As a baker, you’ve got a lot of tools at your disposal, including a home oven. Maybe you’ve even got the latest model with all of the bells and whistles. But have you ever considered that your toaster oven is in fact a miniature oven? And that it’s good for making much more than just toast?
A toaster oven provides an innovative way to bake your favorite goodies, from muffins and cupcakes to breads and mini loaves. Want convenience and ease of use? Check. Want to prepare smaller portion sizes? Check. Want energy efficiency? Check. Want to have a cooler kitchen while you bake? Check. But perhaps the best reason to bake in a toaster oven is that it provides a fresh take on the age-old process of baking, allowing you to get creative and put ingenuity to work.
If you’re ready to master the art of toaster-oven baking, be sure to follow these guidelines:
Use foil. Depending on which rack position you choose, you may need to place foil over the surface of your baked goods to prevent burning.
Adjust your recipe. Use a pan-volume conversion chart, which is easy to find online, to scale your recipe. Or use a recipe that’s designed for smaller batches.
Alter your cooking time. Depending on wattage and temperature (and whether you have a convection toaster oven), cooking times will vary. What you don’t want to do is increase the temperature to speed cooking, as your item could burn on the outside before it’s done on the inside.
