flan tins that stick

My flan tins aren't non-stick but instead of greasing them I "paint" the inside of the tins with Lakeland's cake release, works wonderfully. Just decided to try it one day and have used it ever since.

Non stick flan tins

"How can i stop my flan from sticking to my non stick tins, i have tried extra grease but this hasn't helped!"

So, are you making pastry flan cases? Well, I would just say that when I was at school we were taught NOT to grease a tin that was going to have pastry in it. Could this be the problem? Try not greasing them at all. If I make a pastry flan case, I never grease the tins. However, if I'm making making cakes, then I grease the tins and will lightly dust them with flour if I'm making a Victoria Sandwich cake.

The secret with a pastry flan is to bake it blind first. That is... prick the bottom of the raw pastry, line the pastry with greaseproof and put in baking beans (Lakeland sell them)and pre cook your pastry for say 10 minutes to ensure the base of the flan is almost cooked (otherwise it will stick if it's not cooked), then add your filling and cook further. Or, you can line the pastry case with a big piece of foil and scrunch the sides over if you don't have the baking beans. This stops the pastry from bubbling up and helps keep it's shape before you put in your filling.

Flan tins

My flan tins are not non-stick and I never grease them. Surely there is enough fat in the pastry to stop them sticking?

Thank you!

It is a sponge flan we are making, so are trying the suggestions above thank you. The cake release from Lakeland is Wilton's.

Same here, welshcookie; not non-stick, never add grease and flans/pies don't stick.

Flan tins

I was interested in the posters who do not grease flan tins when making pastry flans. Does this apply to all types of pastry and tins such as tartlet tins?

flan tins

Large flan tins, plain and fluted, yes. But if I think about it, I do give a quick wipe round with a butter paper if I am doing small tartlets or mince pies, but I'm not sure it is really necessary.

Yes, all pastry, including the little ones when making individual ones.

Tins

Thanks for the advice. As my tartlet tins were inherited from MIL they are quite old but supposedly non-stick so I will grease half and leave half grease-free to trial it. It might well be jam tarts and if the jam bubbles over they'll stick whatever!

Flan cases...

Arrrh, well if you're making a sponge flan, then I would grease them and then I dust with flour. Put a teaspoon of flour in the tin, spin the tin around so that it coats the whole greased surface and then they don't stick.

BUT, if you are making a fat-less sponge (like the recipe for a Swiss Roll), then I would grease the tin and line with silicone or baking parchment and that will stop them sticking.
