The size of a traditional 2lb loaf tin
Asked on 20 Sep 2017 by Dilip
I've been reading about loaf tins. I don't have a Delia loaf tin but in the article it states her loaf tin is the same as a 2lb traditional loaf tin but that a 2lb long loaf tin is not suitable for her loaf cakes. I have a 2lb loaf tin. How can I tell what type it is?
Our traditional boxed style 2lb loaf tin measures approximately 19 x 12 x 9cm deep.
I made the marmalade cake. It's delicious but is a bit too crumbly. Is there any reason this might happen?
It’s partly because it is an egg free cake.
A generously heaped ‘Delia’ sized tablespoon helps, as it is sticky.
It does improve if wrapped in parchment and foil and then kept in a cake tin for a few days before serving.
