Product Review: The Pampered Chef’s Fluted Pan Stoneware

As much as I love to bake, I love to shop too. This time my shopping bought me to Pampered Chef. Now I bought this Flute Stoneware cake pan about a year ago and somehow it let my house before I could even use it. Well it actually made its way back to my house so I could use it. I absolutely love stoneware, it bakes so well, like cast iron!! I decided to make a 5-flavor pound cake in the pan. I figure it’s a quick recipe and I already have all of the ingredients on hand so let’s make it work.
Awesome job, I tell you!! Just awesome! I absolutely love this pan and will be investing in the entire line. Now I don’t have a local Pampered Chef consultant, my consultant actually lives in Atlanta, but I don’t mind. If you don’t already have a consultant please check out Erika Bullock here or just send her an email
 
Here is the recipe for the 5-flavor pound cake. I have also included the glaze recipe, you can use it if you like.
