Baking with the Digital Probe

  • When baking a boxed cake, brownies, cornbread, etc., follow these basic instructions:

  • Follow the ingredient and mixing instructions on the box. When baking a cake, you can replace the oil with pineapple juice

  • Coat the pan with unsalted butter or cooking spray before placing the batter into the pan. You can use parchment paper “to fit” the bottom of the pan as it will allow the baked goods to be easily removed.

  • Preheat the pan with the cover on to 250°F (120°C)

  • Place the batter in the pan, cover and raise the temperature 300°F (150°C)

  • Set the digital probe timer to the specific time on the box, using the time for a 9-inch pan.

  • Timer will shut unit OFF when the time has elapsed. Allow to cool sufficiently. Run a knife around the edge of the baked item to loosen from the pan.

  • Invert baked item onto a platter for serving or icing or decorating.

NOTE: When removing the cover after the cooling period, immediately turn the cover over upside down so the moisture that has accumulated on the inside cover does not drip onto the baked item.
