Pan bread is baked in a container, such as a loaf pan, and includes bread made with white wheat flour and specialty breads such as cinnamon raisin bread and whole-wheat bread.

Hearth bread such as French bread, rye bread and other artisan breads, is baked on a flat pan or placed directly on the hearth (floor) of an oven.

Other yeast-leavened goods include hamburger and hotdog buns, bagels, and rolls.
