Do I have to use a terrine mold?
I'm making a carrot cake recipe that says to use a metal triangle- or rectangle-shaped terrine mold, but I don't have one. Can I use a cake or loaf pan instead?
The mold may be the preferred shape for this particular recipe, but you can use any similar sized mold w/o adjusting the baking time or temps.
You can use just about any pan. But getting the terrine out is much easier if the top of the pan is slightly wider than the bottom. Also I usually line my with cling wrap if not being baked and parchment if going in the oven.
