Use & Care


  • Before each use, wash pan with hot, soapy water.
  • Oven safe to 400°F.
  • Use only wood, silicone, plastic or other nonmetallic utensils to avoid scratching the surface.
  • For best results, brush pan with an unsalted solid vegetable shortening and dust with flour. You can also use vegetable oil or a nonstick baking spray. If using a spray, check to make sure that it does not contain lecithin, which can cause a gummy residue. Turn pan upside down and tap to remove excess flour. These steps will help ensure easy release and excellent pattern definition.
  • After baking, cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Tap pan firmly a few times, then invert, lift pan away and let the cake continue to cool on rack.
  • To prevent overflow, do not fill more than 3/4 full.


  • Hand-wash. Dry thoroughly.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners such as metal scouring pads, as they can damage the surface.
  • A soft sponge or kitchen brush will remove baked-on food particles. You may need to scrub lightly.

Spiced Apple Cakelets


1 cup (155 g) all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2  tsp. ground ginger

1/4 cup (60 g) firmly packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup (125 g) granulated sugar

1/4 cup (60 ml) vegetable oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract

3/4 cup (210 g) applesauce

1 egg


Preheat an oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease the wells of the apple cakelet pan with nonstick cooking spray and use a pastry brush to brush away any excess spray.

In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and ginger. In a separate bowl, whisk together the brown and granulated sugars until no lumps remain. Add the oil, vanilla, applesauce and egg to the sugars and whisk until very smooth. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth. Fill each well of the cakelet pan three-quarters full of batter. Gently tap the pan against the countertop to release any air bubbles.

Bake until the cakelets are deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes, then turn the cakelets out onto the rack. Let cool completely. Decorate as desired.

Serving Suggestion: Using a serrated knife, gently saw off the bottom of each cakelet to form a flat surface. Use your favorite buttercream frosting to frost the flat side of a cakelet and press another cakelet onto the buttercream to form an apple. Repeat with the remaining cakelets.

Makes seven 3-dimensional apple cakelets.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Cake Pan! Thanks to Nordic Ware for another well-made cake pan. I haven't had an opportunity to use it, but I know it will produce a great cake. I have many pans from this manufacturer and have never been dissappointed. WS did a great job getting it shipped to me...quick service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Apple Cakelet Just used this cakelet and the apple cakes are adorable. The cakes came out very easily and the design detail was easy to detect. Only thing is I followed the recipe that came with the pan, I had extra batter which I baked in something else and the temperature of 400 degrees was much too high. The recipe otherwise was easy to follow and delicious.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for House Guest Brunches The pan by Nordic Ware is certainly typical of their good quality; they don't warp, burn baked goods, and are the best of non-stick. Even with different depth cake wells, all baked evenly. My baking is at 4,300 ft., considered high altitude. This does not affect the pan. However, if you plan to buy the pricey Cinnamon Apple Quick bread mix currently being promoted, be aware this mix is double volume for this pan. The cakes turned out like muffins, not the smaller more "apple" shape balls in the pan photo. Either use 2 pans, if you can afford to buy and store them, or bake half the mixture at a time. Fill just below pan level, with a 1+1/2" dia. ice cream scoop. This should yield a more desirable cake in appearance. The caramel sauce is a bit thin. Next time, I'll reduce the amt. of milk. The package cake mixture is excellent, light and flavorful, not as dense as a muffin, so indeed cake-like. I added 1/4 cup of 14% sour cream, and 1tsp. of Banana emulsion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pan for back to school! This pan arrived tonight- just in time for me to make an apple muffin for my son's last day of summer camp. We used the recipe included with the pan from NordicWare. I don't have enough good things to say about this pan! The apple halves slid out easily and the detail was clear. There was also no sticky residue left from the oil spray or batter. The pan is already clean. They give clear instructions on how to make the apple "sandwich" if you decide to put two halves together. I am using cream cheese frosting for a treat. This is going to be a constant fall/ end of school/ back to school treat in my house! My only complaint is I wish I had made a double batch- I have already eaten two!
