Kitchen Tip: Bread Pans

Ever turn your bread out of your pans to cool, only to find a little piece stuck here and there???

Me too! But not anymore...

I've mentioned a tip before about cast iron- not washing it, just wiping it out, or "washing it" with a type of fat. Well, this same notion works for bread pans too!

I always butter my pans before I bake in them and now, I've stopped washing them and only wipe them out with a dry cloth or paper towel. This leaves a little fat in the pans- which is MUCH better than leaving little chunks of stuck bread! ;-)

Now, my bread slides right out, every time!

(and I get to skip washing a couple of extra pans, hee hee)

I use stone pans and NEVER wash them...even with water... I just scrap off the little leftovers and put them away... use palm oil the next use and all is well!

Fascinating! I am willing to give this a try, especially since it means less work. ;-)

Donna said...
