Loaf tins are great for making cakes in but I often get asked how to line a loaf tin. You can line on in a couple of simple steps.
Round cake tin sizes are referred to by diameter, however loaf tins are referred to by weight, Eg: a 1 lb loaf tin. Often the size is on the underside of the tin. The best way to line a loaf tin is to use a piece of greasproof paper which runs the length of the tin including up the ends, as I have done in the photo. Once you have cut the greaspfoof paper to size, grease the bottom and sides of the tin with margarine or butter, lay the paper in the tin and press down gently.
