Crimp Pan help

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a bakery and aquired some crimp pans. Unfortunatley for me, I have never seen one, much less used one before. Can anyone tell me how to use and maybe point me in the direction of correct recipes? Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for your help.

crimp pan

I thought I'd add a picture (worth a thousand words and all) but the forum won't let me so....I'll try to describe

The pans are capable of baking four loaves at one time. Each loaf is round with grooves. The pan is hinged on one side creating a top and bottom. The completed product would be completely round with grooves all the way around it. Hope this makes some sense.

I've seen breads from those in stores and bakeries, they often have raisins in them as panini described, I have also seen them with grated cheese.

the spelling is Moravian if you want to google. As panini says about being just in time, you could have a Moravian Love Feast, you could google that too.;)

also there is an Austrian dessert (cake) that is delicious from pans very similar, called Rehrucken. When I've had it it is chocolate and almond.

It is meant to mock a saddle of venison with bones.

You see pans like that that are not quite complete spheres for the rehrucken, the complete spheres like you have being more for bread, but you could use them for rehrucken too.

For the bread, I would think you could amend a pain de mie recipe if you have trouble finding authentic recipes, or seek out traditional recipes.

They look very nice, I have so many different molds as it is, but I am coveting them, especially in the quality level of the ones in the link.

Yes, I've baked with those pans before (back while living/working in PA, no less ;) ) We just baked the same bread dough in them that we baked in regular and pullman loaf pans....which was the samedough that we made our snowflake rolls from, as well. The only "trick" is to get a handle on the in-pan proofing (underproofed, the finished loaf won't fill the "cylinder"...overproof, and it "escapes" through the edges, having darkened crust peeking out of the sides and all 4 loaves connected by a strip of dough between each. Nothing wrong with it, as it can be trimmed down, but not as pretty...) Oh, and it helps to invert the pan when it's partly baked, to even it out. We only produced 8 loaves per day, but we did sell them everyday.
Bakers - we make a lot of dough, but not so much money

Thanks so much for all of the information. I'll try everything just to see what happens. Will let you know what I accomplish.

Did you ever find a recipe for making bread in this pan? I recently acquired these pans and also don't know how to make bread in them. I am looking for recipes for cinnamon bread to be made in these pans. Thank you.

crimp pan

Sorry, but I never did get actual recipes for this pan. I did follow some of the suggestions given and was able to use a regular cinnamon bread recipe that worked okay.

Thanks anyway

I have never used a pan with a lid before (Pain de Mie) type so I will have to play around with this round pan to see about the rise before baking.
