Loaf too small for pan, despite being on weight.

I have recently started baking again, and seem to have run into a small problem. I bought a new 10.5" by 5.5" by 3" one and a half pound loaf pan. Now, I am using the Whole Wheat honey-buttermilk recipe from the recipe section of this website, and have tried with 1.5 pounds as well as 2 pounds of dough. Neither seemed to fill the pan the way it should for a sandwich loaf, i.e. above the rim across the loaf pan.
