I just baked some pull-apart buns using a flour, water, yeast, and salt, and baked them for about 15 min at 450* until they were slightly browned on top. They turned out fine, but I was wondering about baking surfaces. Since I don't have access to a baking stone or some such material, and have been using an ordinary metal baking sheet, would glass or ceramic be better? The bottom was nearly almost burned this time.
2.00 C. Flour
0.75 C. Water
1.50 Tsp. Yeast
0.75 Tsp. Salt
I made the dough, then i set it in the refrigerator and let it rise for about 12 hours. Then when i removed them from the refrigerator I divided the dough and made 12 balls, closely placed together on top of a sheet of parchment paper that was placed in the middle of the metal baking sheet. I baked them for 5 min at 450*, then turned the heat down to 400* to bake them for the additional 10 min. Around 13 or 14 min, the dough started to brown, so i figured they'd be done soon enough, so i finished it off at 15 min. Yet the bottom still looked like this...
while the top was like this...
So would there be any better choices given my options of metal, glass, and ceramic?
or do i just need to glaze?
