Tip: To line loaf pans with parchment paper, grease all inner sides and bottom of loaf pan, then cut a strip of parchment paper just wide enough to sit flat on bottom of pan and long enough to cover the bottom and extend up two opposite sides (ends or sides of loaf pan) with approx. 2-in. (5-cm) overhang. After baking and cooling, run a knife along unlined sides to loosen loaf. Use overhang to lift out loaf.
