We spent yesterday with some friends, enjoyed a fire bowl and watched an in garage beer home brewing session.  There’s a surprising (ok surprising to me) amount of rough milled grains involved that usually end up in the woods,  I brought around 4 cups home with me.   I substituted the grains for oatmeal in a good honey oatmeal recipe I’ve used a bunch of times, it looks good and smells great but still too hot to taste test.

Is that's time of year again, what are y'all working on? Floury baps and banana bread going strong here

I've figured out another of my problems. I use glass loaf pans. From a recent article in the Washington Post:

In baking especially, which material you use can have a significant impact on the results. Ask just about any serious or professional baker whether they prefer glass or metal, and the answer is almost always steer, well, clear of glass.

Simply put, says pastry chef and cookbook author Lauren Chattman, “It’s terrible for baking.”

“We avoid glass at all costs in a professional kitchen,” says Joanne Chang, cookbook author and chef behind the Boston-area Flour Bakery + Cafe.

I don't use metal pans since I don't use any non-stick products. My last batch of bread, I baked at a lower temperature to give it time to penetrate through to the center, and that worked better, although the challenge of having the oven randomly start running away without shutting down still remains. I need to find some plain steel pans, maybe from a commercial supply store or website.

Right now, I'm about to finish the first rise on an apple cranberry sourdough bread.

Cause you're obviously still looking over a year and a half later, but I could part with one or two of my great aunts steel loaf pans. I have 5 or 6 of them. Solid, 1950s steel if your interested.
