Essential Loaf Pans
Whenever I'm in "homemaker" mode, I always turn to baking breads - Pumpkin Bread, Banana Bread, Cinnamon Swirl Bread, and sometimes Homemade Bread. For afternoon snacks, there is nothing better than a warm slice of Lemon Butter Cake with glaze (recipe here).
For a really beautiful looking bread or cake, I love using these pans with the squared corners. When used with the parchment paper as a liner, the breads lift out of the pan perfectly without sticking and make cleanup easy. It also makes the loafs easy for giving to friends, neighbors or teachers. With the parchment liner, I put them right in a cello bag with a ribbon and tag.
One of my favorites of all time is a Breakfast Basket with a small loaf of Banana Bread.
I have 3 of each pan size so I can make multiple loaves at a time so we have plenty for giving or the freezer.
