Have you ever baked using paper loaf pans?

CindyJ | Nov 23, 201309:15 AM     28

I'm going to be baking a couple of loaves of pumpkin bread to bring to Thanksgiving dinner. I've always baked them in Pyrex loaf pans and they come out perfectly. I've tried using aluminum and other metal pans in past years, but maybe because of the way the pan conducts the heat, I always find that the edges, especially, do best with Pyrex. That said, we'll be traveling by train and I thought that rather than baking, unmolding and wrapping the loaves, I'd bake them in heavy-duty paper loaf pans (yes, I'd wrap them, too). That would make them a bit easier to transport, and the paper pans are somewhat decorative. But I have no idea how the breads will turn out if they're baked in these pans, and I don't have time to experiment with trial loaves.

Has anyone ever used these pans? What's been your experience? If they're not good for baking, another thought I had was to buy a couple of nicer-than-Pyrex glass loaf pans which I'd "gift" to the hostess. Your thoughts? Thanks!
