as:
- Cherry Nut: mini cherry chips and crushed walnuts in Absolutely Almond Pound Cake batter
- Chocolate Raspberry: a splash of raspberry syrup stirred into Classy Chocolate Pound Cake batter; I frosted the completed cake with chocolate ganache and topped with fresh raspberries
- Lemon Blueberry: Two or three fresh blueberries mixed into Sunny Lemon Pound Cake batter; the finished cake was topped with the included lemony icing and drizzled with blueberry syrup
The next time you've got a hankering for a sweet time, invite the gang over for a meeting of the Bite Club!
