2 Quart Brioche Mold

I am making the brioche right now from the Bread bible, and it suggests doubling the batch and putting it in a 2 qt brioche mold. I went ahead and double the batch, then decided to see how big mine actually is. Turns out to only be 1qt, and it was the biggest fantes had. I just cut the dough in 2 and stuck half in a loaf pan. After looking around some, I have yet to find a 2 qt brioche mold anywhere. Am I crazy?

Hmm, I need to double check mine, but the first one seems in the ballpark of the size mine is, and it only olds about a quart.


 


The williams sonoma one is pretty, but discontinued


 


Thanks though


Maybe I'll just buy another one like I have now and make two mid sized loaves

I'd like to try mini brioches but don't have the molds. Would muffin pans work OK until I can get some?

I can't see why they wouldn't. Most of the mini pans are 1,2, or 3 oz. Just measure what your cupcake pan holds to figure how to portion the dough. You won't get the ridges, but I don't think that's exactly the end of the world
