sponge flan sticks to tin

i make a sponge flan case to fill with fruit. i use 3 eggs, 75g sugar, 75g gluten free self raising flour, (daughter coeliac) it works perfectly and tastes good, but it always stick solidly to the tin!! ive tried oil, marg, butter, none make much difference, should i be coating it with flour or sugar as well? or leaving it until totally cold?
I use a good heavy non stick 2 part tin, but always have to prise it out with a knife, any ideas please??

Sponge cake

You don't mention either Cake Release, obtainable from Lakeland or non-stick baking parchment. Have you tried one or both of them?

Sponge Flan

Hello Natkinson,

I can honestly say this is something that I last made in Home Economics at school. Our tins then were not non-stich and from memory I would say that we buttered and floured them.

However I see this question was asked on the forum previously and there was a lot of posts so perhaps you would like to read through them.

I will ask Noreen to post the thread.

Best wishes

Sponge flan sticks to tin

I am going to give your recipe a go, I would like a gf flan base ! I will try it using silicone paper I have from Lakeland . I do a lot of gluten free baking and not really had sticking problems so far .

Sponge

Now, I know nothing about the subject so I am ready to be corrected. The proportions look very odd for a sponge. 75g flour and sugar to 3 eggs.

I would expect the proportions to be much nearer 150g - 180g of both to 3 eggs.

Where am I going wrong?

Non stick tins that still stick

I couldn't post a link to the thread but I have bumped it up to the top of the Can Anyone Help Forum. It's an old thread from 2012
