I Need Help!!!

The last two loaves of bread that I made stuck to the bottom of my loaf pan. I have a non-stick loaf pan that isn’t scratched at all, and I always generously grease it with shortening.

But still, my last two loaves had their bottoms ripped off as I tried to get them out of the pan.

You can imagine how frustrated that made me!

Do you have a tip for making your bread not stick? Do you think I need to buy a new loaf pan even though mine isn’t scratched? Should I grease it with something else?

I’d appreciate any advice! Thanks!

You probably just need a stoneware loaf pan - after they're seasoned, nothing sticks... Wonder where you could get one... ?!? :)

THANKS SO MUCH for the visit (and the super yummy pie) - It was getting a little too boring around my house so I so enjoyed my company last night :)

Have a great week!

Sarah - I use a ceramic bread pan like this one:

Then I spritz the pan with non-stick cooking spray. That seems to work well and doesn't stick.

The other thing you could do is use parchment paper to line the pan with. It DEFINITELY wouldn't stick with a parchment paper lining!! Hope this helps!

Thanks for the tips ladies. Amy, I might just be contacting you to get a new bread pan; I'm just not sure yet.

Try leaving the bread in for a few minutes to steam after you take it out of the oven. The crust will be softer but it may help it come out.

Also you could try buttering it AND dusting it with rice flour. Sometimes butter/flour does the trick.

I do what Katya suggested - leave the bread in the pan for several minutes. (I do like my crust soft.) And like Carrie suggested, I have used parchment paper to line a stoneware loaf pan that had been used for gluten baking in the past. Grease the parchment like you would the pan, and it definitely won't stick.

Hope you find something that works for you!

ALl my first gf loaves stuck to the pan. It was frustrating and expensive. So now I generously grease and flour the pan every time. I also let the bread sit in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes before removing it. When the pan is cool enough to handle without potholders, then I remove the bread.
