Baking Pan Substitutes

Has this ever happened to you? You’re all set to bake a new gluten free, low carb bread recipe but you don’t have the baking pan size the recipe calls for. Arg!

If you’re not sure about substituting pans, don’t fret.

As long as the batter fills the bottom one half to two thirds of the pan you’re OK. For that reason, always select a pan that’s slightly larger to avoid overflow.

When you change the pans it’s important to remember that the baking time will vary. Watch for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center of the baked goods. If it comes out clean it’s done.

Here’s a handy list for baking pan substitutes.

8 inch (1.2L) Round, try 8 x 4 inch (1.5L) Loaf,
or 10 to 12 muffin cups

9 inch (1.5L) Round, try 8 inch (2L) Square,
or 14 to 16 muffin cups

8 inch (2L) Square, try 9 inch (1.5L) Round,
or 14 to 16 muffin cups

9 inch (2.5L) Square, try two 8 inch (1.2L) Round,
or 20 to 24 muffin cups

8 x 4 inch (1.5L) Loaf, try 8 inch (1.2L) Round,
or 10 to 12 muffin cups

9 x 5 inch (2L) Loaf, try 11 x 7 inch (2L) Rectangle,
or 16 to 20 muffin cups

11 x 7 inch (2L) Rectangle, try 9 x 5 inch (2L) Loaf,
or 16 to 20 muffin cups or 9 inch (2.5L) Square

13 x 9 inch (3.5L) Rectangle, try three 8 inch (1.2L) Round,
or two 9 x 5 inch (2L) Loaf
or two 8 inch (2L) Square

10 inch (3L) Bundt Pan, try two 9 9nch (1.5L) Round,
