Wow, Did I Ever Screw Up...HELP!
Okay, so I was multi-tasking today. I was running back-and-forth between things, feeling so powerful that I could bake and do other things, too.
So I beat up a new recipe for a yeast bread with whole wheat, oats, pecans, and fresh apple chunks in it. It's in the oven now, and smells delicious. What's wrong? Well, it just dawned on me a few minutes ago that I forgot to grease the loaf pans during my I-can-do-it-all fit of omnipotence.
Anyone have any magical ideas of how I'm going to get anything out of these pans in any structured form? 9 x 5 aluminum.
Hi sandylc, I've had the same moment you're having more than once! aggh! But with any luck when they cool they will pull away from the sides of the pan a bit - just don't try to wrestle them out when they're hot because they are fragile when hot. Also, you mentioned it was a yeasted dough? I think you will have better luck because your bread sounds like it will be on the heartier side and can take a little banging. If it doesn't pop out easily, make sure to run a knife around the perimeter. Then try to turn it out again. If it's still stuck, I take a rubber spatula and try to curve it in under the bottoms. Good luck!
