For baking always preheat the oven at the required temperature. Baking in cold or overheated ovens causes improper baking of the final product.
Place the baking tray or baking tins according to the type of your oven.
Electric ovens / O.T.G. : Place the baking tray or baking tins towards the bottom.
Gas ovens : Place the baking tray or baking tins towards the top. A cup of water should be placed in the oven as there is excessive water loss in gas ovens.
Microwave ovens : Baking cycle required is about 1/5 the time taken in a gas/electric oven. Break up the complete baking cycle required in to 2 – 3 baking cycles for good results. Cover the top of the tray or tin incase of excessive cooking on the surface.
Combination ovens : Baking cycle is about 2/3(two thirds) time required in gas/electric oven at the same temperature as that of the gas/electric oven.
