It's Easy Being Square

Square

There are so many choices of baking pans with all sorts of shapes and designs in the baking aisles at chain stores and discount kitchen shops. Last year I got a coated metal with 2-inch squares and a silicone with 1-inch squares. I use them for single serve brownies and cakes. Baking the brownies in these pans eliminates the step of cutting it into squares. They are easier to store and serve, and I like it for portion control. Isn't that cool? The flexible silicone is more versatile as it can be used for the cutest mini-cakes and to freeze embedded liquids to decorate drinks, or for freezing lemon juice or stock.

JMom said...

Oh I love those pans! That's a great idea, like you said, about portion control. I have to get me one of those pans :)

those cakes and brownies just look scrumptious!

Gizelle, they are gooey, fudgy, and chewy but the edges are crunchy, sarap. And from a boxed mix too.:)

Thess, the calamansi has a more subtle taste than lemon. And the strawberry blondies are sooo delicious.

Pinky, substitute calamansi for lemon in cakes or muffins...it's different and tastes Pinoy specially if you add lots of grated zest.

Mushroomsfromhome, I like that the brownies are crunchy on all sides just the way I like them.

Ces, thanks. I love gooey stuff too.

Sidney, I knew you are a GENTLEMAN (prefer blondie?), heheh.

Iska, they are harder to handle and breads don't brown enough but I still like using them.

Jay, they were gone in no time, yum yum.:)

JMom, somehow I can discipline myself by eating just one a day and feel satisfied.:)
