I want to make an ordinary sponge cake. The recipe says I need to use a metal cake tin. Can I use an (ovenproof) china oven dish instead?

  • Do you mean something like this?

Yes, it is just fine to bake a cake in a pan like the one we talked about in comments. A pan of that type may stick a bit more than a metal pan, so you might find "cake release" to be of benefit.

It's unlikely that you will have any problems at all, but read Aaronut's answer here.
