How much batter to put in Nordicware cornucopia mold?
Last year, I bought a Nordicware cornucopia baking pan at an outlet store when I saw that it was marked down to $5, figuring that it would be fun to use for cornbread at Thanksgiving. Putting aside for the moment what recipe to use ( I personally like the slightly gritty type of cornbread, with a little sweetness to it) , I'm not sure of either how much batter to put in the pan or how long to bake it. I intend to measure the volume of the pan by filling it with water to check the volume, but I don't know what proportion of the volume of the pan to fill with batter. And how do I prevent the batter from baking unevenly in this oddly shaped pan with varying depths?
Wow, that's quite the pan, had to look it up at amazon. It has a ten cup capacity. When you fill the pan and have it upended on a baking sheet, is it level?
I would consider contacting Nordicware for specific info for this pan; there's no specific info about capacity or batter amounts for this pan at their website. Here's their link:
Have you used this pan for anything yet? Make sure you grease it very thoroughly, before flouring; I'd use a pastry brush to get into the various curves and crannies.
