LITTLEWIND53 is possibly right about clearance / height, and YOGAGIRLNH's comment about alternative containers makes sense.

If you're making regular bread vs. a quick bread, what you need is (1) relatively high and even heat and (2) a good way to contain heat and steam. That will help you bake quickly without burning, and also give you a good crumb. Trapped steam will help with a little extra lift, etc. A solution that works well in a regular oven and will work in a toaster oven *if* you have the clearance is to use an oven-safe dish with a lid, such as a small casserole. Heat it first in the toaster oven, then dump the dough into it, cover, and bake. Of course, it only works if it fits, and you end up making, generally, a boule rather than a regular loaf.

Actually, I used my little souffle dishes instead. You just want to adjust the cooking times if you use a different pan.

So, did you bake the cakes in tin cans? I've got the cans, just have tried the cakes. Curious, here.

So far, just a couple of the cakes. I want to try the Blueberry Upside Down Cake next, and maybe some of the pies.

I found a great cookbook called "Small-Batch Baking" by Debby Maugans Nakos. It's great for when you want something sweet, but you don't want a lot of leftovers to tempt you. And it's completely toaster oven friendly.

I use my oven or bread maker so i am not sure if there is a secret to doing it in a toaster oven.

I used to bake zuchini bread in small loaves then freeze them in individual packages and give them away to friends and neighbors,I still get requests for them but alas my friend isn't doing a garden this year and I don't really feel up to making bread,maybe next year!I would add some fruit to my little loaves to sweeten them up and they were quite good.I use a convection oven to bake them in.It is small but works great.

I would say you generally want to use an oven for that type of thing. emoticon

Last time baked pie in my toaster oven I burnt the curst. Had set the oven to toast instead of bake.

I am thinking that the toaster oven may not have the cavity height to accomodate a loaf of bread???? Some loaves rise so much it extends well above the sides of the pan.

But if your oven has moveable rack positionings, perhaps put it at the lowest setting, keep the temp down a bit and cook longer, and maybe make buns instead of actual loaves.

I have never tried it myself, but just a thought....

I applaud baking bread in your toaster oven! I don't have a toaster oven...so I either bake it my oven or my bread machine. But, I haven't done it ages, unless you count banana bread!

I purchased a bread mix to make bread in my toaster oven but first try it got burnt. Any suggestions? I did check it periodically but in just a quick few seconds the crust burned.
