Bake Bread in Juice Cans

When baking bread, I use the 48 oz juice cans, sprayed with cooking spray. Knead dough and put a ball of dough in the can filling it about 1/3 full. I bake 8 loaves at a time, and they all fit nicely in the oven. Bake as usual. Let cool for 10 minutes, and the bread will shake out easily.

Filling the cans 1/3 full, how many loaves will you get from a 2 loaf recipe? 4?5? more? A usual loaf gives me 10 slices. How about these? Thanks for your help and time.

Most of the juice cans I have purchased are cardboard. Does this pose a fire hazard? Otherwise, this is a great idea. I've heard of this before only using coffee cans.

This reminds me of Laurel's Kitchen!

Chef4U, I think this is the can; metal all the way through. Great idea, as I was thinking of buying one of those old Pyrex baking tubes. This is much more thrifty. Thanks. :)

My mother did this while I was growing up in the 60s and 70s. She did it probably from the time she was a wife and mother from the late 30s. There was a bakery that did it still in the 90s before we moved in 1997. The bakery is closed I believe but hope that tradition continues on as some still believe in baking from scratch for their families.


I am trying to do as much from scratch as I know what is in the food I feed my family.

My grandmother always made her bread this way. Our meat was Nuteena sliced from a can so fit nicely on the round bread along with the tomato slice. Never could understand square bread. Even Bologna is

I want to make brown bread in soup cans in place of whole tomato cans but what the time adjustment from 31/2 hrs down to what?
