Hello Lindsey,
I have 18cm silverwood sandwich tins which are in perfect condition though they are 10 years on the go
but the depth is only 3.5 cm. the depth of Delia's silverwood
sandwich tins is 4.5 cm, did Delia ask silverwood to make deeper tins? also I HAVE DELIA'S HOW TO Cook Book one, in this book she uses a 2lb loaf tin for Banana and Walnut Loaf and two 1lb loaf tins for Irish Tea BREAD/CAKE,I bought the exact same tins that Delia recommended at that time,there are in perfect condition, often wondered why Delia did'nt use 2lb loaf tin instead of two 1lb loaf tins? these tins are winen in colour and wine on the inside,last timei made Irish Tea BREAD IT WAS DRY,
THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT LINDSEY

Hello Frances Therese,

Yes Silverwood did make the tins deeper for us. As most of the tins recommended in the past were impossible to find we decided to work with Silverwood on a range that everyone can get.

We say that the sandwich tins need to be at least 4cm. Your 3.5cm tins will work for many of the recipes. Certainly all of the 2 egg sponges will work in your 18cm tins.

In Delia’s Cakes, all the loaf cakes will also work in the traditional 2lb loaf tin that you have. The Irish Tea bread made in the 2lb loaf tin (or the 1lb Silverwood tin) worked really well. We do use the traditional 2lb loaf tin parchment liners, which might help (we use Lakeland – but it must be the traditional shape as there is a 2lb loaf tin liner which is too long.)

Best wishes

Lindsey

Hello again Frances Therese,

The Silverwood 20cm sandwich tin measures 4.5cm on the outside edge and 4cm on the inside edge. He is right the label does have Delia’s picture on it and the tin is stamped with the Deliaonline logo. They are generally sold singularly so you will need 2 for most of the sponge cakes recipes.

Kind regards

Lindsey
