How do I use a spring form pan? I may need book bake wear for dummies because I have tried everything.

Hi Melinda and welcome to VBB.I use my spring form pan when I'm making banana or zucchini bread that the recipe is for 2 loaves.My spring form pan came with a flat bottom and tube pan bottom I use the tube pan bottom and just put all the batter in the spring form.I rarely have anything to freeze and it's just time saving for me one pan to wash instead of two.The baking time is about the same.Cheese cake needs to be baked in a spring form using the flat bottom it is just easier to remove the cake after baking.

Hi Verlee, thanks for the link! Isn't Youtube great!You can find tutorials for just about anything you can think of.Whenever I'm making something new I check it out there so much easier to learn by watching vs..reading.That is where I learned how to make homemade ricotta cheese and sauerkraut.both are so simple and easy to make and are so much better than store bought.

Thanks to all of you for the info.  Some spring form pans come only with a flat bottom.

That's what I thought,I'm so glad that I found this one.Now I wish I had bought more.We never know what will come into our Marc's stores.They acquire large quantities of merchandise from other stores that didn't sell and really mark them down.I think I paid $2.99 for it.I have found so many top quality items there.My niece bought an egg slicer fr me there and it is professional quality.The original price tag on it was $20 and she paid a $1 for It and gave all her sisters and I one.It's real heavy and I doubt I'll ever have to buy another one.

I'm going to watch the video.  I have a beautiful new Spring Form; but I have been afraid to try it.  Hopefully, when I watch the video, I'll gather up enough nerve to try it.  It has been sitting in my cupboard for oh so many years!!

It's funny, I have had a Spring Form pan for years and have used it only a few times.
This weekend I wanted to make the Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart that is on this site and it calls for a tart pan with a removable bottom.  The one I had years ago was a bit rusted so when I packed and moved I tossed it out.  I looked for one and could not find one so I decided to use the Spring Form pan and it worked out very well.
Just remember that if you use a Spring Form pan or tart pan with a recipe that has a pretty loose batter you might want to double wrap the outside with aluminum foil.

Good reminder Nikki.  I haven't used mine in years neither, maybe it's time to drag it out and have some baking fun lol.  Then I just have to find somebody to give it too so I don't eat it all!

I always use my springform pan for cheese cake, and I have several recipes that call for baking cakes in a springform pan and then slicing them horizontally before adding filling.  They are really easy to use.  I have several sizes ( 8", 9" and 10").  Sometimes after a cake is baked in the spingform pan, you need to put the cake back in the pan while filling, then refrigerate while the filling sets before icing.

Thanks for the suggestion, Nikki.  I see recipes calling for a tart pan with removable bottom and I've never had one of those.  I figure if I've gotten along without one for 50 years I really don't need to run out and buy one. I'll use my springform.  I have 3 in different sizes.

Gale, this is true.  I have some baking pans that belonged to my mother-in-law.  Who knows how long she used them before I got them?

I have one, but only used it once to make a cheesecake.  Can't say I really remember doing anything special when I used it.  Of course, that was a long time ago.

King Arthur Flour has several kinds of spring form pans but none with the center tube.
