For many people a bun sheet evokes memories of young childhood and staring wide-eyed through your mum or grandma’s oven door at a brand new batch of buns or muffins that are turning a lovely golden colour or a rich dark brown if they’re packed with cocoa. The apprehension of these treats used to be unbearable and the smell amazing when the overflowing bun sheet was finally removed from the oven and the buns were left to cool before they could be decorated. Perhaps when the cook’s back was turned you would make off with a forbidden hot muffin or perhaps they’d be too quick for you and you’d get a sharp slap to the back of the hand. Either way, when you finally tasted the treats they would be worth the wait. If you are now old enough to have your own kitchen then with a bun tin, a bun sheet or a muffin tin you can make these same treats, so if you’re not doing so already, what are you waiting for?
If you don’t own a bun sheet or a muffin tin perhaps you’re thinking that you would never use one if you did buy one. However, there are loads of occasions when these items would come in handy, such as the following:
• Birthdays – it is always someone’s birthday (literally) and it is likely that you will have friends and family to fill every month of your year with big days. As a way to treat loved ones, a batch of buns can be a great idea and you can customise them on your bun sheet so they are a little extra special for the birthday boy or girl.
• Christmas – the festive period was once all about religion but now it is more associated with drink, presents, Home Alone repeats and food. Christmas is a fantastic time to enjoy all sorts of food form turkey to ham, to turkey sandwiches…to turkey curry. However, there are some great sweet treats at Christmas too and a bun sheet will allow you to make some lovely buns and muffins to munch in between carols.
• Just because – if you have a bun tin, a bun sheet or a muffin tin you don’t need a reason to make cupcakes and buns; the fact that they are gorgeous is more than enough justification.
The bakeware available continues to develop in terms of design and the materials that are used to make it. It is now possible to buy a silicone bun sheet, bun tin or muffin tin and this material is extremely durable but also flexible to make baking easier. You can also acquire a springform cake tin which is designed to be non-stick and extremely easy to handle. The list of modern bakeware goes on and on so whatever treats you would like to cook, a quality bun sheet or any other equipment necessary will be easily available.
If the idea of making some muffins or buns in your home has got your taste buds tingling you will need a bun sheet and a few other items, and Procook is the retailer that can help.
