Picking Pans for Baking
You are getting ready to bake and you have several different types of pans to pick from. But which one do you use?
When you are baking pies and breads, use a dark pan. This will aid in browning the crusts better.
When baking cookies or cakes, use a shiny pan. This will help prevent over darkening of the bottoms and sides.
If you decide to use a glass pan, don't forget to reduce your oven temperature by 25º. You may also want to check for doneness a few minutes before the timer goes off.
