Baking with silicone
July 11, 2008 12:18pm CST
I just made my first-ever silicone pan cornbread. It tastes yummy, in fact a bit better than cornbread from a metal pan. The silicone smelled a little weird at first, but being its maiden voyage in the oven I expected that. The bread was evenly cooked and popped right out of the mold after cooling 5 minutes. It is delicious =D We've also been using silicone spatulas, and we're going to try to switch over to all silicone pans and utensils. They're easy to clean, and most can handle up to 450 degrees of heat. Anyone else ventured into the world of silicone baking?

i made cupcakes with silicone molds a week or so ago. they were in the shape of ice cream cones. it didn't work so well though, you had to have it baked just the right amount of time. if you didn't then the top would pop off when you tried to get them out lol. but if i had regular cupcake shaped silicone pans it would have been great. i was really impressed with how easy they were to use. and to clean! our metal cupcake pans always end up looking bad because of the cooking spray cooking on them. i am going to go buy some silicone ones.
