Hi everyone!  I recently bought a silicone loaf pan to use for molded desserts and such and I was wondering since I’ve been baking a lot of bread lately how it would be when used in baking an actual loaf of bread?  I’ve read that cakes baked in silicone pans tend to be lower than those baked in metal pans….I was wondering if this is the case with bread dough as well? And if used for bread, do we still need to spray the interior with oil? Thanks in advance for your input!

Hi,

I always use silicone loaf pan when baking white bread, if it is lower than the metal pan, I guess it is because the sides of the silicone pan was pushed out wider resulting only slightly lower

Hi,

I always use silicone loaf pan when baking white bread, if it is lower than the metal pan, I guess it is because the sides of the silicone pan was pushed out wider resulting only slightly lower bread. Greasing is optional after the first use.
I attached a picture of my white loaves, one (2nd from left) was the one baked using the metal pan.
