Baking Temperatures

Recipes for cakes in most books – would these be for conventional ovens? I have a fan oven and am wondering if I should knock them down by 20 degrees?

Hi Twinnietwo

Most recipes will indicate both fan and non fan oven temperatures eg 180c/160c fan. If a recipe does not indicate both temps it can be read as non fan and the temp would need to reduced by between 10 -20 degrees for a fan assisted oven. If you have the oven hand book that will have a recommendation most suitable for your model.
