Oven - Helpful hints and tips
• Baking time can be extended by 10-15 minutes, if you bake cakes on more than one lev-
el.
• Cakes and pastries at different heights do not always brown equally at first. If this oc-
curs, do not change the temperature setting. The differences equalize during the baking
procedure.
