Gem Pan Dough?

I'm a home baker and recently purchased my very first gem pan. While it's clear what some of these pans were intended for, (e.g. muffins, corn sticks, and popover rolls), I don't see any clear use case for most of the others.

Does anyone on here know for a fact what kind of breads were intended for the rest? Were these yeasted breads, quick breads, sweet etc? Clearly something that benefited from a formed shape, (ruling out biscuits), was very popular in the past, but that's not a thing anymore. Thanks in advance.

Re: Gem Pan Dough?
The Gem & Muffin Pans page (link at bottom of page) gives a general description of what constitutes a "gem". A web search of "gem batter recipe" returns several examples.
