‘I use mine in the air fryer for the kids’ lunches and they turn out great,’ one commenter posted.

‘I did melted chocolate boxes with mousse and they were so easy to get out!’ another added. 

To make the simple brownies, simply fill the ice cube trays halfway full with brownie mix and pop them in the oven for a few minutes so that they rise perfectly. 

Others said they have used the trays to make miniature banana breads, and they are perfect and ‘cook in a fraction of the time’.

While the vast majority of people online were in support of the idea, some were not set on using the ice cube trays for baking.

‘I wouldn’t be risking that, they weren’t make to withstand so much heat,’ one commenter posted.

‘It’s not so much the melting I’m worried about but more the toxins released if the silicone isn’t graded for heat,’ another added.

This isn’t the first time home cooks have used the ice cube trays to bake something or make a meal.

Last year, a woman made banana bites using the trays which are made for the freezer.

Sharing her idea to the Kmart Home Décor and Hacks Australia Facebook group, the woman said ‘Today I bought some ice cube trays and baked up a batch of banana bites, using six ripe bananas. Yum’. 

Others have used the trays to make Bento lunchboxes with separate sections for fruit, cheese and crackers.
