What advice do you have for making round slices of bread?  My daughter just loves round food.  There is a $67 pain de mie pan available on Fantes.com, or I could try baking in juice cans, and that is free…  but I’ve read warnings about lead in the seam of cans.  I am currently using my Italian bread pan, which makes oval slices, but they are a little smaller in diameter than I want.

One option is to cut a regular square piece of bread into a circle, using scissors or a biscuit cutter. You can eat the trimmings yourself, or dry them out for bread crumbs. Of course, if you really have your heart set on a new bread pan, I say go for it!

I just saw at a yard sale the other day and old pyrex round baking tube. I’m not sure how well it works, but it looks neat. You might find one on ebay.

Here in Australia a very popular cake called a nutloaf was made in a cylindrical cake tin in the 50’s and 60’s and is making a comeback now.
It consists of a sleeve of metal (the ‘tube’ ) which is rolled up and sealed by two metal end caps with small steam holes in them. To bake you put it together, fill and stand it up on it’s end. Cakes come out a lovely cylinder shape and are served sliced into rounds and buttered.

Here’s an example: http://www.tablepride.co.nz/cs/prodDetails.asp?idproduct=1935

I have never made bread in one though…

Hope this is of some use!


P.S.  Slightly off topic but if you or anyone you know is going down the ‘cut off the crusts please Mum’ stage like I am at the moment… I just got my hands on these super cute sandwich cutters - the puzzle ones are a HUGE hit (the leftover crusts get frozen for use in meatballs, meatloaves, crumbed chicken etc!)

You can find round-ish bread molds on ebay - Pampered Chef sold them for a while, but they are available under other manufacturer’s name brands as well.

Here is ‘round’ loaf tin from Lakeland in England.  Don’t know if it’s any good to you.
