Can You Use A Glass Dish To Bake A Cake? … Brands like Pyrex are made for temperatures up to 500 degrees so they are great for baking cakes and brownies. Keep in mind that your cake may cook a bit faster in glass than it will in a metal pan. Particularly at the top of the cake.

Glass Bakeware

Glass is nonreactive, which means food won’t pick up any lingering flavors from a glass baking dish. It also retains heat better than metal bakeware, which is great if you want your casserole to stay warm at the table or on the buffet.

Do you bake longer in a glass pan?

Glass bakeware is heavier and slower to heat than metal, but once it’s hot…it retains that heat for much longer. So when using a glass pan to bake something like a cake or batch of brownies, you may find that the sides and bottom are brown at a much faster rate than the interior cooks.

Do I need parchment paper for glass pan?

You don‘t hear much about parchment in glass pans because of what you typically cook in them. Baked goods are usually cooked on/in metal pans and are delicate enough that manhandling them to get them unstuck could result in disaster. I see no reason to avoid using parchment in glass.

What do you grease a glass cake pan with?

The traditional way to grease a pan is with shortening or butter and flour.

  1. If you’re using butter, you can just run it around the pan, bottom and sides, using the stick.
  2. If you’re using shortening or a tub of butter, I like to use a paper towel to wipe it all over the pan.

Do you need to line a glass baking tray?

Although it’s good that the glass slowly heats up, it also retains heat so there’s a risk of over baking the brownies once they’re removed from the oven (to avoid this, use foil to line the pans or cut the brownies soon after baking).
