I’ve had my Wolf steam convection oven for over six months. I continue to try and learn how to make maximum use of this cooking tool. One area that I have shied away from using is the “Wolf Gourmet” setting.
The user guide says the “Wolf gourmet cooks food perfection; simply tell it what type of food you are putting inside of the oven. The climate Center knows the amount, shape and consistency and adjust time, temperature and humidity so no baking instructions are required.”
It’s hard for me to trust that this is actually true. Well, this weekend I tested it by baking a Marbled Blueberry Bundt Cake using the Wolf gourmet A13 (cake) with the medium browned setting.
True to its word, there were no visual instructions on the temperature or steam setting. The timer was automatically set for one hour and six minutes.
I kept a close eye on the cake. I opened the oven once about halfway through the cook time to insert a test probe to make sure the cake was already done. The cake was not done.
I left the cake in the oven until the timer finished. While I cannot verify it, it seemed like the oven automatically changed the amount of time left in the cooking process. Unfortunately, I did not watch it the whole time so I cannot document that change.
The result? The cake came out great! See for yourself…
The result of this experiment actually gives me encouragement to try other Wolf Gourmet settings.
Following is a recipe for the bundt cake in case you’re interested.
