Default Baking Pans


I have been asked to make some dessert squares for a funeral lunch at
our church. I rarely bake and don't have a selection of pans. It calls
for a 9 inch pan and mine are 7 inch brownie pans. The 9 inch pan has
81 sq. inches, and I thought I'd pick a couple of pans that totalled
that much, but struck out. I have glass casserole dishes and I remember
that you should reduce the oven temp by 25 degrees if you use glass.
Any other suggestions from you bakers out there? tia....Sharon

Go to the grocery store and buy some disposable aluminum baking pans in
the correct size. You'll be able to stick to the prescribed baking time,
you'll love the clean up (nonexistent), and the ability to transport the
goodies to their destination in situ is to die for... no joke intended.

My suggestion is make a quick run to the grocery store and get a
disposable aluminium pan in the size/s you desire - that way there's
no mess, not fuss, and you don't have to worry about what happens to
the pan after the luncheon. (Either that or buy yourself a 'real' pan
in the size you need if you think you're going to ever want to use it
again.) I use disposable pans for making stuff for church all the
time, because it's so much less hassle!

Hello Sharon:

Being stuck out here in Parts Unknown, Kentucky, choices of cookware
are somewhat limited. So I have been pleasantly surprised by the 9"
square "Baker's Secret" pan I bought about six months ago. It was
quite inexpensive (about $6-8 if memory serves), it's fairly heavy, and
it has a nonstick surface that is not teflon but silicone-based. I
always use a bit of cooking spray anyway. It's been used for brownies,
Rice krispies treats, and casseroles of all sorts.

Best -- Terry

Thanks to all who answered. I am trying to avoid the trip into town
to get disposable pans, so went looking and found a 9x13 that I can use
if I switch recipes. I use that size on the barbeque instead of foil
when I make roasted veggies. They're washable and less wasteful (I hate
waste) than using sheets of foil. Our area doesn't recycle foil pans.
I'll get a selection of different sizes of disposables next grocery day,
since we are both diabetic and I don't bake for us. I usually get asked
to make sandwiches or a relish tray, but this time they asked for a
dessert squares. I had all of the ingredients left over from my annual
Halloween baking session, so I agreed. Thanks again.......Sharon
