I've been out of town some lately, but really wanted to post the pictures of my Guinness Walnut Loaf which is a recipe that I got from Qahtan here:

It turned out to be delicious and perfectly timed since I just read a NY Times article touting the health benefits of walnuts here:

Loaf Pans

I was talking with someone regarding the dimpled loaf pans and they don't like them because of the aluminum.  They only used stainless steel.


What are your thoughts about the metal for bread pans and what pans do you think are best?


Thanks for any input.

Seeking Chewy Loaves

I have some bread recipes that I am trying to "fix".  Whole wheat, multigrain and white sandwich loaf recipes specifically.  They currently yield very airy, light loaves.  This may please some but I am interested in chewy, relatively dense loaves with buttery crusts.  The current recipies produce crusts that are light and tear easily.. I am looking for more "chew" than "tear".  Any suggestions?  Do I need to type the recipe or does something jump to mind that I need to adjust, ie more sugar, more oil, more proofing time?


Many thanks!

Where to get tall loaf pans?

January 17, 2009 - 6:40am -- clazar123

I am looking for a standard length/width (9x5?) bread pan the is about 5 inches tall. I want to make sandwich loaves that don't have the typical "shoulders" loaves get from shallower pans from when the dough rises and tried to spread outward. I have accomplished this with foil as an experiment but would like to find a permanent solution. I have seen the pullman pans but for some reason they seem inordinately expensive and may not be tall enough-I don't want to use the lid.


So, where can I get such pans? I have checked many sites on the internet but not found any yet.

Loaves sticking to pyrex loaf pans

I've recently jumped on the "down to basics" bandwagon. I stopped using spray oils like Pam, and bought a Misto, and loaded it with olive oil. Like everyone else, just trying to save money wherever we can! (the Misto was only $9.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond, and think about the cost of a can of Pam -- $3 or so? Would pay for itself in a few months...)
