and I wanted this...
However, I wondered where would I get tins to bake them in and also, I already have so many tins of all shapes & sizes that I could supply a small bakery.
When browsing about in one of my favourite websites Pinterest I came across this tip, tried it out and it worked really well.
Recycle tins such as baked bean tins. These ones (in the top photo) were perfect as they were not too high.
Fortunately, I have a tin opener like this one. It cuts a really clean finish and takes away the inside 'lip' from the can but any tin opener will do, of course.
Take the top and bottom off the tin and cover the bottom with tin foil. I kept the bottom piece and pushed it into the foil. It didn't stick but if held carefully it gave a more solid base to the bottom of the cake tin when moving it about. (Hope I'm making myself clear)
I used a tried and tested baked cheesecake recipe. I divided the mixture between 6 of these tins and baked until cooked but still a bit wobbly when touched.
The cooked cheesecake came out of the tin very easily by slipping it through from the bottom of the tin. I tried one with the bottom attached and it was a bit of a disaster having to turn it upside down etc. It didn't come away very easily either.
The end result.
I've tried lots of different recipes and ordinary cakes work really well too.
