About Oven Temps

It helps to know your oven…some ovens run hot, some not, sometimes you need to adjust for fan forced, sometimes not.  It depends on your oven.  Getting to know your oven in all its quirks can make a big differnce to the final outcome when baking, as you will know when to adjust cooking times and temps.

Most of my recipes I cook 180°C, usually fan forced. Below is a table showing you the conversion to Fahrenheit or Gas.
