I regularly bake bread (1+ times a week). I usually reuse a sheet of baking paper a few times, and for the last 20+ times it has been from the same roll. Now suddenly the last two breads I made are completely stuck to the (new sheet of) paper after baking. I have to cut off the bottom after slicing the bread.

What is happening? Some people told me certain brands of baking paper have two sides, one shiney (non-stick). Today I actually checked which side I was using and made sure to use the shiney side, but again it got completely stuck. I thought the dough might be a bit too wet, but it wasn't that wet. Definitely not wetter than I've sometimes had in the past without problems.

    Might be worth grabbing the box (so you can read any production codes off it) and calling the manufacturer - sounds like a potential quality control screw-up to me (i.e., you have baking paper which has not actually been treated in whatever way it should have been before it was packaged and sold.) Not, mind you, that I generally use baking paper (aka parchment) at all for bread. – Ecnerwal Dec 18 '15 at 2:19
  • Thanks, I did call the manufacturer who ended up sending me 2 new boxes, so that was great. I only realised later that my partner bought a refill for the box by a different brand. I felt sorry for blaming it on the original company as it turned out we just got a crappy replacement, and I didn't realise it.. – Thyme Jan 12 '16 at 8:07
