Question: Baking bread in a Cast Iron loaf pan
I like baking bread in cast iron dutch oven but lately I've been baking sandwich bread in a loaf pan. I just purchased a cast iron loaf pan and my question is, do I let the dough proof in the cast iron before baking in a hot oven? Won't the pan take long to heat up? I use the normal aluminum pans and they heat fast to bake the bread. Thanks in advance.
