    In reading through some diabetic cookie, cake, etc., recipies on food.com (suggestion given in my other thread), I am reading directions to bake in a "tube pan".
    I've never heard of that.
    What it is?

    What might I use as a substitute for one?

    aka an 'Angel Food Cake pan' :)

    I may have one somewhere.... surely Mom had one in her kitchen (I'll look there if I can't find mine.)

    Ok, unless the diabetic cake recipe is one for "Angel Food Cake", would not a regular cake pan work?

    Its probably to make sure the batter in the middle gets cooked good. Some batters wont cook right if they're too thick.
