Really, I thought things cook quicker at the top, mine isnt a fan oven
it will be hotter at the top and cooler at the bottom unless gas? def middle imo me mam says lol and shes here i asked her.

i say middle to be safe, whether fan assisted or not , a cake cooked to quickly will be overcooked/burnt on outside and undercoked on inside (_;)

lol, undercooked !!!
i dont know personally for gas but me mum says middle too for any
Thank you x x x
i always put cakes, pies in the middle shelf.

Is something burning?
