Hi, I know this is the complete wring time of year for panettone but... I've been challenged to make one and don't have a tin.
Firstly do I need a special tin and if not what's the alternative? I've seen paper cases but with it being the wrong time of year most places are sold out so looking for alternative options.
If I do need a tin where's cheapest to buy one
Looking up just one recipe (King Arthur flour) it said any straight sided 2 qt pan can be used
I bet King Arthur Flour still has the Panettone pans, metal and paper. I have baked cakes and breads in tin food cans. For a Panettone, a large can of peach halves comes to mind.
Hi, ok, I might get away with my 7in tin.
After posting this, I though about coffee cans as a good size for a Panettone. I've used odd sized food cans to bake cakes and breads often and they work perfectly and are, of course, food safe.
