Cakes in electric frypan

mindi1, Jul 3, 11:35am
I know . sounds weird, but apparently it can be done.
The oven in the house I am renting is HOPELESS. I have bought (well, acquired via airpoints) a banquet electric frypan. The instruction book says that it can be used for cakes but doesn't give any guidance really.
I will need to get a wire rack to sit the cake pan on but . apart from that piece of logic . I am bereft of other information.
Anyone have any experience of this. What sort of temperature, time would apply, or rather, how would I adjust cooking time from cakes intended for oven baking!
Thanks in advance.

So what did you bake and how did you do it.I'm very keen to learn as my oven is a bit erratic.

I made my favourite chocolate cake. Put cooling rack on pan and pre-heated on high-sear. Recipe said 50 mins so put timer on to 40 mins. 50 mins was perfect. If I appeared over-excited in message #4 that was because my oven has under-delivered for a year and this recipe produced 3" cakes. Tonight's effort produced a 5-incher!
