How To Line a Loaf Pan with Parchment Paper

how_to_line_a_loaf_pan_with_parchment copy

This is the easiest and fastest way I found to line my loaf pan with parchment paper. I use the pre-cut Reynolds cookie baking sheets. I cut one in half and cut one of the two halves into two. I clip the two smaller pieces onto each long end and then place the larger piece across the width and clip to keep in place. After I pour in the batter, I remove the clips and bake but you can leave the clips in.

CINDY MADE MY SNOWBALL COOKIES

“Hi Jenny. Love your recipes and as i have always done adapt recipes to whatever i have available and my own style! Made these today a version of snowballs, more cookie shape than round, we have eaten most of them as soon as they cooled from the oven for afternoon tea! As i added a little more sugar to my recipe i only dusted a little with icing sugar, used walnuts! Hubby was expecting Kourbethies (Greek Version of shortbreads rolled in icing sugar, made for Xmas and special occasions)! They turned out delicious, but next time i will make a double batch as they are so moorish!  Your recipes are easy and most one bowls which i love!  Thanks and hope you are keeping well! Regards Cindy.”

– Cindy, thank you for your photo. Your version sounds delicious. I am very familiar with kourabiedes because my stepmother was Greek. And you reminded us that it doesn’t have to be Christmas to make these easy cookies. – jennyJenny Can Cook Recipes

Crusty Rolls in My Toaster Oven

Best Easy Crusty RollsWith summer approaching, I’m using my toaster oven more for baking. This time I tried my no knead crusty rolls and WOW – they turned out beautifully! I set the toaster oven to 450, just like my big oven, and just used a smaller baking pan (9 by 13 inches). These rolls don’t spread much so I was able to bake all eight at one time. I plan to make them this way all the time.

As soon as they cool, I freeze these rolls. I find that putting the frozen rolls directly onto my toaster oven rack at 325 for about 10 minutes makes them super crusty, even more than when they’re first baked. It’s a win-win: Less oven use, and even crustier rolls. I love these rolls with salad, with soup, and sometimes I eat a roll,,, with another roll. 😋 Click here for the recipe.

Photo of the Month (February)

Best Recipe Homemade RollsThe world needs more people like Rhonda! She made my recipe for white bread into dinner rolls, but look how she shared these rolls and how much good she did in her community…

Rhonda wrote, “I prepared four batches for a total yield of 36 rolls. We made them to share with residents in the 55 and older mobile home park we live in for our first “2nd Friday Soup Social” held this February.  My son suggested we do this dinner event a few months ago as a way of sharing and getting to know our neighbors. He moved here a year ago and has since realized many of the residents are well over 55 years old and don’t socialize much. We posted our invite in the monthly newsletter that is distributed to all 155 homes in our park. Everyone was invited with us knowing the usual turnout for activities is less than 12 people. We provided two homemade soups to choose from – Minestrone and Chicken Noodle – with a homemade roll.

We made enough soup for 24 thinking some might take some home to their neighbor. We provided cardboard soup containers with lids so they could transport their soup easily if they chose to take their soup home to eat or to share. Eighteen people showed up! All 18 stayed to eat their soup and socialize! Several had seconds and a few took soup to their neighbors. We also took soup to a couple of neighbors we knew were convalescing. We had a great time preparing the soups and rolls. We enjoyed socializing with neighbors we knew and met some new people, too.

We plan to repeat this event in March and April, at least. Given the thanks and the compliments we received, we anticipate needing more soup and rolls. Thank you for a delicious and simple recipe for the best rolls. After trying several recipes, your’s delivered the easiest, tastiest and most versatile rolls for our crowd.”

Rhonda is a gift to her community. I’m so proud that my recipe was a part of this generous and welcoming event. Isolation is common with seniors and can lead to numerous health problems. Bringing their neighbors together is such a wonderful thing she and your son are doing. Homemade food is a gift from the heart and by simply bringing people together, she might also be saving lives. I hope others might be inspired to share food and kindness with those who need it.

RHONDA MADE MY SIMPLE WHITE BREAD INTO ROLLS

“Good evening! These rolls were made using your Simple White Bread recipe.  I prepared four batches using the same recipe with buttermilk instead of milk in two, nonfat dry milk in the other two; three with one egg and one batch without (Oops!) for a total yield of 36 rolls.

“Sorry this isn’t the best picture – I just took a quick one to show my husband.

DAWN (from Vancouver) MADE MY QUICK & EASY CHOCOLATE CAKE

“Hi Jenny, Happy to report your easy chocolate cake works beautifully in a Bundt pan. Which was good news because I don’t know where my round cake pan is right now. 🙂 I greased and floured the pan first, baked for 30 min and cooled it in the pan for 10 minutes. It flipped right out onto the board in good shape. My frosting turned into a glaze because I used Oatmilk which is syrupy, but all in all super delicious and hit the spot! Thanks for the great recipe! ~ Dawn from Vancouver.” (Jan. 9)

– This is great information for everyone. Bundt pans make a great presentation and now we know it works with this cake. Thank you for sharing the details and photos.  – jennySimple Chocolate Cake
