Well, okay, maybe it's a *slight* exaggeration to say these loaf liners are the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I am so excited by mine, I just had to share! In recent years, when baking tea breads, I've learned to both prepare the pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper. And although that produces a nice, clean loaf, I've still had the problem of wonky-shaped corners on my tea breads. Not anymore!
I found this package of 40 Made-in-England loaf liners at HomeGoods recently for $4.99, and I absolutely love them. I didn't spray the pan at all, just plopped one of these loaf liners into the pan, poured in the batter, and started baking. I also like the fact the resealable plastic container keeps these loaf liners in pristine shape until they're needed.
This loaf of Pumpkin Chai Tea Bread (recipe here) came out of the pan oh-so-easily. No more spraying and guestimating how much parchment paper to add to the pan, and not one part of the loaf sticks to the liner. Loaf liners, where have you been all my life?
